Welcome to the official website of comedian, actress, artist, and writer Jann Karam.
The LA Times calls Jann “a woman blessed with looks, talent, and the gift of restraint,” and the New York Times calls her “a comedic breakthrough.”
Jann’s 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 and widely-viewed political essay “A Superficial Take” was published on the 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 and 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.”
Jann 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.”
