Katie McCarthy is a Boston-based comedian who will make you delightedly shriek “What?!” She’s peddled her brand of silly-yet-cerebral humor all around the country, impressing audiences at Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, and Scruffy City Comedy Festival. Starting as a sketch writer and actor, Katie has since tackled stand up; her absurd ruminations on personal experiences, pop culture, and politics quickly made her a favorite of Boston’s legendary Comedy Studio, where she served as their Comic In Residence in January 2016. She’s appeared on Nerdist’s Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction podcast three times and can be seen on SeeSo’s Hidden America for like two minutes. She doesn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day or the guarantee of seeing a dog.
