Laura Burns is a writer and performer of stories, songs, and characters that are off-kilter, sometimes dark, and always silly. Previous publications include The Rumpus, Funny not Slutty, and Out of Stock. She has performed at comedy venues across New England and a little bit further, including appearances at the Women in Comedy Festival, Funny Women Fest LA (where she screened web series, Cooking Alone), Philly Sketchfest (with sketch group Friends of Gertrude), and NYC Improv Fest.
