Christie received a PhD from UCLA’s esteemed School of Theatre, Film. While at UCLA she wrote her doctoral dissertation on the subject of stand-up comedy (during which she also created, produced, and performed comedy shows). To say Christie is a lover of comedy is a gross understatement – she is obsessed with finding subtle, rambunctious, and nuanced humor embedded in all human experience. Christie has produced numerous live comedy shows, including sketch, comedic storytelling, and her favorite weekly stand-up show on the planet, Good Humor Comedy (now running six years and still treating audiences to free ice cream).
She is also a proud graduate of Second City’s Conservatory program and an accomplished improviser. This combination of stand-up and improv makes for truly fearless, one-of-a-kind, and unforgettable performances.
