Turtle Canyon Comedy was set up with the express purpose of “providing artists a way for them to demonstrate what makes them funny and unique as individuals, without imposing limitations that hamper their creativity.” We work with people we like, and find funny, and trust them to create something we’re all proud of.

THE MIKE & JEN SHOW SEASON 1
The Mike & Jen show, the Seattle based comedy web series debuted on October 3rd with its first episode, titled “The Roommate”. The series follows two roommates as they attempt to craft their own weekly podcast.

The Mike & Jen show was created by Gregory Harbin and stars Devin Badoo (The Humor Program) and Victoria Ramon.
