Writer, Performer, Director, Producer


Nominated for a Writers Guild Award for the online series West 40s and called “one of the city’s great comedic storytellers” by Time Out New York, I'm a staff writer/producer for Comedy Central. I'm also a writer/performer with several plays and solo shows to my credit, including my one-man off-Broadway productions Blanche Survives Katrina in a FEMA Trailer Named Desire and I Light Up My Life: The Mark Sam Celebrity Autobiography. I have performed improv comedy with the Upright Citizens Brigade and People’s Improv Theater and performed for two years with the New York company of Point Break Live! 

I am a graduate of Northwestern University and a seventh-generation Baton Rougean. My greatest comic inspirations are my mother, grandmother, and all the ladies of the Baton Rouge Junior League.
