On The Verge Spotlight: Molly Austin

A writer/performer and stand-up, Molly broke into the comedy zeitgeist with her comedic music videos on TruTV’s Late Night Snacks. Working with her sometimes collaborator, Shamikah Martinez, the videos are a mix of the outright absurd and wickedly feminist. The ladies subsequently sold and shot the pilot WINKS to TruTV with Debbie Liebling executive producing. Most recently, Molly was one of 14 stand-ups selected for Comedy Central’s UP NEXT at this year’s Clusterfest. Her performance was wonderfully received and the select clips from it have been the most viewed of all the Up Next performers on Facebook with over half a million views and growing. She can also be seen as one of the stand-up comics on this past season of LAFF MOBB’S LAFF TRACKS. She is currently writing and producing on VICELAND’S evening talk show, VICE LIVE.
