CORINNE FISHER is a stand-up comedian, writer & actor originally from Union, NJ. She first made a splash with her debut one-woman show Corinne Fisher: I STALK YOU (Dir. David Crabb) which had a run at The Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) in the Summer of 2010 and was featured in Time Out New York. Since then, she has been a regular on the stand-up scene playing anything from dive bars to world-famous comedy clubs like Stand Up NY, Caroline’s, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Broadway Comedy Club, Comix & Gotham. Her second stage show, Almost Former Reality TV Stars, had a run at The PIT in June 2011 and told the true (albeit slightly exaggerated) story of how CORINNE and her real-life best friend, actor/model THOMAS WHITFIELD, were hired, then fired from their very own reality TV show.
Known as @PhilanthropyGal on Twitter (slightly tongue-in-cheek…), in 2012 CORINNE performed in a series of benefit shows for the AFGHAN WOMEN’S WRITING PROJECT alongside other female New York comedians including SNL alum RACHEL DRATCH. CORINNE is also 1/2 of SORRY ABOUT LAST NIGHT…, her comedy writing and performance duo with KRYSTYNA HUTCHINSON. In December 2013, the duo launched Guys We Fucked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast that now boasts almost half a million subscribers and has been featured in The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast. Previously, they wrote and starred in a self-titled sketch show that debuted at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC in the Spring of 2013 (Dir. Jon Bershad) and co-hosted a popular underground comedy variety show of the same name that has had homes at the Brooklyn Winery, The PIT and originated at Gotham City Improv. The show was like the best college keg party you’ve ever been to and featured comedy darlings such as HANNIBAL BURESS, KEVIN MEANEY, MARK NORMAND, PAT DIXON, BIG JAY OAKERSON & KURT METZGER as well as cult folk-rock sensation DAN BERN.
CORINNE tours the college circuit regularly with seasoned comics like JIMMY FAILLA, RYAN REISS, BEN HAGUE, MARTIN MONTANA, ORLANDO BAXTER & TOM KELLY. She has opened for headliner COLIN KANE at Bananas Comedy Club in NJ and HARRISON GREENBAUM at Caroline’s on Broadway in New York City.
CORINNE holds a BFA in Film & Video from the School of Visual Arts and is a graduate of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre’s prestigious improvisation training program. She loves ice cream and the Spice Girls.
