On their own, Jackie Kashian and Laurie Kilmartin are fantastic comedians that you should absolutely keep an eye on with whatever they do (The Dork Forest, Conan, 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad, This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux).
Together, they make our new favorite podcast, The Jackie and Laurie Show on the Nerdist Podcast Network.
There are no guests and it’s as impromptu a conversation as they can make it, but the pairing of Kashian and Kilmartin brings a wonderfully, brash, open, unfiltered dynamic to the show. They give a great, unique window into talking shop in comedy and the lives of two successful, working, veteran comedians that hasn’t really gelled in the world of podcasting the way it has on The Jackie and Laurie Show.
There’s a bit of an ‘inside baseball’ vibe to the way they break down their own comedy, where they’re performing, what’s going on in their lives, but their chemistry, the razor sharp riffing and roasting, and the perspective of two older female comedians can make it engaging for plenty of those not in the world of comedy.
