Jacob Roberts Sexy Headshot

I'm Jacob and this is my sexy headshot.

I'm currently in Los Angeles writing, directing, and performing in movies and episodic content.

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 Austin Film Festival 2022, Outfest LA 2022, and over 40 other film festivals across the world.

I'm a recent graduate of Harvard College, where I performed in drag for the Hasty Pudding Theatricals. My script and lyrics were twice selected for the Pudding's annual comedic musical through a rigorous competitive process.

I recently received Outfest's Colin Higgins Youth Filmmaker Grant, a 15k award to support the career of an emerging LGBTQ+ filmmaker of exceptional promise. At Austin Film Festival, I won the Blackmagic Collective Emerging Filmmaker Fellowship Award.

My upcoming films include Waterfront Property, a psychological thriller comedy, and Knowing Me Knowing You, a comedic psychodrama.

I'm interested in telling offbeat stories about sex and sexuality, and I hope to be the world's first Jewish comedian.
