Gracie has been a working writer and comedian for seven years. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Industrial Design, her former love of film, theater, and validation from strangers lead her to discover and hone a new passion for stand up comedy. She has since performed at noteable festivals like San Francisco Sketchfest, Laugh Your Asheville off, has written and produced sketches that have appeared in places like Funny or Die! and in the Quickie Film Festival, and contributed satire pieces to Little Old Lady Comedy and WICF Daily. Her style can be described as dry, cheeky, and by one audience member at a corporate event, "offputting." Her immediate life goals are to land a job in a writer's room and to curb her frequent use of Good Will Hunting quotes in everyday conversation.
