I write, perform, and direct at the Upright Citzens' Brigade Theater in Los Angeles, and formerly New York.

I have written for SNL's Weekend Update, The Onion News Network, and the shows Epic How To, Honest Trailers, Honest Game Trailers, Blissful Thinking, and others.

My writing has appeared in McSweeny's, College Humor, Splitsider, Trop Magazine, and others.

I run the humor magazine Janice, which has put out two print issues and occasionally updates with online content.

Currently, at UCB, I host the experimental comedy variety show Cool Shit Weird Shit.

I used to have a comedy podcast called Lifescrapers: Tall Stories of American Lives. You can listen to the archives.
