ABOUT BRITTANY MEYER
Brittany Meyer (they/them) is a FORCE. With just three years on the scene in the Chicago comedy scene, they’ve become a powerful voice for the LGBTQAI+ community. Their work features biting wit and a true underlying sweetness that pulls you in and draws the laughter out. It’s truly a case study in how to perfectly punch up. If you don’t relate to them, you’re dead inside.
They produce Strip Joker, a wildly successful body-positive showcase featuring diverse bodies, voices, and states of undress. When not producing Strip Joker or Chicago mainstay Tuxedo Cat Comedy, Brittany tells jokes all over the city. They’ve traveled the country performing comedy and featured in festivals including Cream City Comedy, Memphis Comedy Fest, and Lady Laughs. They also make mincemeat of opponents regularly as Stone Cold Jane Austen in the Chicago League of Lady Wrestlers. For more about Brittany, visit www.brittanymeyerdoesthat.com.
