Hot hilarity from JANN KARAM, JACKIE FABULOUS, KIRA SOLTANOVICH, MONIQUE MARVEZ and PAULA BEL.
Jann Karam is a comedian, actor and writer who the LA Times calls "a woman blessed with looks, talent and the gift of restraint," and the New York Times, "a comedic breakthrough." Her numerous TV credits include Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show, HBO'S Young Comedians Show, Seinfeld, and many more, including ABC's How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
Her humorous, widely-viewed political essay "A Superficial Take" was published in Huffington Post; she released the well- received comedy albums Live at the Blue Loon (2001) and Same Guy, Different Shirt (2010); and she wrote, directed, and starred in the multi festival-award-winning short film, Under the Big Muu-Muu (Castle Rock Entertainment), a funny, touching look at mother- daughter relationships. Jerry Seinfeld calls it "Funny and original! If you have a mother -- when you get to the end -- you can't not cry.? She has also written a book based on Reclining Nude, a collection of funny, poignant essays about life, love, and finding a place to lie down.
Jann loves sharing her knowledge and comedy experience with this talented and clever group of artists!
JACKIE FABULOUS, a native New Yorker from The Bronx, moved to California 15 years ago to get a law degree and a husband. After successfully earning her Jurist Doctorate and eloping in Vegas, Jackie learned she was better suited to play a lawyer on television and that standup comedy was the actual love her life. Divorced and ready to party, Jackie Fabulous realized her destiny was to become a multifaceted performer that is at her best when she’s riding waves of laughter by connecting with all races, genders, and social economic classes on a very personal level. Jackie had many compelling reasons to move back to The Bronx after getting her degree and failing at marriage. But the financial hardship of being a struggling artist and her younger sister becoming the victim of a crime relegating her to a wheel chair for life only motivated Jackie to fulfill a completely different calling that came to her in her 30’s after 4 years of law school.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
