Jann Karam: It's a long way from an open mike in Scottsdale,AZ to closing "The Late Show with David Letterman" last week, but Jann Karam did it with "only about a million" stops along the way. Seeing the incredible enthusiasm Jann brings to everything she does, and especially to every performance of the one year run of her solo show "Reclining Nude on La Cienega", makes you wonder aloud, "How does she do it?"
Why she does it is obvious, ...... she loves what she does, .....she loves to perform,..... Jann loves her audience and plays to it whether in the 92 seat Tamarind Theatre in Hollywood next week or on "The Late Show" last week where the rapport was with the live audience and the national viewers got to look in on the fun.
Los Angeles audiences certainly respect Jann's credentials like "The Second City" in Chicago , "Catch A Rising Star" in New York, and "The Laugh Factory " and "The Improv" in Los Angeles; an extensive list of TV comedy credits like "The Tonight Show", HBO's "Young Comedians", "An Evening at The Improv", and "Politically Incorrect"; and TV acting appearances as recently as "Norm" two weeks ago or back to "Seinfeld", "Mad about You," a regular on "The Carol Burnette Show," and many, many others.
Add to this opening for musical headliners in Las Vegas, Tahoe, and Atlantic City.
And add to that writing, directing, and starring in the festival favorite and award-winning movie, "Under The Big Muu Muu" for Castle Rock Entertainment.
