Hi! I’m Karen and I’m a comedy writer/performer living in the Boston area. I’m currently a senior at Harvard, where I'm a member of the improv troupe The Immediate Gratification Players and the Signet Society. I also contribute to The New Yorker, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Reductress, and elsewhere.
At school I direct shows with the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club, including SKETCH, the school's annual sketch comedy show which I founded. Last year I had the honor of directing SHE, an original musical at the American Repertory Theater's OBERON.
I also regularly host/emcee 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 Ladies Please (feat. women-identifying comedians). 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!
