Jackie Kashian (kayshun) has been a national touring comic for over 25 years. She’s had appearances on "Conan," was featured in Maria Bamford's "The Special Special" and on NBC's “Last Comic Standing.” She has also appeared on NBC, VH1, and A&E (Comedy on the Road - back in the 1700's). She has her own half hour comedy special “Comedy Central Presents Jackie Kashian” and you’ve seen her on Comedy Central’s “Stand Up Showdown,” “Stand Up in Stilettos,” and “Stalking Emo.” She has also performed at prestigious comedy festivals around the country including: the HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Bumbershoot Arts Festival and the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. Most of Jackie's credits on the television are for stand-up, but she can act too. Sure, she's only done one TV show (an airport cop who busted Jim Dial with a big bag of pot on Murphy Brown), but she takes classes and stuff so as to be prepared.
Jackie also has a trilogy of solo shows. "Salesmen and Thieves" was well-received in 2001 in LA and New York. Her next one sarcastically titled "How Did I Get So Feminine?" followed by "It's a Terrible Burden Being Right."
Moving to L.A. has become standard for many performers, and since the last time she was here Jackie's been featured on “Maron,” “@ midnight,” “The Guest List,” “The Comedy Show Show,” ANOTHER “Conan,” “2 Dope Queens,” and “Fangirling,” to name just a few. She also has 4 albums she has dropped over the years “Circus People,” “It’s Never Going to be Bread,” “This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux,” and “I’m not the Hero of This Story.” Jackie’s standup is a mixture of story telling and sharp commentary which most people relate to which is tragically funny since she is the youngest of six children, and was raised by wolves. Wolves that meant well and did their best.
Don’t miss this high energy comic who is fast becoming one of our all time favorites.
