Hi. I'm Erin. I spent half my childhood in Brooklyn and the other half in Plano, Texas, and I somehow grew up to be a plus-sized bisexual nightclub entertainer who also writes literary fiction.
Earlier this millennium, I started doing stand-up at the best comedy club in the world: the Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Since then, I've appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing (2014), on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham (2008), and at lots of festivals, including Women in Comedy, Bridgetown, Boston, and Laugh Your Asheville Off, as well as Eugene Mirman's eponymous one. I've told jokes at clubs, on boats, at colleges, and in Europe, and I've traveled to more than 40 North American cities with the Pink Collar Tour. My first comedy album, So Many Choices, was released by Rooftop in 2012. I love performing stand-up, creating characters, doing voiceover, acting, producing shows, and collaborating with my hilarious friends.
And I love to write. My debut novel, Vow of Celibacy, is now available for pre-order and will be released by Rare Bird Books on August 9th. My words have also appeared in VanityFair.com, Salon, Thought Catalog, and on my blog at so make it up. And I've written for the stage with The Meaning of Wife, which got four stars from Time Out New York, and as a contributor to Wake Up World!, Lizz Winstead's satirical off-Broadway show.
I talk and write about queerness, sexuality, body image, culture, and my life. I love words, ideas, mysticism, humans, justice, love, friendship, art, and Andrew Molera State Park. I live in Los Angeles. I believe #BlackLivesMatter, misogyny hurts everyone, and pizza is a human right. If you want more me, we should connect on social media.
Thank you so much for visiting.
