CAROLYN JANIA IS AN ALUMNUS OF THE GROUNDLINGS SUNDAY COMPANY AND CO-CREATOR OF ROCK 'N' ROLL COMEDY CABARET, SCHMABARET! Carolyn Jania grew up in Munster, Indiana even though she tells people she's from Chicago. At age 15, she started studying at Second City Chicago and resumed her studies there after receiving her BA in Theatre from Butler University. She's also an alumnus of UCB's Advanced Study Program and former iO West (RIP) Mainstage Sketch Team writer/ performer. She also enjoys saying, "alumnus." Carolyn is really proud of Schmabaret! which she created with her platonic life partner Adam Ceschin. Their first music video, "Titties and Shoulders," was released April 2018. They are currently recording their second single, "I Wanna Be French." She is also one half of musical comedy duo, Buzz’s Girlfriend (which has over 5 million views on YouTube); and co-creator of Riding Buddies, a fully improvised web series featuring comedians from the LA comedy community. You can also see her in things she didn't create but is still very proud of like Thank You Come Again (2018), The Slutty Years, The Sleepover and Opus.
