JAKE FOGELNEST started a television show from his New York City bedroom when he was fourteen years old. Now he's in his twenties, has a beard and not as cute as he used to be.

SQUiRT TV made its debut in January of 1994 on Manhattan public access. The show featured Jake spouting off his opinions of music, film and television. Jake wrote, produced and directed the entire series himself. The one-man show quickly became a cult success in Manhattan. Jake's quirky style, sense of humor and edgy commentary attracted an A-list fan base of night owls including, The Beastie Boys, Janeane Garofalo and Eric Bogosian -- just to name a few.

SQUiRT TV quickly evolved from Public Access to the mass audience of MTV . Still recorded from Jake's bedroom, the show featured more celebrity guests including Adam Sandler, Beck and The Kids In The Hall -- some of whom had appeared on SQUiRT TV in its original Public Access incarnation.

Jake is a regular commentator on VH1's I Love The... series. Other television credits include his own hour special for Comedy Central , MTV's 12 Angry Viewers, Upright Citizens Brigade , and guest appearances on The Jon Stewart Show , Howard Stern and Late Night With Conan O'Brien . Jake had a memorable cameo in the film, Wet Hot American Summer and can be seen for eleven seconds in Gigantic: A Tale Of Two John's , the documentary on They Might Be Giants.

Jake served on the writing staff of the hit VH1 series, Best Week Ever . He's written numerous articles for magazines such as Spin , Ray Gun , Bikini , Alternative Press and Jane . Jake regularly contributes jokes to Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live and he's been featured in the Say Something Funny section of America's Finest News Source, The Onion .

As a director, Jake has directed music videos alongside Spike Jonze. He co-directed, Jerry Minor Is A Black Man for the Saturday Night Live alum. He served as the Assistant Director for Sarah Silverman's one-woman show, Jesus Is Magic at Joe's Pub. He's worked on tour with the Upright Citizens Brigade and has developed numerous comedy projects at their downtown New York City theatre since it opened. His show Eye Candy , starring Dannah Feinglass and Danielle Schneider (which Jake co-directed with SNL's Amy Poehler) was selected for the 2002 HBO US Comedy Arts Festival . Jake's last UCB production, George Bush Is A Motherfucker was produced by Adam McKay, former head writer of Saturday Night Live and director/co-writer of the hit Will Ferrel film, Anchorman .

Jake won the 2003 Emerging Comics Of New York Award for Best Director. In 2004, he won a New York City A.I.R. Award for hosting the Top 92 Worst Xmas Songs Of All-Time on 92.3 K-Rock , where he currently enjoys working as a sleazy disc jockey.

You can occasionally catch Jake live on-stage when he feels like doing Talk Show , a favorite live event of Time Out New York . Most recently, Jake has been hard at work on a new television project for MTV, “Ten Years Later.” Jake stars in the show and serves as the Co-Executive Producer.

At twenty-six years old, Jake Fogelnest is well on his way to a fantastic career, resting any fears that he'd end up as "that little weird dude that used to host that show."
