I perform darkly absurd stand-up comedy in clubs, conference rooms and crawl spaces internationally. Always looking to surprise and challenge myself, I thrive on doing comedy that verges on performance art. My style has been described (by me) as, "self-deprecating Third-wave Feminism." I sometimes perform in-character as Awkward Pauzez the Digital Comic - a very confessional comedian who delivers jokes with pre-recorded punchlines - or as the even more tragic Carrot Bottom: A Prop Comic.
In 2017, I was a featured performer with (Adult Swim's) Wham City Comedy on their USA tour, performing as America Lady - a hopelessly out of touch middle-aged woman attempting to do cutting-edge political comedy. I have had the honor to open for national headliners, such as Rhea Butcher, Gary Gulman and Michael Ian Black, as well as appear at comedy festivals across the country. I am a co-organizer of the Freeze Peach Comedy Series, which features women, poc, lgbtq and other under-represented comics and performers. I am currently in production on recording a half-hour comedy special for release in 2019.
