SPRINGFIELD, MASS (August 14, 2019) – MGM Springfield and John Tobin Presents continue to bring the funny to downtown Springfield with four new shows at Roar! Comedy Series featuring actor, comedian and producer Jamie Kennedy. Kennedy will ring in 2020 with performances scheduled December 29-31.

Kennedy landed his big break when he was cast in Baz Luhrman’s “Romeo + Juliet,” alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. His career quickly kicked into high gear when he co-starred in his breakthrough performance as Randy Meeks in Wes Craven’s “Scream,” and its follow-up “Scream 2.”

In 2002, Kennedy created “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment” which became the WB’s highest-rated show. Kennedy portrayed several wacky characters, including audience favorite “Brad Gluckman,” the white rapper from Malibu who came to life on the big screen in 2003 when Kennedy starred in “Malibu’s Most Wanted.”

Kennedy has worked alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Steve Martin, Greg Kinnear, Brad Pitt and Vin Diesel, and has been featured on major television networks including CBS, WB, MTV, Comedy Central, Showtime, NBC, Fox and VH1.
