COURTNEY RUNDELL is a stand-up comedian, writer and carrot-eater.fullsizerender-jpg

Normally, I’d keep writing about myself in third person to make this come off like it was written by some super fancy publicist, but after almost dying a few times, I have very little room for bullshitting in my life anymore.

I started writing creatively when I was eight and fell in love. Poetry was my gateway drug, which led to playwriting, blogging, copywriting and finally stand-up comedy.

The rest of a standard bio usually looks like a rich person asking for a bank loan, but I’ll spare you the mundane.

Here’s some cool stuff I’ve done:

  • BFA in Acting – UNR (yeah, Reno). I was a well-known stage actress. In. Reno.
  • Starred in a handful of horrible B-movies.
  • MA in Playwriting – UCSB (yeah, playwriting, I know).
  • Award-winning playwright. Productions in California and Nevada.
  • Short film produced.
  • Feature film optioned for five years.
  • Published blogs at WebMD, Below the Fold Mag and several others .
  • Copy in US Weekly, Redbook and Shape Magazine.
  • Panelist on Nickelodeon’s “Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor.
  • Stand-up at The Comedy Store, Flappers and almost every dive bar in the San Fernando Valley.

I live in Los Angeles with my cute husband and our super rad kid. Most importantly, carrots are my favorite vegetable and sharing is caring.

From MTV to LSD, from Madonna to Bauhaus, from little girl to drug addict, coming-of-age in Reno in the 1980’s was damned fun until is wasn’t.
