Originally from Rochester, New York, Abby is a Fulbright scholar and documentarian-turned comedian, writer, producer. She co-wrote and currently stars in the bilingual mockumentary series ‘Gringolandia’ on Netflix.
Abby won a 2016 Telly Award as a correspondent on the comedy news show ‘Redacted Tonight’ on RT and recently returned to NYC after performing stand up on TV in Argentina and Chile. Abby just released the first episode of her new series ‘Ovulady’ and can be found performing comedy around NYC.
Abby hopes to use humor and truth to open audiences’ eyes to the major political and cultural issues of today without making them want to kill themselves. Her goal in a nutshell: to create comedy so good it prevents suicides.
