Ft. Tim McIntire and Carolyn Riley.

Laurie Kilmartin is a stand up comedian, late night writer and New York Times bestselling author.  Laurie
has performed standup on CONAN, Jimmy Kimmel Live and numerous shows on Comedy Central. Her
Seeso special, 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad, made Vulture’s Top Ten Comedy Specials of 2016, as well
as Paste, Splitsider, Interrobang and The Decider. The New York Times pointed to, "sharply written one-
liners captured the pain and frustration of caring for a dying loved one." Paste Magazine called it
"hilarious... brutal, and cathartic" and Interrobang called it "innovative... twisted and dark.“  Before
joining the writing staff at CONAN (2009 to present), Laurie was a staff writer on The Late Late Show
with Craig Ferguson, Too Late with Adam Carolla and Tough Crown with Colin Quinn. In 2012, Laurie
wrote the New York Times bestseller Sh*tty Mom, a parenting book that Time Magazine called
“criminally funny.”  Laurie has performed at the Edinburgh, Montreal, Bridgetown and Moontower
comedy festivals. She's also done shows for the troops in Iraq, Qatar, Kuwait and Diego Garcia.  Her
podcast with comedian Jackie Kashian, The Jackie and Laurie Show, is big with young comedians and
middle aged men. Laurie lives in New York and LA.
