“I do some political material, only because I’m alive and walking around,” comedian Jackie Kashian explains. “But I mostly talk about being a middle-aged white lady. I talk about being married and I talk about my family, who continue to be part of my sets. I’ve got some great new stories about my dad.” Those familiar with Kashian’s work and backstory know a lot about her father. “He’s hilarious, always,” she says. He’ll often ask his daughter why she doesn’t do more material about her siblings. “Because you keep talking. It’s not my fault.” As a salesman, Kashian’s father hung out with some rather shady characters in the past and, as it turns out, the present. “He loves a dirtbag,” she adds. One such nefarious friend passed away earlier this year. “He was one of the worst people I ever met,” she notes, “and I told him, ‘I’m glad the dirtbags in your life are dying.’ He said, ‘I know younger dirtbags.’ So he’s going to hang out with younger dirtbags; a new generation of scumbags he can bond with.” 18+.
