Selena Coppock is a standup comedian, writer, and storyteller based in NYC. She has been called a "dark horse audiences never see coming" by The Village Voice and an "impressive young talent" by the New York Times. Bustle called her one of the 8 Funniest Feminists on Twitter and TheFrisky ranked her one of the 25 Funniest Feminists on Twitter. In May 2013, she published her debut book, THE NEW RULES FOR BLONDES (HarperCollins), a collection of personal essays celebrating and subverting the blonde stereotype. Her writing has also been featured on Jezebel, McSweeney's, Reductress, The Loom, xoJane, Huffington Post, TheFrisky, and she was a contributing writer to TVLand's Younger.

Selena has trained at iO (Chicago), Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (NY), and ImprovAslyum (Boston) and has earned spots in a multitude of comedy festivals.
When not pushing her pro-blonde agenda, Selena can usually be found in a dive bar lamenting the breakup of Guns ‘n Roses and putting Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” on the juke box.
