Meet Your Performers

Naomi Karavani

Naomi Karavani is a comedian and on-camera correspondent and writer for the weekly comedy news show "Redacted Tonight" in Washington, D.C. She featured in a number of comedy festivals such as the Women in Comedy, Cape Fear Comedy Fest, the Underground Comedy Fest, the 202 Comedy Festival, What a Joke Fest, Laugh Your Asheville Off, Rogue Island Comedy Festival, Limestone, and the District of Comedy Festival. She performs stand up around the country and co-produces the weekly stand up comedy show Bitches Brew in Brooklyn and the monthly "mock university lecture series" Fale University in Washington, DC.

Mary Jane French

Mary Jane French is a comedian and filmmaker based in Richmond, Virginia. She has opened for national headlining comedians Neil Hamburger, Cameron Esposito, Brandie Posey, and Sara Schaefer. Mary Jane has been performing stand-up since she was 18-years-old, with a brief hiatus after accepting her need to transition from Male to Female. When Mary Jane began performing stand-up again, now publicly as a trans woman, she began cultivating material that captured her early experiences with transition and recorded that material in a home-made special entitled Mary Jane French: Bearded Woman. Mary Jane’s sophomore release is a split EP, Live at Gallery 5, where she does all of her material that she knew wouldn’t apply after she received bottom surgery. Currently Mary Jane is producing a series of comedy variety shows as well as her podcast, Mary Jane French: Novice

Jason Weems

A native of Baltimore, Jason Weems' engaging & conversational style on stage leaves audiences feeling like they've just finished talking to a close friend. It also simultaneously acts as free therapy for him. Jason has been seen at the most prestigious invitation-only comedy festival in the world, Just For Laughs in Montreal, and reached the semi-finalist rounds on two separate seasons of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. His first hour-long comedy special, entitled “Vol. 1: Intellectual Property,” was filmed in his hometown and released independently. His online series “The Lunchtime Show” (thelunchtimeshow.com) premiered on Marlon Wayans’ comedy platform WhatTheFunny.com in 2014. In 2017, Jason was a finalist at the HBO sponsored American Black Film Festival Comedy Competition in Miami. His live show is truly one of a kind, and tailored fit to each unique crowd. www.jasonweemscomedy.com
