Feminist. Writer. Urban Witch. Weed Queen.
Erin Gibson is an expert at mixing social commentary, political satire, and frank sexual talk into nice, neat little comedy packages. Based in Los Angeles, she co-hosts the award winning political absurdist comedy podcast "Throwing Shade”, which has over 6 million downloads and was named by Rolling Stone as one of the top 20 Comedy Podcasts of 2014 and as a 2015 Podacast to listen to by Entertainment Weekly. A web version of the podcast is shot and distributed by Funny or Die, who is also producing the Throwing Shade television series. She tours internationally doing live versions of the show with her comedy partner, Bryan Safi.
Previously, Erin hosted ”Modern Lady” on Current TV’s Infomania, which comedically criticized the way women are treated by the media.
As a writer and director at Funny or Die, Erin regularly impersonated Michele Bachmann and Megyn Kelly, in addition to writing and directing sketches staring Juliette Lewis, Jerry O’Connell, Teri Hatcher, Mary Steenburgen, Kaley Cuoco, Natasha Lyonne, and Taryn Manning. Erin created the successful “Game of Thrones” recap show “Gay of Thrones” which she writes and directs, and who stars her real life hair stylist, Jonathan Van Ness.
As an actress and comedian, she’s been seen on Key and Peele, The Kroll Show, Parks and Rec, Chelsea Lately, Community, and clip shows galore. Erin's a regular blogger for Huffington Post and is better than Taylor Swift when knowing if people are trouble when they walk in.
