“Loftus is a singular voice in podcasting: messy yet precise, confident yet conflicted … a model for what a truly independent voice in the medium can sound like.” —Vulture

Drawing comparisons to legends like Andy Kaufman and Maria Bamford, Jamie Loftus’ comedy is “strange but impossible to look away from” (Forbes). Equal parts absurd and intellectual, as in Irrational Fears, a Comedy Central web series born from an exercise with her therapist, Loftus’ output includes the podcasts Ghost ChurchMy Year in Mensa, Aaack Cast, and The Bechdel Cast. Part investigation, part travelog, her book Raw Dog: The Naked Truth About Hot Dogs, invites you to “grab a dog, lay out your picnic blanket, and dig into the delicious and inevitable product of centuries of violence, poverty, and ambition, now rolling around at your local 7-Eleven.”

City Arts & Lectures’ Covid protocol follows San Francisco Department of Public Health guidelines and/or requirements of the featured guests. At this time, masks are encouraged but not required. Policy subject to change.
