Bonnie McFarlane Stand-Up Comedy Show
with special guest Cassandra Dee and hosted by Jillian Markowitz
Cassandra Dee is a stand-up comedian, writer, and ardent self-deprecator from the suburbs of Philadelphia. Her material—which deals with subjects like bullying, depression, and suicide—is often described as “brave” and “dark” and “a cause for concern” by audiences members. She performs her distinctive brand of dark comedy all over the area at venues like Good Good Comedy Theatre, Punch Line Philly, and Helium Comedy Club, where she won the title of Philly’s Phunniest person in 2018.
Jillian Markowitz is a comedian and singer based in Philadelphia. After studying at Second City in Chicago, Jillian attended and failed out of clown school, in what will forever be her life’s greatest metaphor. She regularly hosts and co-produces several shows in the greater Philadelphia area, including: Sofar Sounds Comedy, BalletX Young Xers Night at the Wilma Theatre, and Grin and Beer It at Earth Bread & Brewery. Jillian can also be found doing stand up at Punch Line Philly and Good Good Comedy Theatre, performing cabaret shows at retirement homes with Open Hearts On Tour, or re-watching Mad Men with her excellent tortoise shell cat.
