Spotlight: Jamie Lee is one of the great young voices in the comedy world, writing for and starring in shows on MTV, truTV, TBS, and HBO. (Most recently she's been a writer/producer on the hit show "Ted Lasso," and before that she played Ali on the hote HBO series "Crashing.") She's even a best-selling author -- the last time she came to the DC Improv was part of her "Weddiculous" book tour, and that project was even spun off into a Netflix series called "The Wedding Coach." She's back this winter for another run of outstanding shows.
