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.” In 2017 Wolf debuted her first hour-long stand-up special, “Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady”, on HBO for which she received rave reviews and a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing For A Variety Special.
As with her HBO special, Wolf steers clear of politics in her current show; instead focusing on social commentary, race and gender issues which she tackles through her unique comedic voice and her uncanny ability to find humor in the most unpredictable ways; often leading to boundaries being pushed to hilarious results.
Wolf recently served as the executive producer, writer, and host of the critically-acclaimed variety sketch series “The Break with Michelle Wolf” on Netflix. In 2018, she made international headlines as the much buzzed-about headliner of the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner. Wolf’s other television credits include being an on-air contributor and writer for “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” and a writing supervisor and performer on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
