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. 

You can find her doing standup on both coasts at Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Stand Up NY, NY Comedy Club, Ice House, Flappers and UCB.

Emily 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. She is also a writer for Portland’s Late Night Special at The Curious Comedy Theater, and has been published by Points in Case and Slackjaw.

Emily loves carbohydrates and feels cosmically connected to Bette Midler.
