GUS LAUGHLIN (he/they) is a queer comedy writer, director and theater artist based in Brooklyn. He is a recent graduate of the Experimental Theater Wing at NYU Tisch, where he was the director and head writer of Hammerkatz, NYU’s premier sketch comedy group. He’s performed original characters and sketches at Madison Square Garden, the Barclays Center and Radio City Music Hall. Pre-pandemic, you could find him performing monthly on BEAST at UCB Subculture (RIP!) or with the sketch/filmmaking group LISA at the Brooklyn Comedy Collective and Under St. Marks Theater. Biggest weakness? Can’t do the splits.
