James Veitch was born on April 1, 1980, and from the United Kingdom. He is an English comedian and best know for his humorous interactions with the authors of scam emails using slideshows and video effects.
Recently, HBO Max removed James Veitch’s stand-up special Straight to VHS after multiple women accused the comedian of rape and sexual assault. On July 23rd, Meghan Klien learned that about an upcoming HBO Max special featuring a comic named James Veitch.
She and James studied together in 2009 and during that time she was 22 years old senior at Sarah Lawrence College, where James is said to be a graduate student, then pushing 30. Later, Meghan Klien took to Twitter and wrote “It was common knowledge to stay away from him when I was an undergrad… It makes my skin crawl to see someone like that succeed knowing how much he violated my classmates. #creep” In May 2008, Julia while having dinner at the comedian’s apartment he shoves her onto the bed and forces himself on her anally, she wrote on Facebook.
Julia Tackett wrote “I remember rushing to the bathroom: the dress was white, and I didn’t want the blood to stain it on the train ride home,” and added “I had flirted too much. I had had too much to drink with dinner. I had said something I couldn’t remember, which must have been the secret handshake that invited rape.”
Fast forward to August, two Sarah Lawrence alumni, Meghan Klien and Jael Simonson-Tunic, sent letters to HBO Max, Team Coco, O’Brien’s production company, and WME, detailing Veitch’s alleged sexual misconduct while he was a graduate student. After learning this news WME has since dropped Veitch as a client.
However, James Veitch declined to comment on the accusations. HBO Max spokesperson said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, “We were deeply disturbed to learn of these allegations of unacceptable behavior by James Veitch and will be removing the special from our platform for now.”
Since 2018, several women came forward and accused James Veitch of Sexual Assault.
