Write, produce, and perform on this live variety show at The Hollywood Improv with partner Vanessa Ragland. The show features a live soul/jazz house band, and has had special guests including Louis CK, Aziz Ansari, Craig Robinson, Tig Notaro, Jeff Ross, Nick Kroll, and more. VanJam also had a short-lived but evergreen podcast run that I am convinced will be resurrected at some point in time.
