I'm a 27 year old girl in the northwest of the USA who is quite a bit obsessed with the world of British comed. Aside from British comedy I enjoy sci fi, have degrees in Analytic Philosophy and Gerontology, and do a lot of art. I'm just looking for people to talk to who might share some of my interests. I am also determined to permanently sneak (hopefully legally) into the UK for good. Until then I plan to make yearly pilgrimages to the Edinburgh Fringe. My interests are somewhat limited by what I can access from the US, but here are a few of the things/people/shows I adore:

...and more.

I like being involved in the comedy world in as involved a way as possible. I am ever seeking more involvement. If you have a way to involve me, please let me know, as I would like to get more involved. This could be reading things you've written, writing reviews, teaming up on a writing project, doing art for you, or...whatever! If you have an idea, run it by me. I'll give it due consideration.

I don't know anything about American Comedy, despite being American, so don't ask. But if you know of any that's good, I'd love to hear about it, because it's quite boring here at the moment as far as live comedy goes.

If you have any recommendations or want a new comedy friend, send me a message or an email. My email is davidajg@gmail.com
