Sara Benincasa


Sara Benincasa is a comedian and the author of the book “Agorafabulous!: Dispatches From My Bedroom” from William Morrow/HarperCollins, which has been optioned for TV. The memoir is based on her critically acclaimed solo show (as seen at SF Sketchfest ’10) about panic attacks and agoraphobia. A new solo show, “Love and Other Indoor Sports,” debuted in workshop in Oslo, Norway at Det Andre Teatret in 2013. She co-hosts the Los Angeles incarnation of Kevin Allison’s “Risk!” live show. Her second book, “Great,” a Gatsby-inspired novel about love and scandal among teens in the Hamptons, is due out in April 2014 from HarperTeen. Sara is currently working on her third book, “Believers,” due out from HarperTeen in summer 2015. Inspired by “Lord of the Flies,” it’s about a group of evangelical Christian teen show choir girls from Texas who crash-land on a deserted island. She is currently at work on an original pilot based on “Agorafabulous” and also on growing her hair out.
