Janet Varney is a comedian and entrepreneur. I believe her most notable achievement was co-founding the SF Sketchfest for which she also serves as its creative director and producer. However, most people will recognize her for co-hosting the TBS series Dinner & A Movie. She is the founder of a podcast on Nerdist called The JV Club and has written and performed several comedic comentary tracks for Rifftrax to films such as Footloose, Ghost, and Jaws 3.

I first noticed Janet in the Yahoo! web series Burning Love, but as it turns out she has had little guest appearances on many of my favorite TV shows including Entourage and How I Met Your Mother. Her latest gig is providing the voice for the title character in The Legend of Korra, Nickelodeon’s sequel to its hit Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon.
