Hi My name is Ruby Karp. I’m a senior in high school and I’m a comic.

So me. I’ve grown up watching improv. Literally since I was a fetus, when my Mom used to do monologues at ASSSSCAT. My first official show was in 2003 in Jake Fogelnest’s and Paul Scheer’s Talk Show. When I was four, I asked for ice cream in Human Giant’s first episode of Shutterbugs. I was the host of the monthly Hello Giggles Presents storytelling & stand up show. Now I host the monthly stand up show We Hope You Have Fun at UCB East, it’s always on the second Monday of the month, you should come. I was in the first season of Smart Girls at the Party talking with Amy about feminism.  What else? 12 was a big year: I won a Moth Slam and I did a one-hour long two-prov scene with Chris Gethard and I wore an alien costume on a Broad City Live show with Abbi and Ilana. Oh, I’ve done a TEDx talk. I’ve spoken at the UN, the It’s Our Turn conference and hosted StuVoice. I’ve written for Hello Giggles, Mashable, Refinery29 and the Mindhut. Oh, and I’m the author of  EARTH HATES ME and if you buy it, you will be helping me pay for college. Right now, I’m a senior in high school and I hope I pass my AP’s!
