Jess Varley

Jess Varley began her career in her hometown of New York City at age 16, guest starring on shows like Law and Order, where she played opposite Jesse McCartney as a pregnant teen determined to destroy the world around her. Her career was flourishing by the time she finished high school, but she vowed to continue her education at NYU, ironically paying her acting school tuition using the money she made as a professional actress.

It was at NYU where she met her future writing partner Ester Steinberg, a stand-up comedienne from Tampa. Varley slowly began to transition her focus from acting to comedy, and a year after graduation, she moved to Los Angeles to become a comedy writer.
