Emily lives in Chicago by way of Coldwater, Ohio. The only things she gives up on easily are doing pull-ups and writing in the third person. Everything else I commit to pretty hard. I've written funny things for The Onion, Reductress, McSweeney's, the iO Comedy Network, and Recycled Paper Greetings. I perform improv weekly with iO Harold Team 'First Kiss' as well as around town with indie team 'Uncle Garbage.' I've written and performed sketch comedy at The Second City, iO Theater, The Annoyance Theater, Stage 773, The Public House Theater, Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival and Women's Funny Festival, among others. I volunteer my time doing Bedside Magic with kids at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital with Open Heart Magic. I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Uganda 2012-14) and studied social work at The Ohio State University, so squishy interpersonal stuff is also pretty important to me. Feel free to say hi!
