Hi! I’m Karen and I’m a Brooklyn-based comedian and writer for Late Night with Seth Meyers.

I do lotsa different comedy things! My TV writing credits include the 2019 Golden Globe Awards and the upcoming Reductress pilot on Comedy Central. I also contribute regularly to The New Yorker and have been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, McSweeney’s, and more. As a comedian, I do stand-up all around town (UCB, The Bell House, Caroline’s, etc), perform with the sketch group Lo-Fi, and co-host monthly shows ‘Decolonize Your Mind’ at Union Hall and ‘The Biodiversity Jam’ at Caveat. When I’m not working, I spend my free time reading about history, walking across bridges, and muttering, “Wait, where am I?” as needed.

If you wanna know more about me, I was recently profiled by Forbes, interviewed by Vulture, and featured in Variety. It was very nice of them to do this and I am grateful!
