She's a middle-age single woman who is definitely nobody’s mom. She's your best nightmare: a fearless feminist with a sharp sense of irony who will challenge your assumptions about women of a certain age, while still relating to all ages. She's played bars, breweries, bookstores, basements, back yards, buses, and barns, and of course clubs and colleges.

She studied improv at Second City Conservatory, The Annoyance Theater, and ComedySportz.

She moved from Chicago to LA in 2017 and she's now a regular at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank, as a host, performer and Zoom producer. She also produces shows for the world's first virtual comedy club, Nowhere Comedy. She's hosted, showcased, featured, and headlined all over.

Oh and she's competitive. She was in the top 16 of the World Series of Comedy in 2019 and 2020. In May 2019, she won 6th place in the San Diego Comedy Contest. In February 2019, she was a finalist in the U.S. Comedy Competition. In August 2018, she was a finalist in the Clean Comedy Challenge in Carson City, NV.


     

This is a résumé you can totally download.

For those of you into the media credits, she's been seen on ABC, TLC, IFC, NBC, CNN, ESPN, and What Not To Wear, and heard on The Doctor Demento Show. Yes, she was in that commercial.

Want to know more? Read this interview in Voyage LA or watch this video podcast The Comics' Spot with Linda Marcus Smith!

In her past life she played clubs and colleges across the midwest and east coast, including many great comedy clubs that don't exist anymore (including at least one that literally burnt down). She's opened for Paula Poundstone, Gilbert Gottfried, Jake Johannson, and many non-alliterative comedians as well. How long ago? She once hosted a show with a young feature named Patton Oswalt. Yes, feature. It was a long time ago.
