Jash (stylized as JASH) is a comedy community and advertising agency created by Michael Cera, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Sarah Silverman and Reggie Watts.[2][3] New videos are posted to the Jash homepage periodically by the creative team, and by new members of the always expanding collective of comics.[4] Jash premiered online March 10, 2013.[5][6][7] Since its launch, Jash has gone on to extend its reach into traditional media with television series and award-winning short films.

"JASH" itself is an acronym that stands for "Just Attitude So Hey".[8]
