Jess Hilarious the comedian, actress, and storyteller who brings everyday humor to life with her witty one-liners and infectious sense of humor has made her official debut on The Breakfast Club.

Her announcement is rife with petty jealousy, featuring voiceovers from some podcasters including Akademiks, Joe Budden, Corey Holcomb, Uncle Murda, and pretty much everyone who jumped the gun when she first made the announcement a month ago and thought she had missed the boat.

The comedian from Baltimore officially unveiled her project on Monday morning with the release of a short trailer that featured the Chicago Bulls’ hit song Sirius, popularized by Michael Jordan.

As the third segment of their weekday morning show, Jess Hilarious will join Radio Hall of Famers Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy.

“Jess Hilarious joining The Breakfast Club excites me much. As an actress, comedian, podcaster, and now co-host of The Breakfast Club, she is a force to be reckoned with”, according to iHeartMedia executive vice president of programming, Thea Mitchem.

“Jess was the obvious choice to work with DJ Envy and Charlamagne to continue The Breakfast Club’s tradition of educating, entertaining, and enlightening the community.”

With one of the biggest media platforms, I’m excited to collaborate,” Jess Hilarious stated.

“I’m sure that by securing the third seat at The Breakfast Club, people will see that Jess Hilarious is more than just a comedic personality; it’s a cultural figure.”

Previously, The Breakfast Club used Jess Hilarious as a guest host on occasion while looking for a replacement for outgoing co-host Angela Yee.

Yee declared in August 2022 that she was quitting The Breakfast Club to start her own daily program on iHeartRadio called Way Up With Angela Yee.

Ray J, Nyla Simone, and other celebrities have been invited to co-host The Breakfast Club alongside Charlamagne and DJ Envy since her departure.

Next Monday, February 5, is the official start of Hilarious‘ duties as the third co-host of the program.
