television writer & performer
Oh, hey there.
I'm Jacob and this is my sexy headshot.
I'm currently in Los Angeles writing, directing, and performing in movies and episodic content.
Statistically speaking, you probably didn't see me in a sold-out run of Mae West’s Sex at the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Festival or on screen in 7 Blowjobs, a videoplay presented by New York City’s legendary La Mama Experimental Theater Club.
(A note from my attorney: In light of the somewhat suggestive nature of these two titles, Mr. Roberts wishes to assure the public that he is not an adult film star.)
I wrote, directed, and acted in Half, a short film about a half-Jewish, bisexual guy whose relationship gets shaken up when he comes out to his girlfriend. Half is an official selection at Outfest LA 2022 and over 20 other film festivals across the world.
I recently received Outfest's Colin Higgins Youth Filmmaker Grant, a 15k award to support the career of emerging LGBTQ+ filmmakers of exceptional promise.
I'm interested in telling offbeat stories about sex and sexuality, and I hope to be the world's first Jewish comedian.
