Laurie Kilmartin

Laurie Kilmartin is a stand up comedian, late night writer and New York Times bestselling author. Laurie has performed standup on "CONAN," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and numerous shows on Comedy Central. Her Seeso special, "45 Jokes About My Dead Dad," made Vulture’s Top Ten Comedy Specials of 2016, as well as Paste, Splitsider, Interrobang and The Decider. The New York Times pointed to, "sharply written one-liners captured the pain and frustration of caring for a dying loved one." Paste Magazine called it "hilarious... brutal, and cathartic" and Interrobang called it "innovative... twisted and dark.“ Before joining the writing staff at "CONAN" (2009 to present), Laurie was a staff writer on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," "Too Late with Adam Carolla" and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn." In 2012, Laurie wrote the New York Times bestseller "Sh*tty Mom," a parenting book that Time Magazine called “criminally funny.” Laurie has performed at the Edinburgh, Montreal, Bridgetown and Moontower comedy festivals. She's also done shows for the troops in Iraq, Qatar, Kuwait and Diego Garcia. Her podcast with comedian Jackie Kashian, "The Jackie and Laurie Show," is big with young comedians and middle aged men. Laurie lives in New York and LA.
