Along with comedy partner Joel Jones, Jason’s two-man sketch show, An Evening with Kravits and Jones, took home the Jury Award at the 1999 US Comedy Festival in Aspen, Co. The show was based on material developed with the long-running Rumble in the Red Room collective.
More recently, Jason created and stars in the show, Off the Top!, a “one-man, completely improvised cabaret.” Winner of a 2017 Bistro Award and sleeper hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that same year, the show has played to sold out crowds in London, Adelaide, Melbourne, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, and regularly plays the world-famous Birdland Theater in New York City.
As a writer, Jason penned the 10-minute play Green Eggs and Hamlet, the holiday stories The Kvetch, and Bullwinkle: A Christmoose Story, as well as the acclaimed web-series Lords of the Playground.
