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.

Emily co-created, cowrites and costars in the WebFest selection Garbage People with Season Two premiering on Bust. She also hosts and produces the podcast Because We’re On.

Behind the spotlight, Emily 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.
