“a total delight to watch onstage, injecting some much-needed prurience into the too-often navel gazing, storytelling scene that all too often feels beholden to some sort of bizarre morality where every story has to end with some lesson learned or a spark of recognition, no matter how forced. By focusing merely on the simple pleasures of ecstatic honesty, suddenly no story is too personal, no detail too horrifying; Caitlin exudes catharsis.”
Caitlin Bergh is an acclaimed, “aggressively honest” funny lady living in Los Angeles (The Steamroller). A stand-up comedian and storyteller, Bergh was named as one of the “rawest and raunchiest stand-ups in the city” in her former home of Chicago (Chicago Reader). She was featured in Chicago’s TBS Just for Laughs Festival and has won numerous live storytelling contests, including The Moth, Write Club and Shame That Tune.
Bergh’s one-woman show, Chunks, a series of graphic and personal vignettes, received rave reviews from the Chicago Reader and Gapers Block. A former cast-member at The Lincoln Lodge, Bergh co-hosted & co-produced the Chicago spin-off of T.J. Miller’s Performance Anxiety for a year and founded The Funny Story Show. Bergh has opened for Pete Holmes, Eddie Pepitone, Rory Scovel, Jay Larson, Nick Thune and Lea Delaria.
Bergh co-runs The Last Book Review in downtown L.A. She is a co-writer, co-producer and co-star of the web series #Hashtag, which Indiewire identified as a potential “next Broad City.”
