About the Author
Jeremy started stand-up comedy in 1999 in San Francisco where she built up her chops and tore down her self-esteem nightly on stage. She decided that if she had to work somewhere during the day for 8 hours to pay her rent and possibly eat before she 'hits it big' as a Jeremy Beth Michaels started performing stand-up comedy in San Franciso 1999, where she built up her chops and tore down her self-esteem on stage nightly. She ultimately decided that if she had to work 40 hours a week to pay her rent and possibly eat before she 'hit it big' as a comedian, it better be around pretty stuff like perfume, lipstick, bronzer, and eye shadow. She began her makeup career the same year she started stand-up, when she took a job in the customer service call center at Sephora.com. Soon she'd learned about every high-end line in existence at the time, whether it be a makeup (color) brand, fragrance, or skincare item. There she built up her vast beauty knowledge, all while slinging jokes at the local comedy clubs and broken-down coffee shops. In 2002, she took the plunge and took her hilarityand her makeup bagto Los Angeles. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2013, she realized she needed to take a break from being on the stage while she healed and got her strength back. What she found is that she wasn't the only one that wanted to feel pretty during times of duress and like most people, she wanted to try to keep the humor in her life even while going through something life-changing. Beauty has always been her refuge and there's nothing that makes a person feel better than looking their best. She wanted to pass on her extensive beauty knowledge with a humorous slant. She has been on the Tonight Show for 30 long seconds, featured in the San Jose Mercury News, and had the pleasure of warming up the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose two years in a row. She has been a content contributor for Moronlife.com, Daily Ovation, and Preen.me. She has been published in The Comedy Thesaurus by Judy Brown, alongside Dave Chappelle, Tina Fey, and many others. She toured with "Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad". She has produced many comedy shows under the names Comic Fusion, Audible Candy and La Vida Joqua in San Francisco and Los Angeles. She is currently co-producing Unholy Comedy at The Pig and Whistle in Los Angeles on the second Thursday of every month.
