About Eileen

Eileen is a comedy writer, performer, and podcaster living in Los Angeles. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, she got her start in comedy as a member of the Second City Teen Ensemble. She moved to LA to attend Loyola Marymount University and by the time graduation rolled by, she was too in love with the city (re: the weather) to ever leave. Plus it was the height of the self-serve frozen yogurt boom. I mean, come on.


She improvises all around LA with her teams Pew Pew Pachoo and My Favorite Customer (a house team at The Improv Space). Eileen also performs for Top Story! Weekly, a weekly topical sketch comedy show at iO West (voted “Best in Los Angeles” by CBS 2). In addition to being a proud cast member, Eileen is also a staff writer and the show's segment producer. Offstage, she's the cohost of Skeeterial: A Muppet Babies Investigation, a comedy podcast that combines the beloved '80s cartoon with true crime.

Eileen served as the Senior Writer for Guff Media and its flagship property, Guff.com. She created the highest-performing pieces of content for Guff, where her articles personally accrued over 3 billion views. Her articles have been shared on Facebook by George Takei, Guns N' Roses, Akon, and more. She also wrote for Guff Media's other properties, including Memes.com and SarcasmSociety.com. 

Eileen loves Space Jam. If you made it this far reading her bio, then she also loves you.
