with Joyelle James

Jackie Kashian's standup has been described as “like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered.” Her new album “I AM NOT THE HERO OF THIS STORY” is critically acclaimed and debuted at #1 on iTunes/Amazon and #3 on Billboard.

She hosts The Dork Forest. With over 4 million downloads, the show is a safe space for dork on dork dialog with Jackie interviewing anyone and everyone about what they LOVE to talk and think about.

She is also a co-host to a comedy podcast on the Nerdist Network called The Jackie and Laurie Show. www.jackiekashian.com has links to it all.

Joyelle James

Joyelle Nicole Johnson brings joy to the stage. As an adult, she prides herself on being the nerd she was ashamed of growing up. Subsequently, her writing includes an extensive vocabulary (that had her shunned by lesser mortals as a child) combined with a worldly perspective (due to her inability to sit still).

Onstage, Joyelle talks about her life inspired by the storytelling greats. After growing up in the suburbs of NJ and being ridiculed for enrollment in both Band and Asthma Camp, she attended Boston College. Upon graduation she moved to LA and commenced a comedy pursuit which has taken her around the world.

Honored to be a reliable opener, her comedic dream came true when she was asked by her idol, Dave Chappelle, to open for him in Little Rock and Atlanta. She's featured the most for Hannibal Buress and her largest audience to date was opening for Russell Peters at the Borgata Casino. Touring with Maria Bamford even garnered her an honorable mention in the failing New York Times and a review by The Laugh Button. Highlights of her career include being chosen as a semi-finalist in Vancouver for NBC's Stand Up for Diversity showcase which lead to NBC flying her to LA to perform as a top 10 finalist in the competition. From performing at festivals like Sketchfest, Bonnaroo and Bumbershoot, to making her television debut on Wyatt Cenac's Night Train for SeeSo, Joyelle has a lot to look forward to with this track record. Time Out NY told everyone why they loved her. At the close of the incessant depression that was 2016 she reached comedy mecca becoming a regular at the world famous Comedy Cellar. Performing at every comic's fantasy venue spawned another article from the failing New York Times. Presently, she's on tour with Lizz Winstead's Lady Parts Justice League making her dream come true combining comedy and activism.
