My name is Michelle Spies! That is why this website is www.michellespies.com (it was on purpose!)

I'm a freelance writer and comedian who specializes in self-deprecating humor and ruining things people like. I'm a 2014 graduate of Northwestern University's Radio/TV/Film program which means I've seen a lot of movies and I am in debt. I also completed The Onion's Writing Fellowship in 2015. Currently I'm a Contributing Writer for the site.

You may have read some of my other jokes and pieces in Clickhole, Botnik, Vulture, Someecards, or Onion Labs. It's possible you've seen me doing [what I call] stand up at "Critic" (the live movie review comedy show I created) back in Chicago.

Right now I'm in Los Angeles writing pilots and waiting for a pandemic to be over. If you are New Line / Warner Brothers contact me re: writing Final Destination: The Musical.
