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. She has been featured in The NYTimes, NewNowNext and Bust Magazine.
Emily is a nationally touring stand-up comic, seen at Comedy Cellar, Caroline’s, Gotham Comedy Club, The Comedy Store, Ice House, Flappers and UCB. At home, she produces and hosts Canal Yards Project, a bi-monthly stand-up showcase sponsored by Bust Magazine featuring performers like Phoebe Robinson, Julio Torres, Jo Firestone and Aparna Nancherla.
Emily co-created, cowrites and costars in the WebFest selection Garbage People with Season Two premiering on Bust. Behind the scenes, she was selected as a finalist for NBC’s Writers on the Verge program in 2019, and her satirical writing has been published by Points in Case, Slackjaw and others.
Emily loves carbohydrates and feels cosmically connected to Bette Midler.
