    Comedy Writer with Journalism experience

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    I'm a comedy writer from New Jersey (I wish that was a joke), with a background in journalism -- an observational humorist. I'm fluent in absurdism and adept at sketch comedy, satire and Twitter. My comedy training is diligent and my experience diverse. I've studied journalism and media studies at Rutgers University and sketch comedy writing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York. I currently write for one of the theater's house sketch teams, (212). I've written (and punched up) stand-up material, one-liners and humor essays, created content for and marketed an app (or three), beta-tested a parody news website, scripted an animated series, copywritten greeting cards, and won a pun-off. I'm seeking new opportunities to craft the perfect punchline. Or whatever it is you need. I treat all senses of humor equally; except the bad ones.
