Chelsea Shorte

Originally from Richmond, Va. After moving to the DC Metro for work, Chelsea discovered comedy as a way to stave off the boredom of being a beautiful twenty-something. Beginning in 2010, Chelsea has studied and performed improv at several of Washington DC's improv theaters, including ComedySportz DC, DC Improv, and Washington Improv Theater. Since first taking the stage as a stand up in early 2011, she has flourished in the local DC stand up comedy scene. In addition to hosting her own monthly female comedy showcase, Chelsea is a frequent host of other stand up shows in the area.
