Katie Merriam

Director of Photography

Raised on the mean streets of Topeka, KS, Katie learned comedy as a means of survival. A competitive swimming career helped her to see the world and places to live instead of the midwest. She earned an MFA in film production and got busy working in fields that didn’t relate to that degree at all. Finding stand-up comedy relatively late in life – she finally found a place to get that instant gratification that people sing songs about. Katie has produced several web series and sketches, as well as written short stories and pilots that no one has read. Most recently she was seen in the She Devil Comedy Festival in New York City. You can find her work on or Follow her on twitter @katability – celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay does!

Chisom Ude


The irony of studying political economy and choosing a career in comedy is not lost on ChiChi, as she is affectionately known. The Ivy League grad got her start as an intern in BET’s development department. After a brief stint in finance, she moved to LA, and now spends her day at a talent/lit management company. When she is not working full-time, ChiChi frequents the LA comedy circuit and produces projects that move her to tears [of laughter].
