BIO

Molly is a comedy writer, performer and director. Her short comedic film, Boy Genius, which she wrote and starred in with Becca Roth was an official selection of the Women in Comedy Festival. Eggs for Sale, Molly's sketch show about the lives of millennial women with Ariel Karlin, played to sold out crowds during a run at the UCB Theatre. She and Ariel have also turned their sketches into digital videos for Refinery29's RIOT comedy channel. Molly wrote for the Sketch Team Pretty Boys and played the lovable overgrown orphan Lady Carrot in Hint: A Murder Mystery at UCB directed by Will Storie.

 

When she's not writing and performing sketch, she's directing and acting with Story Pirates, an incredible organization that brings stories written by kids to life onstage. Molly has taught sketch writing at UCB and has studied sketch and improv at UCB, The PIT, Second City and ImprovBoston. Her writing has been used by several well-known brands and has appeared on humor websites including McSweeney's, Reductress , Points in Case and The Belladonna. Her last name is pronounced "Kahn," which no one ever expects.
