Jamie’s mother, Louise, was an adopted child. When her marriage to his father failed, his grandparents, Mark and Esther Talley, stepped in and at age 7 months adopted him too. He says he had a very rigid upbringing that placed him in the boy scouts and the church choir. During high school, he played quarterback for his high school team and was good enough that he got press in Dallas newspapers. He studied music in college.
He released a music album in 1994, “Peep This” and sings the theme song for his 1999 movie, “Any Given Sunday”. However, in 1989 his life changed when a girl firend challenged him to get up onstage at the Comedy Club. In fact, he says he took his androgynous stage name because he learned that women got preference for mike time on open stage nights. That led to his being cast in “Roc” and “In Living Color” and ultimately to his own WB network TV series. He has a daughter, Corrine, born in 1995 who lives with her mother.
