comedian and writer
Mary Cella is a stand-up comedian and writer. She hosts a show the first Thursday of every month at Tip Top Bar & Grill in Brooklyn. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Comedy Central, Jezebel, McSweeney's, The Hairpin, CNN and HLN and she's the Co-Founder and Co-Editor of Little Old Lady Comedy. She's originally from Berkshire County, Massachusetts, where she grew up ski racing on a little hill where it was socially acceptable to ski in jeans (but she never did). She graduated from Tufts University, if anyone cares, and worked as a producer for CNN and HLN for several years before pursuing comedy.
