Jackie Kashian has been a national touring comic for over 10 years. She has appeared on NBC, VH1, and A&E (Comedy on the Road - back in the 1700's). She has performed at prestigious comedy festivals around the country including: the HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Bumbershoot Arts Festival and the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. Most of Jackie's credits on the television are for stand-up, but she can act. Sure, she's only done one TV show (an airport cop who busted Jim Dial with a big bag of pot on Murphy Brown), but she takes classes and stuff so as to be prepared.
In 1985, Jackie got drunk and heckled Sam Kinison in Madison, Wisconsin. She was told, with some sarcasm, by management, that open mike night was on Sundays. A charming fairytale so begun, has not, as first feared, lead to jailtime.
Jackie's standup is a mixture of story telling and sharp commentary which most people relate to which is tragically funny since she is the youngest of six children, and was raised by wolves. Wolves that meant well and did their best.
Jackie also has a trilogy of solo shows. "Salesmen and Thieves" was well received in 2001 in LA and New York. She has also put up "How Did I Get So Feminine?" and "It's a Terrible Burden Being Right."
Jackie enjoys video games, go-carts and other traditionally tiny-child activities in an ongoing attempt to block out reality. Also; wicker gives her the creeps. Now you know too much. You will be silenced.
Tabari McCoy recorded his first comedy album in his basement when he was either 10 or 11 years-old. But it was terrible and much like the item central to Indiana Jones and The Lost Ark, it was filed away to never be heard again.
Luckily for the public, Tabari has gotten much better with age – and as soon as he takes the stage, you’ll have no problem discovering just why that is.
A fan of stand-up comedy dating back to the days "Bill Cosby: Himself" was new in theaters, Tabari’s sense of humor reflects a wide assortment of influences, speaking on everything from every day annoyances to pop culture, sports and his own personal experiences. Tabari's conversational, every man style has led him to open for a wide range of today's stars, including but not limited to Mike Birbiglia, Charlie Murphy, Tommy Jonhnagin, Jimmy Dore and Billy Gardell among others.
But no matter what he says, he says it all with one simple goal in mind: Making people laugh – and hoping he doesn’t anger his family or God in the process.
