Julianne Simitz

Julianne Simitz is an LA-based stand up comedian, writer, and producer. Founder of The Clitorati and an alumna of CBS Diversity Showcase, Julianne has performed in iconic clubs, festivals, and shitty dive bars from sea to shining sea. She is the co-creator, executive producer, and head writer of Bad News, a political comedy talk show filmed live at Hollywood’s ACME Comedy Theatre. Julianne is also a writer and co-producer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallopian Tubes (UCB) and writer and talent producer for The Night Cap with Stacy Rumaker (Pack Theater).

Beyond her work on-stage, Julianne is President of Women in Comedy Los Angeles, a nonprofit that connects and empowers women in the industry while advocating for their increased presence and pay scale. In her past life, she was a pinko commie activist in Washington, D.C. until she moved to Hollywood, trading in fluorescent lights for spotlights with no regrets. Julianne hates ignorance (a lot) and the word moist (even more).
