Emily Duke is a born and raised, holier-than-thou New Yorker. Strangers call her hilarious. Friends call her endearing and tiresome. Dearest friends call her completely insufferable.
Emily is a nationally touring stand-up comic, seen at Comedy Cellar, Caroline’s, Ice House, Flappers and UCB. At home, she produces and hosts Canal Yards Project, a monthly stand-up show sponsored by Bust Magazine featuring performers like Phoebe Robinson and Aparna Nancherla.
Behind the spotlight, Emily is a writer for Portland’s Late Night Special at The Curious Comedy Theater, and has been published by Points in Case, Slackjaw and others. Her original pilot, Middle Gentry, follows a pair of WASPy sisters as they travel to the 19th century and try to dismantle systemic privilege.
Emily loves carbohydrates and feels cosmically connected to Bette Midler.
