Biography
 

 

Jamie Kennedy was born in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. He attended and graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School in 1988. That same year, Tina Fey graduated from Upper Darby High School, just up the street. He is an Irish American comedian and actor. After studying acting in college, he began his career as a Hollywood, California extra and honed his skills at voice impersonations. This skill led to, among other things, an unorthodox success in the way of creating a false persona, screen agent "Marty Power" (a fictitious person). Posing as Marty Power over the telephone, Kennedy attracted the attention of real agents and managers who would later book his performances. He eventually landed his first major motion picture role as Randy Meeks in the films Scream and Scream 2.

As a performer of stand-up comedy, Jamie Kennedy is best known for his sketch performances on his television reality show, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment (which became the WB Network's highest ranking new show in 2002, but which was cancelled in April 2004 due to falling ratings).

Jamie Kennedy has also performed minor roles in a number of other films.
