Emily Ruskowski, Stand Up Comic

Originally from Boston, Emily has been performing all over the Washington, D.C. area for the last two years. Her silly likeability and anecdotal, lighthearted style have won her several contests, including the D.C. Improv's 2011 "Funniest College Competition" for her school, George Mason University, where she is earning her Master's in Clinical Social Work. Emily's perspective as a social work student informs her comedy, contributing to a performance that is inclusive and upbeat, without compromising on the funny.
