Chelsea is currently in NYC writing on The Opposition on Comedy Central. Prior to that she wrote for Jon Stewart’s untitled HBO project.
She is an alum of the Second City Mainstage where she wrote and performed the show, Fool Me Twice, Deja Vu, and the press called her “An even more fearless version of Tina Fey who could totally out drink you and kick your ass“ and “The Michael Jordan of the bunch.“ She also wrote and performed the Jeff-Nominated revues, Panic on Cloud 9 and Depraved New World, and the press quotes from those shows are not as cool.
She has two pilots in development with production companies. She also co-created and wrote the hit web series, Modern Women on The Second City Network, as well as the pilot, Stupid Bitch Syndrome, which was a finalist at The 2013 New York Television Festival. She is a member of the sketch group, It’s Megan, whose pilot was featured at the 2015 New York Television Festival. Her sketch videos have been featured on the Huffington Post and the front page of Funny or Die.
She toured with The Second City’s RedCo, Improvised with The Second City’s Improv Allstars, and once performed on a cruise-ship for four months. She studied comedy at The Upright Citizens Brigade, i.O., The Annoyance, and The Comedy Studies Program through Columbia College. She studied International Relations at The United World College where she received an International Baccalaureate. After that she somehow enrolled in dramatic acting at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and she now spends her time regretting taking out thousands of dollars in loans.
In her free time she writes material for Saddam Hussein’s U.S. Army doctor, Dr. Bose. She also performs as a Drag Queen (yes, cis-ladies can be Drag Queens) and won Berlin Nightclub’s Crash Landing Drag Queen Competition in Chicago. She grew up all over the Southwest, but has called New Mexico home for the past fifteen years.
Chelsea is managed by Principato Young Entertainment and represented by APA for lit.
