Janae Burris is a comedian, writer, and actor from South LA, now living in Denver. Her years growing up in one of Los Angeles’s roughest neighborhoods and her California Institute of the Arts training in avant-garde theater each inform Janae’s bold, unique comedy and performance style—which is why she was selected as a Just For Laughs New Face in 2019. She has been featured at Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, Indiana, and Denver’s High Plains Comedy Festival.
Janae was great and I think that all of the students had fun. She was great in engaging students and most students had their video on, which was awesome to see. Appreciate you in helping us coordinating the event!
