Jess Lane is a comedian who also enjoys directing, writing, acting, and telling people, "we are definitely starting a band." As an improviser, she was a member of the UCBLA Harold Team Mister Town City, the Mess Hall team LaserDisc, the LA indie-darlings Varmint, and a host of Mach Improv. At the Magnet Theater, she was a founding member of long-running Megawatt team Featherweight. She can be seen acting in Adult Swim's Fart-Copter, the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rodney Ascher's The Nightmare, and various sketches on Funny or Die, UCBComedy, or Nerdist.com. As a writer, she has contributed to Billy on the Street, Reductress.com, Screen Junkies, Conan's TeamCoco, and ComedyCentral.com. She was a staff writer for Chris Hardwick's Nerdist.com, She Said - a series hosted by Cameron Esposito for Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, and the UCBComedy unscripted team The Buzzards. As a stand-up, she's performed all around LA and NYC: at Holy Fuck, Sleepaway Camp, Power Violence, The Macauley Culkin Show, The Cinder Block Comedy Fest, Hell Yes Fest in New Orleans, as well as various other shows that don't shun uninhibited feminist, misandrist pedagogy. She was the co-host of Not For Nothin' with Erin Lampart at Echoes Under Sunset, and Extra Credit with Christian Spicer at The Clubhouse. She is very proud of almost winning the Lethal Lottery once, losing by only a measly 3 votes. (This is an outrage.) As a writer & director, her original pilots Mizz Miraculous and The Brothers Sisters screened at the New York Television Festival in 2014 & 2013, she directed the documentary web series Unprofessional Wrestling with Dan Black for Funny or Die, and her web series Queer Bones, Punks, My Dead Lesbian Ex-Girlfriend, and many others, have screened at Channel 101 in both New York and Los Angeles. She currently directs the all-vegan food review web series Da Snack Boys.
