Don Jamieson from "That Metal Show" is one of the hosts of the VH1 Classic heavy metal talk show, where legends of rock hang out and discuss their past and current projects in front of a live studio audience full of metal maniacs.

Amongst his many accomplishments, comedian Don Jamieson's proudest moment is becoming an Emmy Award-winner for his work on HBO's "Inside the NFL." Don and long-time comedy partner, Jim Florentine, lent their brand of humor to the popular sports show, writing, producing and performing sports-themed comedy sketches.

The two have also collaborated on the hidden-camera DVD and Comedy Central web series, "Meet the Creeps" as well as a series of prank call CDs, "Terrorizing Telemarketers," which get a lot of airplay on "The Howard Stern Radio Show." Don is also a joke writer for the country's best celebrity roaster, Lisa Lampanelli and has lent his voice to MTV2′s "Crank Yankers."

Don's stand-up act brings his everyday take on life, the hip, the cool and the tragically sublime into the spotlight. Besides performing at clubs in New York City, Don tears it up at clubs and theaters all over the country. For the last four years, he has been the regular opener for Andrew Dice Clay. His reputation as one of New York City's top comics was cemented when he was asked to perform live on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Don started his career as one of the young and talented comedy minds at MTV helping to launch the careers of comics like Jon Stewart, Kevin James, Pauly Shore and Tom Green, but unbeknownst to many, Don was spending his nights on the local comedy scene developing his own comic style.

Making the transition from comedian to television host isn't easy for most. In addition to "That Metal Show," Don hosted his own series, OLN's "Beach Ambush."

In 2010 Don Jamieson inked a deal with legendary metal label Metal Blade Records to release the comedian's debut stand-up comedy album. The album, "Live and Hilarious," was filmed during Don's performance at Bar Anticipation in Lake Como, New Jersey, on January 30. When asked about why he chose Jersey as the location for his performance for the upcoming stand-up album, Don had this to say; "I'm a Jersey boy and there's nowhere better to record my first ever live comedy CD than good old Dirty Jerz! Malls, mullets and metal!!"
