Virginia Jones is both the best and worst thing: a woman with an opinion. Her comedy is intellectual, philosophical, absurd, and has a lot of animals in it. She came up in Portland, OR, where she returns to do the Bridgetown and All Jane Festivals, and as a feature at Helium comedy club-with great talents like Arj Barker, Sebastian Maniscalco, and David Koechner. This year, she has also toured on the road with great comics like Myq Kaplan and Auggie Smith.
She was a semifinalist in the 2013 San Francisco comedy competition, a rare achievement for a comp that last saw a woman win in 1979. Her monthly, GLENDALIA, was applauded in the LA weekly. She works up and down the west coast, killing in clubs, alt rooms, and casinos alike, but has also done great East Coast shows like DC’s Big Hunt, New York’s Eastville, and ImprovBoston. She has a YouTube channel with 80K hits,a website with millions of visitors, and is a contributor to hot internet properties like Buzzfeed and Love.TV.
Virginia Jones believes comedy is an artform, and has left her humpin’ stool at home.
PANDORA: “Virginia Jones’ comedy features humorously dim-witted logic, a sarcastic, self-deprecating delivery, jokes about animals and personal relationships.”

Top Album Review for Gothic American:
“Artful comedy with soul- Virginia knows who she is. Her comedy is exactly what good art should be, the sum total of the artists’ experience, soaked in impactful emotions and presented with a cohesive voice honed from years of focus and dedication to the form. Virginia’s fans know, and now you can learn just how smart, funny and willing to poke fun at herself this jewel of the comedy scene is. Even her dick jokes are original! Do you know how hard that is? Buy this album!”
