My name is Samantha Ruddy.
I'm a Brooklyn-based stand-up comedian who makes things for the Internet. As a comedian, I pride myself on writing clever, inventive material. I was selected as a performer for the 2014 Women in Comedy Festival as well as the 2015 Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival. Notable comics I've opened for include Tommy Johnagin, Jackie Kashian, and Kurt Metzger.
In 2013, I was a head writer for the award-winning Syracuse University sketch comedy group Humor Whore. While I was in college, I wrote and starred in a comedy video entitled "Boeheimian Rhapsody" that was picked up by some big names including Sports Illustrated, Yahoo! News, Collegehumor, and Lead Off with Doug Gottlieb on CBS Sports.
I also coded, designed, and marketed a website called "Knope Compliments" that received 200,000 hits in just one month.
I recently finished Sketch 201 at the Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center and began writing satirical articles for the website, Reductress, which is a parody of women's magazines.
