Janet Varney

Janet Varney is an Emmy-Nominated actor, comedian, writer and producer. In the animation world, she is lucky enough to be the award-winning voice of Korra on Nickelodeon’s critically-acclaimed standout hit "The Legend of Korra," a role for which she continues to be invited to comic cons to give sweaty handshakes the world over.

She can currently be seen fighting dark forces opposite John C. McGinley on indie darling IFC, in their horror-comedy from Dana Gould, "Stan Against Evil," and as the entitled and bitchy Becca on FXX’s "You’re the Worst" (consistently named as one of TV’s best current comedies).

Janet is a regular performer on Paul F. Tompkins’ Spontaneanation podcast in addition to hosting her own podcast, Nerdist Network’s popular The JV Club with Janet Varney, where she interviews celebrities about their awkward teenage years.

Onstage, Janet performs with Rachel Dratch, John Michael Higgins, Michael Hitchcock, Oscar Nunez and more in their improv supergroup Theme Park, and is a WorkJuice Player for the beloved Thrilling Adventure Hour. She is a writer/performer for Rifftrax with Mystery Science Theatre 3000’s Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy, and can be seen on Geek & Sundry’s "Escape!" which she hosts and produces.

On the development and production side, Janet co-created, co-wrote and co- produced "Neil’s Puppet Dreams," a series featuring Neil Patrick Harris and his puppet-filled dreams. She co-programs comedy for Outside Lands music festival and is co-founder/creative director/producer of one of the largest and most acclaimed comedy festivals in North America, SF Sketchfest: the San Francisco Comedy Festival, now in its 16th year.

Janet spent seven wonderful years hosting TBS's "Dinner and a Movie" and was a series regular on the beloved E! and Yahoo series "Burning Love" seasons 1 and 3. She recurred on HBO's "Entourage" and showed up on hits like "How I Met Your Mother," "American Housewife," "Maron," "Shameless," "Key and Peele," "Kroll Show," "Psych," "Childrens Hospital," "Bones," and "Chelsea Lately." She also appeared in films such as "Still Waiting," "Drillbit Taylor," and "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" (sporting maybe her weirdest movie hair to date). She also launched, produced and co-hosted for HuffPost Live, the Huffington Post’s news and conversation television network.
