LIZ GALVAO is a writer and comedy person. Her sense of humor mixes an underdog irreverence with a critical feminist lens on pop culture and the marriage industrial complex.
Liz grew up in northern New Jersey, then studied film at Vassar College and Prague Film School, where she made several short comedic films. After graduating, she studied sketch and improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, and became a part of the comedy scenes in New York and Los Angeles as a writer and performer. She also began making her own comedy videos.
Liz's writing has been published by Reductress, Refinery29, Bitch Magazine, The Hairpin, The Toast, and The Awl, and she was Music Editor of BUST Magazine from 2014-2017. Her blog post "Let's Make Fun Of: Anthropologie Furniture" was a viral hit. Her email newsletter, Weird Personal Emails, was featured on NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour, which called her "funnier and smarter and more interesting than most people in terms of what's on her mind."
Liz wrote and performed with the iO West sketch team June's Cleaver from 2016-2018, creating a new sketch show every month. From 2017-2019, she co-hosted and produced The Bachelor recap podcast My Wife Is In This Room.
Her recent projects have included editing the humor site Funny-ish.com, hosting the live humor reading series Funny on Paper, and writing original half-hour comedy pilots and screenplays. She was a second rounder in the 2019 Austin Film Festival comedy pilot competition, and a semi-finalist for the 2018 Fox Writers Lab and the 2017 Sundance/YouTube New Voices Lab.
Liz lives in Los Angeles with her husband and travels to New York City often. She has a very cute and annoying cat, Zadie.
