Mary Van Note is a stand-up comedienne of the weird variety. She performs at colleges, clubs and festivals across the country and she is the creator and star of the award winning Independent Film Channel web series The Mary Van Note Show: Gavin Really Wants Me. The San Francisco Bay Guardian called her a “Zine-Queen Comedian” as she regularly makes zines, crafts and mini-comics. Her specialties are stick-figures and cross-stitch.
“A Gracie Allen for the new millennium, Van Note’s comedic styling is truly unique, as she combines elements of raunchy slapstick with charmingly innocent self-deprecation.” - Flypmedia.com
“Kaufman-esque.” - Jesse Thorn of The Sound of Young America
“Van Note’s film shorts reminded us of Andy Samberg’s digital shorts for SNL, but darker. Like all good comedians, she makes us laugh by being brutally honest. She’s crude and vulnerable at the same time. And she’s hella funny.” - SF Weekly
