CARA MICHELLE SMITH
COMEDY WRITER & JOURNALIST
Hi! I'm Cara Michelle Smith—a comedy writer and journalist currently in Chicago. I write headlines for The Onion and regularly contribute to The New Yorker, McSweeney's and Reductress, among other comedy publications. I've trained with The Second City and perform storytelling and stand-up.
For the past seven years, I've also worked full-time as a reporter and journalist in Houston and Chicago, covering real estate, housing and economic development.
My comedy writing portfolio is on the next page. If you're interested in journalism clips, sketch samples or my comedy pilot, please reach out.
