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 Polish and Italian born in Pittsburgh, PA. Currently based in Marina Del Rey she is a comedian, writer, producer, and activist. 

In 2013, 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. 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. 

Her TV appearances include Comedy Central's Key and Peele, WHY? with Hannibal Buress, E's Chelsea Lately, and the semi-finals of NBC's Last Comic Standing season 8 with (you guessed it) Roseanne Barr as her mentor.  In 2015 she was then hired as a supervising producer to 'stylist to the stars', Rachel Zoe for her background in high fashion commentary and vintage consignment. Rachel's live talk show, "Fashionably Late" appeared on Lifetime with guests Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Nicole Richie and more. This was an outstanding feat for JC as fashion and comedy are finally getting the nods they deserve. Soon after, she was brought on as a Producer for the FOX and HULU smash hit, PAGE SIX TV which followed celebrities and their glamorous life styles which in turn, connected JC to other women and allies that fight for the true cause of equality.

Since 2011, JC has been a dedicated advocate for Women's Rights working alongside Gloria Steinem and @EqualityNow (an advocacy program that strives for equal rights for women and girls). JC has produced the red carpet events for two high profile galas  in NYC and LA and in May of 2018. Teaming up with HULU for HandMaids Tale Season two, JC has represented the advocacy program by producing shareable content to inspire the uprising of inequality throughout the US and around the world. 

After her baby sister passed suddenly in 2016 from a dose of heroin, JC's life has been turned upside down. Taking time to spend with her family and gaining strength after such a heartbreaking loss became the most important task on her agenda. Now, she educates herself to better understand the opioid addiction crisis in the states, and spends time talking to users to better empathize with the decisions that lead them to self-medicate. Humans are worth understanding. 

As for LIVE events, JC 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 debut comedy album, entitled "I support women of COLOR" will be produced by ASpecialThing records and will be released in 2019. She has completed her work at Maker Studios/Disney Digital as a writer and performer and currently is preparing for her own STAND UP SPECIAL.
