After years of writing about comedy for The Interrobang, Splitsider, and her own website, I decided to take to the stage – on the nudge of a dare set for me by my podcast co-hosts. Five years later, I’ve appeared at the Black Women in Comedy Festival and the Comics Rising Festival, perform around New England (before the pandemic) and in my living room and bedroom (during it), and appear as a recurring panelist on The Great Pop Culture Debate podcast.

I’m a co-host of the Rough Draft Open Mic, a monthly mic in Somerville, MA dedicated to “FOD-ball” comedians (or those who are typically the ‘first, only, or different’ of their kind on comedy lineups), and as of January 2022 am hosting Pantry Raid, a weekly online comedy show that allows comedians to share their favorite jokes – and their strongest food-based opinions.
