Who is Jake?
“The first thing you notice about Jake Sasseville is his charisma. He projects an aura that is mischievous, slightly irreverent, charming and somehow Zen, all at once.” –THE EXAMINER
Jake Sasseville. He’s just a guy with outsized ambition, who lives in a world where “no” means “try harder.” He’s got big dreams and/or big delusions, depending on how you look at things. You may have never heard of him, but he’s a household name. I mean, his grandmother lives in a house, and she’s throwing the name “Jake Sasseville” around all the time.
At 21, he became the youngest host on late-night TV. His show followed Jimmy Kimmel’s, and was broadcast to 35 million homes nationwide. Months later, the only screen on which you’d find Jake, was that of his best friend’s computer. During Skype sessions. But did he give up? NO.
Which is why by 25, Jake had already experienced that bumpy and improbable rise to fame that most only dream about. By 26, the crash into obscurity was well underway. Now, nearly 27, he’s ready to share his story and get back on the top. Again.
Jake Sasseville is a force to be reckoned with. He is building his own media empire, piece by piece. And he’s doing it in his own way. “If TV networks aren’t ready to see that I’m changing the advertising, television and music industries, then I’ll continue to push my way on TV anyways,” says Jake. “Eventually they’ll see the pink elephant in the room, and the cash cow in the front yard.”
His new show, Delusions of Grandeur, debuts this fall, and will either take America by storm or slight drizzle. But most likely by storm. Jake has too much tenacity for it to be any other way, so grab your umbrellas America, and stay tuned.
