Biography

America is falling in love with Maryellen Hooper... and it's easy to see why. With her unique brand of storytelling and quirky physical humor, she's one of comedy's brightest stars.

Ms. Hooper was named Best Female Stand-Up at the 12th Annual American Comedy Awards--stand-up's highest honor. She has performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Her numerous television and radio appearances include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Lifetime's Girl's Night Out, A&E's Evening at the Improv, and her own Comedy Central Lounge Lizards special.

Maryellen Hooper's first comedy CD--aptly titled "Dignity Under Duress"--was recorded live at the legendary Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena and released on the Uproar label.

Though she was born on Long Island, Ms. Hooper grew up in the Tampa, Florida area. She learned quickly that being funny was a good way to be accepted. When acting in high school and community theater productions, she always got the funny parts; but it wasn't until 1985 that she truly considered comedy a career. After entering (and winning) talent competitions at nearby comedy clubs, it wasn't long before she headed to New York.

Of course, Maryellen Hooper didn't give up her day job(s) right away...while learning the ropes of the New York comedy club scene by night, she earned rent money by cutting hair in an upscale Manhattan salon and working as a "rolling billboard"--complete with orange jumpsuit, helmet and skates--around Wall Street.

As an up-and-comer on the comedy circuit, Ms. Hooper soon found herself in demand as an opening act for such talents as Jerry Seinfeld, Gilbert Gottfried, Tommy Davidson, Andrew Dice Clay, and Wynonna Judd.

A true original, Maryellen Hooper is a favorite at venues across the country. Whether she is headlining at a Las Vegas showroom or a local comedy club, her patented style of silliness will have you falling out of your chair. She makes her home in Los Angeles.
