Hi! I’m Karen and I’m a comedy writer/performer living in New York. I contribute regularly to The New Yorker, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Reductress, and elsewhere. 

I recently graduated from college, where I was a member of the improv troupe The Immediate Gratification Players and the Signet Society. At school I directed shows with the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club, including SKETCH, the school's annual sketch comedy show which I founded. I also had the honor of directing SHE, an original musical at the American Repertory Theater's OBERON.

I also hosted/emceed shows on campus. Highlights include: Cultural Rhythms for the Harvard Foundation with actress Viola Davis, Expressions Dance Company performances, and alt-comedy shows like The Other Comedy Show (feat. comedians of color) and LMAO (feat. all of the school's comedy groups). Email me if you'd like a full list!

Feel free to reach out if you wanna talk comedy or writing or just be friends!
