Bio

Virginia is a character, a big and tall touring stand-up comedian with singular talent and literal genius. Currently meeting with APA for comedy and literature representation, she is incredible with comedic acting. Virginia is proud to be on the list of Laurie Kilmartin and Jackie Kashian’s Comics of the Week. She paid her dues in Portland, OR, headlining the Bridgetown and All Jane Festivals, performing with David Koechner etc, before she moved to Los Angeles and headlined Santa Cruz, Chico, LAFF, Women in Comedy and more festivals. Her album, Gothic American, was on WhoHaHa’s list best female comic albums of the year. “So good!” has been yelled about her by both Kristen Schaal and Maria Bamford, and Pete Holmes of HBO’s Crashing “Really enjoyed” her. Virginia has toured nationally, headlining in Kansas City, Indianapolis, etc. This is an incredible voice in modern comedy and acting.

Her album, Gothic American, was on WhoHaHa’s list of prominent women comedian’s albums in 2016. She was a contributor to both Laughing Matters, an art exhibit about women in comedy, and The Girl In The Show, a book about three generations of women in comedy.

Virginia Jones believes comedy is an artform, just like her kind of liberal, uppity shits.

PANDORA: “Virginia Jones’ comedy features humorously dim-witted logic, a sarcastic, self-deprecating delivery, jokes about animals and personal relationships.”

“Omigod so good”- Kristen Schaal

“The one person on the bill that everyone always talks about is Virginia Jones.”- Dwight Slade

“Yay so good!” – Maria Bamford

“Really funny, really good stuff”- David Koechner

“You’re really funny”- Arj Barker

“You’re getting hard to follow.  I hate you.”- Tim Harmston

“Virginia is the smart-ass with the heart of gold- she’s the best of the best and wickedly funny always”-Robert Buscemi

“I’ve known her for a clean decade, I’ve taken her on the road and she came to my wedding, but I couldn’t be bothered to take a second to write her a goddamned blurb”- Auggie Smith

Her album, GOTHIC AMERICAN, was included on Best of 2016 lists by WhoHaHa and the Portland Mercury!

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!”
