The Comedy Minute With Jason T. Gaffney Season One
September 16, 2015 /LGBT News/ Award winning writer-producer and out gay actor Jason T. Gaffney again teams up with small or LARGE Productions to present his new web series, The Comedy Minute With Jason T. Gaffney.
Written and produced by Gaffney, season one of the sketch comedy series has just been released. The TCM cast regulars feature Gaffney, along with two other out gay actors as well as two bisexual actors.
Conscious of the need for more diversity in improv and sketch comedy, Gaffney created The Comedy Minute after being inspired by the Upright Citizen’s Brigades policies to diversify the comedy world.

“I wanted to create a series where gay men could show off their comic chops,” Gaffney said.

Jason T. Gaffney is one of the writers, producers, and leading actors in small or LARGE Productions’ hit LGBTQ film, The Perfect Wedding.
“I came out when I was fifteen and my family was completely supportive,” Gaffney said. “And while I appreciate conflicted and angsty coming out stories and closet comedies, I honestly don’t relate. I’m very lucky, I know that, but I also know that there are more and more young gay men like me. And we naturally want to find our reflection in the movies that we watch -- we want to see ourselves represented.”
So Gaffney pushed his co-producers and movie-writing partners to write a boy-meets-boy romantic comedy in which the gay main characters have loving families. The result was The Perfect Wedding, an award-winning comedy that found distribution with Wolfe Releasing, and has gone on to garner over 50,000 reviews on Netflix.
