My name is Olivia Corkery Perry and I am a Chicago-based comedian and actress.
I started my comedy career really as a kid, memorizing jokes from Comedy Central Presents and getting in trouble for talking too much.
Professionally? I’d say The Second City Writing program is what opened the floodgates. From there I started doing stand up, wrote and starred in a sketch show (Spring Fling, 2019) with Michelle Leatherby and Paige Maney, have performed at multiple festivals, and was a cast member of The Lincoln Lodge. You can also catch me on Comedy Central/HBOs South Side as Erin in seasons 1 and 2.
Before comedy, I graduated with a BA in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing and a minor in Comparative Politics at The University of Puget Sound. I also did a couple PR internships and was an Assistant Account Executive at an Ad agency (Geminis are multifaceted).
I enjoy reading, knitting, cross stitching, tweeting, watching documentaries, and planning my 2028 run for president. Hope you like what you see!
