Laura is a writer/performer from the Second City Chicago, who moved to New York to fulfill her dream of living in a place with the highest concentration of cute dogs per square foot of sidewalk. An avid improvisor and sketch comedian, Laura travelled the country as a correspondent for Comedy Central’s “The Opposition,” co-created "Fairies" for IFC's Comedy Crib, and served as head writer for “Jordan Klepper Solves Guns” (don’t worry, they're totally solved.) Laura's short films have premiered at Slamdance, SXSW, and Tribeca Film Festivals, and her spooky animated rom-com “Ex-GirlFIEND” is currently running on FXX and Hulu's "Cake."
With co-writer Megan Stein, she sold “House of Delta,” a political thriller set in a southern sorority, to Universal Cable Productions, and founded LASH, an all-female sketch team for UCB Digital.
As an actor, she's appeared in "Seriously Distracted" opposite Amy Sedaris, and has done a bunch of other film, commercial, and VO stuff to feed her raging addiction to paying the bills. In a past life, she graduated from Northwestern with a major in poetry, taught in Chicago Public Schools, served as the artistic director for a not -for-profit, and still dreams of one day meeting a werewolf.
