She continued studying theater, both design and performance, at Pomona College. In 2005, she moved to Los Angeles and started performing stand up nightly. Her uniquely honest, tender and endearing presence on stage quickly earned her the nickname, “The Sweetheart of Stand Up.” In 2008 she won Best New Comer at the Southern California Comedy Scoomie Awards, and went on to win Most Adorable Comic the following year (yes, that is a real award and I took it by a landslide, thank you. Oh sorry, third person.) She is also the winner of the That’s the Light Comedy Competition, and a finalist in Uncle Clyde’s and H2F’s comedy competitions. Among many other venues, she has performed at the Hollywood Improv, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, The Comedy Store, The Comedy Studio in Boston and with the People’s Republic of Komedy in Seattle. She has also studied Improv with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and the world famous Groundlings. Frequently raw, poignant, sad, sweet, honest and hilarious, her act recently prompted one fan to ask, “You’re really funny. Are you o.k.?” Heather is great, but she’s so glad you’re here to listen. Why is the Comedy Womb Presents series so exciting?! The Comedy Womb is a safer space for everyone, with hate-free (no misogyny, racism, homophobia, transphobia, etc...)material guidelines. We focus on getting more diversity of voice into stand up comedy and celebrating the hilarious work of comics who punch up and not down. We will be bringing in an exciting out of town headliner every month from now until June, and showcasing some of the wonderful comics on the national scene including: Heather Thomson, Karinda Dobbins, Rye Silverman, and Aparna Nancherla! Plus on each show there will be local talent as well, both hosts and featured acts plus a short sampling of new, excited up and coming comics drawn from the talented curated mic every Tuesday night at the Rendezvous, at 7pm and 9pm!
