Janet Varney

Janet Varney


Janet Varney is an Emmy-Nominated actor, comedian, writer and producer. In the animation world, she is lucky enough to be the award-winning voice of Korra on Nickelodeon’s critically-acclaimed standout hit The Legend of Korra, a role for which she continues to be invited to comic cons to give sweaty handshakes the world over.

She can currently be seen as the entitled and bitchy Becca on FXX’s You’re the Worst (consistently named as one of TV’s best current comedies), as wine-loving Denie in Christy Stratton Mann’s Everyone’s Crazy But Us, as Melina on Seeso’s Take My Wife, and recurring as her semi-snarky self on @midnight With Chris Hardwick. And beginning November 2nd, she can be seen fighting dark forces opposite John C. McGinley on indie darling IFC, in their new horror-comedy from Dana Gould, Stan Against Evil.

Janet spent seven wonderful years hosting TBS’s Dinner and a Movie and was a series regular on the beloved E! and Yahoo series Burning Love seasons 1 and 3. She recurred on HBO’s Entourage and showed up on hits like How I Met Your Mother, American Housewife, Maron, Shameless, Key and Peele, Kroll Show, Psych, Childrens Hospital, Bones, and Chelsea Lately. She also appeared in films such as Still Waiting, Drillbit Taylor, and Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer (sporting maybe her weirdest movie hair to date). She also launched, produced and co-hosted for HuffPost Live, the Huffington Post’s news and conversation television network.
