In Heroes we Trust _ Venice
JC Coccoli is Earth's fiercest comedy darling. Equal parts explosive and mindful, her comedy is engaging, cry your eyes out funny, and comes from the heart. Ms. Coccoli is part Native American, Italian and Polish born in Pittsburgh, PA. Currently based in Marina Del Rey she is a comedian, writer, producer, and activist.
In a career successfully spanning thirteen years, JC landed a leading role on the hit MTV sketch show "Hey Girl" (directed by Wet Hot American Summer creator, Michael Showalter) and VH1's reboot of Best Week Ever early in her career. From there, she hustled to cement her stake in the early 2000's standup scene performing regular gigs at the Comedy Store, The Hollywood Improv (her home club), Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater, and The Laugh Factory. She has produced outstanding festival performances at San Francisco Sketch fest, Women in Comedy festival in Boston, Art Basel in Miami, The NY Comedy festival, SXSW, Bonnaroo, Comic Con, Coachella, Copenhagen, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Her TV appearances include Comedy Central's Key and Peele, CORPORATE, WHY? with Hannibal Buress, E's Chelsea Lately, and NBC's Last Comic Standing season 8.
F R I N G E comedy is an eight year running live show produced by JC Coccoli & Anjona Ghosh that provide weekly Art & Comedy events on Mondays and Sundays throughout Los Angeles. These shows are the mecca for the Standup comedy scene in LA and are rehearsal grounds for professional comics to punch up material.
JC is also an advocate for Women's Rights supporting Gloria Steinem and @EqualityNow an advocacy program that strives for equal rights for women and girls. Her debut comedy album produced by ASpecialThing records will be released in 2018 entitled "Help! I need a new boyfriend" and will be available on iTunes.
