Phoebe Robinson

According to Serial Optimist, NYC-based stand up-comedian and writer Phoebe Robinson "is brilliant and able to critique some really complex concepts in a sentence or two. Bask in it, people." Which is precisely what Flavorwire is trying to get the public to do when it listed her as one of "25 Female Comedians Everyone Should Know," and with the way things are going, it seems the place to get to know her is on TV.

Phoebe most recently appeared on "Last Comic Standing," "The TODAY show," Comedy Central's "Broad City" and is a staff writer for MTV's "Girl Code." She has co-hosted an episode of the series "Raising McCain," starred in the MTV pilot "Chicks Out of Water," written on the VH1 pilot "Chateau Buteau," appeared on FX’s "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell," VH1’s "Big Morning Buzz" and has been featured on several talking head shows for Pivot TV,VH-1, and the TV Guide Channel such as "100 Shows to See Before You Die," "25 Biggest Reality Star Blunders," and "40 Greatest Hip Hop Songs."

When not on television, Phoebe’s a writer for Glamour.com and contributes to The New York Times, bitch magazine, xoJane, VanityFair.com, and TheDailyBeast. Her blog Blaria (aka Black Daria) was picked up by The Huffington Post and has been featured on their website. She has also been published in Time Out NY, The NY Post, and The Smoking Jacket.

Phoebe has also made her mark in the world of stand up. SF Sketchfest recently named her one of twelve emerging comics in their "Next Wave of Stand-Up Comedy Stars" series. In 2011, she was a finalist in NBC's Stand Up for Diversity competition and was a part of their 2011-2012 USA college tour. Since the tour, she has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, the New York Underground Comedy Festival, the All Jane No Dick Festival, SF Sketchfest, the Women in Comedy Festival, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and the New York Comedy Festival. If you're in NYC, you can catch her at 9:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of every month at UCB East hosting Blaria LIVE!, with "The Daily Show's" Jessica Williams.

Phoebe has also branched out into radio as she has been on Sirius XM’s Raw Dog Comedy, Canada’s CBC Radio, and bitch magazine’s podcast.
