The Jackie and Laurie Show
The Jackie and Laurie Show Live is a standup offshoot of the popular hour-long weekly podcast featuring comedians Jackie Kashian and Laurie Kilmartin. They started the J&LS back in December 2015, after noticing that most comedy podcast hosts and guests were male. They talk comedy, women, women in comedy and… men.
Jackie Kashian started standup in 1984 in Milwaukee and Laurie Kilmartin started in 1987 in San Francisco. They only met recently, because in the 80’s, 90’s and aughts, two female comics were rarely allowed to appear on the same show.
Between them, Jackie and Laurie have released 7 albums, appeared on CONAN 5 times, starred in a Comedy Central half hour, published two books (one a NYT bestseller) and written for 3 late night shows.
They’ve been around and they have a lot to say.
