Con-Volution 2015’s first confirmed guest, Jackie Kashian, will serve as Toastmistress and be recognized as a Guest of Honor!
Jackie’s comedy is like listening to a really racy, often geek-oriented episode of NPR’s All Things Considered. She is a national touring comic with a new hour standup special, “This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux” (available in a variety of formats via www.jackiekashian.com and www.allthingsrecords.com). She recently made her late night comedy debut on Conan O’Brien’s television show, has her own half hour special on Comedy Central, was a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing and has recorded This American Life with Ira Glass.
Jackie interviews people about their obsessions — be they gaming, literature, cosplay, knitting, WHATEVER — on her weekly podcast, “The Dork Forest.” She’ll be recording live at Con-Volution, and you can catch previous installments via iTunes or at www.dorkforest.com.
