Jann Karam is a comedian, actor and writer who the LA Times calls “a woman bless with looks, talent and the gift of restraint,” and the New York Times, “a comedic breakthrough.” Her numerous TV credits include Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show, HBO’S Young Comedians Show, Seinfeld, and many more, including ABC’s How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
Her humorous widely-viewed political essay “A Superficial Take” was published on Huffington Post; she released the well- received comedy albums Live at the Blue Loon (2001) and Same Guy, Different Shirt (2010); and she wrote, directed, and starred in the multi festival-award-winning film, Under the Big Muu Muu (Castle Rock Entertainment), a funny, touching look at mother- daughter relationships. Jerry Seinfeld calls it “Funny and original! If you have a mother — when you get to the end — you can’t not cry.”
She has also written a book based on Reclining Nude, a collection of funny, poignant essays about life, love and finding a place to lie down.
Of Jann’s work Larry David raves, “She was good when I saw her.”
