I'm so psyched to be back at the major major All Jane Comedy Festival this year!
The All Jane Comedy Festival is a celebration and showcase of the funniest, smartest and most original women working in comedy today. Our mission is to inspire, encourage, discover and promote the best and most unique women in comedy.
This highly curated festival aims to showcase a broad range of styles and perspectives among women in comedy while guaranteeing that every show – and every performer – delivers top notch comedy.
This year’s All Jane women’s comedy festival will take place October 11-15, 2017, at Curious Comedy Theater and other venues in Portland, Oregon.
The line-up includes nationally and internationally recognized stand up comics, improvisers and sketch groups as well as extraordinary local talent. Women comedians also have an opportunity to meet and work with each other, share stories of their challenges and successes, and trade ideas on how to navigate this tricky business.
In previous years, we've brought you MARIA BAMFORD, JACKIE KASHIAN, KAREN KILGARIFF, JANET VARNEY, PHOEBE ROBINSON (2 Dope Queens, Sooo Many White Guys), LAUREN LAPKUS (Orange is the New Black, Comedy Bang! Bang!), PAGE HURWITZ (executive producer of Last Comic Standing), ALICE WETTERLUND (Silicon Valley, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), APARNA NANCHERLA (Comedy Centeral, CONAN), NAOMI EKPERIGIN (Braod City writer), CAMERON ESPOSITO (Take My Wife, Same Sex Symbol), and dozens of other resounding voices from the next wave of the 21st century comedy.
