MARIE CHENG is a comedy writer-performer based in Los Angeles.
As the first in her family born in the U.S., she gravitates toward fish-out-of-water stories where the fish aren't afraid to show their gills. She grew up torn between her Chinese heritage and all-American upbringing, which pushed her to pursue storytelling as a way to connect to both.
She graduated from Chapman's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts with a BFA in Animation through the support of a Presidential Scholarship. While in school, she studied abroad in Florence, Italy, and won't stop talking about it. She loves curly fries and animals that look like bread.
