Lynn Bixenspan is really nice! Also, she’s done a lot of stuff. Like, she’s been on MTV, Comedy Central, and the Biography Channel (Celebrity Ghost Stories). She’s also written for Fuse and Wizard Entertainment and a whole bunch of ad campaigns, including Viagra, which is the least funny thing she’s ever done. She was nominated for an Emerging Comics of New York Award, but isn’t sure if she’s emerged yet. You might have heard her on RISK! or seen her telling stories and doing stand-up around town. Most importantly, Joss Whedon follows her on Twitter, so you should, too.
