Michelle Wolf has quickly become one of the most influential voices in the comedy landscape with the Village Voice calling her “the voice comedy needs right now” and The Daily Beast declaring, “Michelle Wolf is the future of stand-up comedy.” Most recently, Wolf released her second hour-long stand-up special “Michelle Wolf: Joke Show” on Netflix. Previously, she made international headlines as the much buzzed-about headliner of the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner.
In 2017, Wolf debuted her first hour-long stand-up special, “Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady”, on HBO.
The well-reviewed special tackled a wide range of topics from her surprising thoughts on feminism, the environment and why Hilary Clinton could not be a “nice lady,” and more of life’s everyday absurdities.
She received a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing For A Variety Special.
Wolf created and served as the executive producer, writer, and host of the critically-acclaimed variety sketch series “The Break with Michelle Wolf” on Netflix. Prior to “The Break” Wolf was an on-air contributor and writer for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” and a writing supervisor and performer on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” where she also made her late-night television debut in July 2014. Wolf also wrote on the “88th Academy Awards” hosted by Chris Rock.
Wolf headlines comedy clubs and colleges all over the country and has performed at a number of festivals including Outside Lands, Moontower, Bonnaroo, Just For Laughs Montreal, JFL 42, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Dublin Comedy Festival. In 2016 she completed an incredibly successful first appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a sold out run of her debut hour-long stand-up show “Michelle Wolf: So Brave.” The critically acclaimed show, which earned her a nomination for the Best Newcomer Prize from the Edinburgh Comedy Awards, garnered numerous four-star reviews from top publications such as the Guardian, Herald and Scotsman.
