According to The Huffington Post, NYC-based stand up-comedian and writer Phoebe Robinson is one of “18 Funny Women You Should Be Following On Twitter,” but with the way things are going, it seems the place to follow her is on TV.
Phoebe is a writer for MTV’s “Girl Code” and most recently co-hosted an episode of the new series “Raising McCain”, appeared on FX’s “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” was a panelist on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz,” and has been featured on several talking head shows for Pivot TV, VH-1, and the TV Guide Channel such as “100 Shows to See Before You Die,” “25 Biggest Reality Star Blunders,” and “40 Greatest Hip Hop Songs.”
When not on television, Phoebe’s a writer for Glamour.com and contributes to The New York Times. Her blog Blaria (aka Black Daria) was picked up by The Huffington Post and is regularly featured on their website. She has also been published in Time Out NY, The NY Post, and The Smoking Jacket.
Phoebe has also made her mark in the world of stand up. She was a finalist in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity competition and was a part of their 2011-2012 USA college tour. Since the tour, she has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Eugene Mirman Festival, the New York Underground Comedy Festival, the All Jane No Dick Festival, SF Sketchfest, the Women in Comedy Festival, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and the New York Comedy Festival.
