MARIE CHENG (she/her) is a comedy writer-performer based in Los Angeles. As the first in her family born in the U.S., she grew up torn between her Chinese heritage and all-American upbringing. Writing and drawing were ways to craft a world where she could eat ice cream using chopsticks without judgment, inspiring her to pursue storytelling as a career.
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.
