CARA MICHELLE SMITH
COMEDY AND HUMOR WRITER
Hi! I'm Cara Michelle Smith—a comedy and humor writer in Chicago. You can find my work in The New Yorker, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Reductress, The Rumpus and Splitsider, among other publications.
I'm a headline contributor at The Onion. I'm also a staff writer at Omnarchy, a dystopian satire site that will surely read as straight news very, very soon.
I've trained with The Second City Writing Program, and perform storytelling and stand-up comedy.
I once thought it was possible to visit Florida without getting a tattoo. I'll level with you, reader—I was wrong.
