Jennifer Walk is a writer, comedian, and theater enthusiast living in New York City. It was a third-grade field trip to the Kansas City Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker that ignited her love of the performing arts, and she hasn’t looked back since. She graduated magna cum laude from Evangel University and earned a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism, despite spending more time in the Theatre Department than the Communications Department.
She works in arts advertising by day and has written for some of NYC’s biggest shows — including Fleabag starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The Band’s Visit, Come From Away, The Prom, Be More Chill, and Marianne Elliott’s revival of Company. She was also the co-writer of The Showtune Countdown on iHeartRadio Broadway from its inception through March 2020. Outside of theater, her short film, Novak, won Best Screenplay and was nominated for five other awards at the SATO48 film competition in Springfield, Mo.
In her spare time, Jennifer studies sketch comedy and improv at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York and The Second City online. She is passionate about keeping arts in schools, using the Oxford comma, and iced coffee.
