Janet Silverman is a Los Angeles based actor, writer, & producer.
Fresh off her move from Brooklyn, Janet can now be spotted on the left coast drinking green juice, buying too many houseplants, and avoiding the freeway at all costs. (Have you seen this thing? There are, like, 25 lanes!)
Janet spent much of her impressionable youth studying improv and sketch comedy all over NYC at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Peoples Improv Theater, and the Magnet. She hopes to someday prove to her parents that it's all been worth something. Financially. Specifically, worth something financially.
In 2019, Janet’s pilot, “Agent M.O.M.,” was a semi-finalist in Showtime's Tony Cox Episodic Screenplay (30 Min) Competition and the Stage 32 Comedy Writing Contest. Janet was a quarterfinalist for NBC’s Writers on the Verge and the ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship.
Janet’s pilot, "Coupled," was a 2018 finalist in SeriesFest's "Storytellers Initiative" and a semi-finalist in both Showtime's Tony Cox Episodic Screenplay (30 Min) Competition and the Barnstorm Film+TV Script Fest. She was also a finalist for the 2018 WB Writers’ Workshop.
A Maude Night veteran, Janet wrote for UCB house sketch team Nipsey and was recently seen on stage in the 2-woman show Urgent Care. She can be found in various videos floating around the interwebs for the rest of all time.
