Comedy writer, activist, weirdo.
Katie Schwartz is a comedy writer, producer, essayist and satirist, among other writerly things. A vintage tchoch collecting, novice knitting feminist and activist.
Her latest web-series, a Homeland spoof comedy that she co-created and co-wrote was executive produced by FKR.TV and was also being distributed on SnagFilms.com and made the homepage of ThunderShorts.com and Nerdist.
Katie was a weekly contributor at Monkeybicycle Literary Goodness, where she opined or whined? about being a magnet for the surreal. Katie’s column, I Don’t Drink Nearly As Much As I Should, was a memoir-ish account of her ongoing grand debacles can be found on the HuffingtonPost. Schwartz also wrote for Heeb Magazine.
Schwartz produced and directed, the short film, THE PENIS FILES, which debuted on A Is For (an organization near and dear to her heart), Queerty, Fark and Mock Paper Scissors, in addition to others.
Katie’s micro-political series, ROMNEGGEDON made its way to another fave, Bitch Magazine.
Schwartz created the original comedy series, YOU’RE THINKING OF SOMEONE ELSE (YTOSE), a semi-autobiographical comedy about things many women would rather not admit to. YTOSE can be seen on FunnyOrDie.com, ComeDiva.com, DailyMotion.com and Schwartz’s YouTube Channel.
Katie began writing performing stand-up comedy, which is ironic considering her acute stage fright. She performed at Stand Up New York, New York Comedy Club, Boston Comedy Club, The Comedy Store and several other clubs that were kind enough to allow her to vomit all things neurotic.
Many of her essays have debuted at Comedy Central’s Sit-n-Spin Writer’s Series (and she is so very grateful for that).
