“I had a picture of HK on my dorm wall.  Who knew my dorm wall was a vision board.  Next?  I meet Bon Jovi in front of their Jet. @HongKongComedy

We are very excited to be able to bring Jackie Kashian out to Hong Kong next week to make her dorm wall dreams come true.  This quote is a great representation Jackie’s comedic style:  honest, autobiographic, positive and funny.

Already a 25-year veteran of the business, Kashian visits Hong Kong in the midst of a sizzling hot streak. The Los Angeles-based comedian appeared on Conan for the first time last month to preview bits from her third stand-up album This Will Make A Lovely Horcrux,” which lands in stores on April 1 with a sizeable buzz surrounding it. Credit both acclaim and acumen for the added attention – Amazon.com included her previous disc in its Best of Comedy rankings for 2010, long before she built a cult fan-base with her weekly podcast “The Dork Forest.”

The best way to get to know Jackie ahead of her performance is to have a listen to her Nerdist interview with @Midnight host and longtime friend & comedian Chris Hardwick.
