FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, CA (FRIDAY MAY 23, 2014) – Jackie Kashian (http://www.jackiekashian.com) second album for Stand Up! Records This Will Make An Excellent Horcrux, is now available via iTunes, Amazon, the Stand Up! Records store (http://standupcrap.com) and other fine webtailers near you!
This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux is 18 tracks of offbeat and wry observations of the mundane and the extraordinary. Delivered in an excitable yet conversational delivery, smart, funny and with surprising emotional impact. Jackie Kashian takes a look at how a ‘spooky, reading girl’ finds it impossible to role play in a shark costume with her husband, haggling for soccer jerseys in Saudi Arabia, the horrors of reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo which is a “nightmare” and how guys talk about their wives – which are always the same 3 jokes. Always.
It’s her delivery that makes it so special, rooted in traditional stand up but uniquely modern and more succinctly it is Jackie’s singular voice in the comedy world: More than just saying something funny things, Kashian says things funny,.
Jackie Kashian’s comedy is like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered. She recently made her late night comedy debut on the Conan O’Brien show, has her own half hour special on a very large comedy network that shall not be named, was a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing and has recorded This American Life with Ira Glass for NPR. She has a very popular and funny weekly Podcast where she interviews people about their obsessions. Tune into The Dork Forest on iTunes or at her website: www.dorkforest.com
