Yes Jan’s at it again! This time it’s a new adventure as I’ll be performing my one person play on Home Sharing titled “SuperHostess.” After 27+ years in the comedy business, it’s fun to do something totally different. I don’t stand there with a mic and do joke, joke, joke . . I actually walk around and tell stories.
“SuperHostess” is about my 6+ years home sharing my house through a home sharing site (think VRBO/AIRBNB/HomeAway). I’m performing it on 3 Saturdays in June during the Hollywood Fringe Festival – a festival where literally anyone can do any kind of play they want.
WARNING: As a comedian, we practice our jokes and test, test, test. This is NOT the case here. It’s the first time I’ll be performing this, so we really don’t know what we’ll be getting (me included). This is more story than stand up, BUT you will learn something about home sharing as I tell my story.
PLEASE COME OUT!! Details on the play and tix info are:
The Hudson Theatre, 6539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA.
SuperHostess runs 75 minutes. The dates are June 4 (6:15 – 7:30), June 11 (2:15 – 3:30), and June 25 (2:15 – 3:30)
Tickets are $15 or $10 with the discount code: Super. Click Here to purchase tickets

Strangers living in your house? What a GREAT idea! As a professional comedian and keynote speaker who travels a ton, Jan McInnis took the plunge into the home sharing community as a host to make a few bucks while she was on the road. Turns out money wasn’t all she got. Weird questions, a brand- new $15,000 water pipe (yay!), an education in other people’s living habits, and some friends from around the world are just a few of the other “perks.” SuperHostess is her funny, frustrating, and eye-opening true trek into the world of sharing her home with strangers. All the stories are real, though the identities and details have been changed.
Please tell your friends. . . Thanks!

About Jan McInnis: For over 25 years Jan has traveled the country as a full-time (no waitressing involved) comedian, and keynote speaker stepping onto stages in front of thousands of groups in 49 of our 50 states (come on Alaska, hire her!). She is also an established comedy writer who has sold material to everyone on the planet from Jay Leno’s Tonight Show monologue to guests on the Jerry Springer Show (my parents are proud!).

How to Create Quick Humor to Connect with Clients, Coworkers & Staff,” and “Convention Comedian: Stories and Wisdome from Two Decades of Chicken Dinners and Comedy Clubs.” This is her first attempt at a one-person play, so it might suck. Or not. But come out and see what she comes up with. We’ll have a good time whichever way the review bounces!
