TV producer/writer and co-founder of Jackhole Industries
Daniel Kellison is a multi-Emmy nominated TV producer/writer and co-founder of Jackhole Industries (with 20 year partner Jimmy Kimmel). Amongst their many shows, he co-created Comedy Central’s popular “Crank Yankers” and “The Man Show” and was the original executive producer of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Before that, he spent eight years as a producer for “Late Night with David Letterman” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” He has also executive produced and co-created shows for Quincy Jones, David Blaine, Jamie Foxx, Rosie O’Donnell, Norm Macdonald and Kanye West, amongst others.
In 2013 (along with partners Doug DeLuca and Mickey Meyer), Kellison launched JASH, a comedy production company seeded by Google, with partners Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim & Eric and Reggie Watts. Since then the channel has evolved into a branded business—and both a digital and linear studio, having won (4) Cannes Palme D’or awards and created original content featuring Jack Black, Scarlett Johannsen, Bono and Neil Patrick Harris. JASH has also made multi-million dollar deals with Diageo, Grey Goose and Chevrolet, amongst others.
