Maria Bamford
Maria Bamford
Maria Bamford stars in the semi-autobiographical Netflix comedy series Lady
Dynamite, lauded as “revelatory” by Entertainment Weekly and one of 2016’s
must-see shows by Variety and Rolling Stone. The series was created by Mitch
Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park) and was renewed
for a second season that premieres on May 20th, 2017.

Maria is the creator and star of Maria Bamford: the special special special and of
the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, which screened at the Museum
of Art and Design. She was the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy
Central Presents specials and starred alongside Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis
and Brian Posehn in the Comedy Central series The Comedians of Comedy and
Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie.

Maria voices characters on numerous animated series including BoJack
Horseman, Adventure Time, Legend of Korra, Puss in Boots and PBS’s Emmywinning
series Word Girl. She can also be heard voicing lead roles on Fox’s
Golan the Insatiable and Yahoo’s Talking Tom & Friends.

Maria recurred as DeBrie Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development reboot,
for which she was praised as a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the high
points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine). She has also recurred
on USA’s Benched, FX’s critically-praised Louie, and currently recurs on the ABC
hit Fresh Off the Boat. Her new special Old Baby is available on Netflix.

Jackie Kashian
Jackie Kashian is from South Milwaukee, Wisconsin which she loves like The Shire. Her standup has been described as “like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered.” She draws on personal experiences, but with a sardonic delivery matched with a geeky interior and surprisingly chill exterior. Her comedy has been cited as top ten on Amazon, top five on Vulture and critically acclaimed on IO9. She’s done stand-up all over the world, both performing for US troops in Iraq to Hong Kong to touring Australia for ten weeks for the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Jackie Kashian is comic, writer, podcaster and occasional actor... she’s done stand-up on The Conan O’Brien Show, a plethora of shows for Comedy Central, and was a semifinalist on Last Comic Standing. Most recently she had roles on IFC’s Maron and Netflix’s Lady Dynamite.

Since 2006, Kashian has been hosting The Dork Forest Podcast. She invites a wide variety of guests, from stand-up comics, authors, actors and perfectly nice regular people to “dork out” on the thing they love most. Her new podcast on The Nerdist Network is with Laurie Kilmartin, called The Jackie and Laurie Show and is entirely about stand-up comedy. Her new album came out in March of 2017 and is called, “I AM NOT THE HERO OF THIS STORY.”
