James May Booking Agency Profile

Book James May for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
James Daniel May is a journalist and television host from England. Most notably, he co-hosted the driving show Top Gear from 2003 to 2015 with Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond. Additionally, he was a director for the long-gone production business W. Chump and Sons. Along with his former coworkers from Top Gear, Clarkson and Hammond, and former Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman, he co-presents the television program The Grand Tour for Amazon Prime Video. May has also given programs on topics like toys, wine culture, science and technology, and the state of manliness in contemporary society. From 2003 to 2011, he produced a weekly piece for The Daily Telegraph's automotive section. In 2015, May launched his own YouTube channel called "JM's Unemployment Tube" when the BBC canceled Top Gear as a result of Jeremy Clarkson's firing. The channel, which primarily consists of cooking videos shot in his kitchen and mock constructions of Airfix models, has more than 230,000 followers as of March 2021. On this channel, his most recent video was published on February 20, 2021. In 2016, May and his former Top Gear co-hosts established DriveTribe, a social media platform for auto enthusiasts. In 2019, May replaced JM's Unemployment Tube with films she produced on the Drivetribe spin-off brand Foodtribe, frequently using a tiny, bedsit-style kitchen setup known as "The Bug-out Bunker." Since then, the channel has adopted the name "What Next" When one of his Foodtribe videos went viral, May became a web meme. May prepares two cheese sandwiches in it, and she says the word "cheese" while doing so. The saying gained notoriety and was incorporated into numerous memes and graphic macros..
