Jaqi Furback

I am a stand-up comedian, writer, actor, and general creator based in NYC.

My jokes are personal, based on experiences from my own life. My belief in comedy is: I don’t f*ck with others unless they f*ck with me first.

The stories I write focus on empowering women and refuting the toxic co-dependency I learned as a latchkey kid a full cable package and five movie channels. It took me decades to understand that I was more than a two-dimensional character in a man’s life. I want to help girls find that truth younger than I did.

I studied acting with both Marymount Manhattan’s BFA Acting program, as well as Cornish College of the Arts. I studied improv with Jet City Improv in Seattle, and more recently at Upright Citizens Brigade NY.

Since my inception in standup, I’ve played every gig you could imagine: from the comedy clubs of NYC to a child’s fort built on AstroTurf in a Puppet Clothing Supply Store on a back road in Washington State.

I’ve been featured in the Huffington Post, Funny or Die, Vh1’s Big Morning Buzz, & Seattle’s King 5 Evening Magazine. I was a co-founder and co-host of the “Whoremones Podcast,” which consistently ranked in the top 10 in the sexuality category of iTunes during my tenure.

My first short film “i am okay,” is currently in production. My first novella will be released in 2019 as well.

I also have a “horror film scream,” so if you know how I can make that lucrative– let’s effing do it.

In the time I’ve pursued performance opportunities that are consistent with the stories I want to offer the world, I have also worked as a bartender. With over a decade behind a bar, I have a strong grasp of flavor balancing, which has led me into the process of bitter-making. I create personalized bitters for home bars of clients based on their favorite flavor profiles.
