Her original online content has amassed more than 165 million views. In 2014, she was nominated for a Webby for her short Ã¢Â€ÂœSympathy for Slender Man,Ã¢Â€Â but lost to Chipotle because they have a lot of money. Her UCB sketch group, The Midnight Show, was singled out as an "act to watch in 2014" by LA Weekly. Additionally, her TMS video "Drive Recklessly," was nominated for Best Original Viral Sketch by Comedy Central in 2012. The Midnight Show was a finalist in the Friars' Club National Sketch Comedy Contest, called, "a [sketch group] that should be on television," by Laughspin, and named, "Kings of Dot Comedy," by G4. Their album, "Wow, Whaddya Know!?" is available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. Along with partner Miles Stroth, she holds the UCB LA Cagematch record, performing undefeated from 2011-2013 in Heather & Miles. Want to see her perform? On Thursday nights, she's on stage with Last Day of School in the TXT MSG SHW, which LA Weekly called the Best of LA in 2009 and again in 2013. ItÃ¢Â€Â™s the Heather began improvising at Improv Olympic, in Chicago, at the age of 15. As one of Del Close's students, she completed her work in the Windy City as the youngest member of Close's final production, Spoo -- which toured to the Austin Comedy Festival. She left Chicago before she was legally allowed to drink in the very theatre/bar she performed in nightly. A four-year member of Northwestern University's The Mee-Ow Show, she was hired by Boom Chicago in Amsterdam, and spent three years abroad until moving to Los Angeles in 2005. Soon after, Heather was selected for The Groundlings Sunday Company, while simultaneously performing at UCB, IOWest, and Ultimate Improv. Time Magazine interviewed her in late 2013, but it was mostly unrelated to all of the above. When she's not working, she's playing video-games.
