Re: Irene Fagan Merrow

Irene Fagan Merrow is a stand up comedian and writer based in Brooklyn and — because she has good mannersshe has never written a TV pilot based on her life. She has written other pilots though! In fact, she studied television writing at Emerson College, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude (yas, bitch) . One of her scripts, “Housekeeping,” was awarded “Best Comedy Pilot” at the Broad Humor Film Festival.

On any given night, Irene can be found performing her stand up all over Brooklyn and Manhattan. She’s performed at Caroline’s on Broadway, UCB, New York Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, and at a lot of bars that nobody has ever heard of. She is also the co-host of “We’re Tired” a diverse show that has been featured in Timeout New York as one of the best monthly shows in NYC. Irene is known for calling out the dark absurdities in this dum-dum life. She relishes in what makes her deeply upset. Fun!

Irene currently writes news and political content for the popular website and social media conglomerate Betches, which boasts over 118K followers on Instagram. Her written work has also been featured on Reductress, Someecards, Paste Magazine, Above Average, and Elite Daily. Irene’s favorite part of writing is staring at the wall and screaming.

Irene makes jokes, understands politics, and has legit perfect eyebrows, all in a day’s work. Dumb bitch women really can have it all! This bio took her three days and five nightmares to write.
