Franklyn Ajaye, aka "The Jazz Comedian," is a man of many talents.

He is a TV writer (In Living Color, Politically Incorrect, NYPD Blue), film actor (Car Wash, Stir Crazy, The Jazz Singer), author (Comic Insights the Art of Stand Up Comedy) and musician.

In 1973, he made his network debut on The Flip Wilson Show. Ajaye has made three comedy albums, Franklyn Ajaye, Comedian, I'm A Comedian, Seriously and Don't Smoke Dope, Fry Your Hair.

He was born in Brooklyn, New York but raised in Los Angeles by a Sierra Leonean father, whom he is named after, and an American mother (named Quetta), making Ajaye, as he likes to joke, a "true African-American". He has released five comedy albums to date: Franklyn Ajaye, Comedian (1973), I'm a Comedian, Seriously (1974), Don't Smoke Dope, Fry Your Hair (1977), Plaid Pants and Psychopaths (1986), and Vagabond Jazz & the Abstract Truth (2004). The last two were recorded in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. Ajaye made his network debut on The Flip Wilson Show in 1973 and made his first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson a year later. Ajaye emigrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1997, but returns to the United States periodically to do work on television. His last American television appearance was on Paul Provenza's "The Greenroom" on Showtime in 2011. He is known in Australia for his appearances on The Panel and Thank God You're Here, and his popular one man shows "Nothing But The Truth", "Talkin' Vagabond Jazz", and "Vagabond jazz & The Abstract Truth" at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
