About Samantha Ruddy

According to Samantha Ruddy herself, she’s “Joe Rogan but for women who talk to their cats.” The comedian, recently named one of Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest People, brings a refreshing light-hearted tone to the ever-increasingly crass and politically-fueled world of stand up comedy. With “stand up that even a grandmother would love,” according to Forbes, Samantha’s good hearted humor and relatable, gay-millennial life views continue off stage and onto her popular Twitter account, where she keeps her 23K+ followers constantly entertained with musings such as “I’m so into rose gold right now that I’m starting to worry I’m a straight woman.”
