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 and every Tuesday at Baby Grand, also in Brooklyn lol. 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.
