About Me


Anna Lane

I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1970's.  I am an only child, and was raised primarily by my Mom.  I've always loved entertaining people, and apparently I did a killer Zsa Zsa Gabor impression at age three.  I spent most of my formative years as a theater nerd, so I'm sure that gives you a pretty accurate idea of the excitement of my high school social life.

I attended Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, where I had a roommate who turned tricks in our dorm room, and I received an incredibly useful and in-demand BFA in theater (read: I'm a really great bartender).  After years spent in New York, I moved to Los Angeles, mainly to pursue an acting career, but also because I couldn't afford to live by myself in Manhattan.  Upon moving to LA I booked two commercials that never aired, lost a part in a movie to someone with "name recognition" and finally gave up acting for the incredibly lucrative life of a stand-up comic.  I've been described as a "young Rita Rudner" and have performed throughout the United States.

Upon discovering that it was possible to turn my jokes, sarcasm and unique life experiences into story form, I embarked on a journey into the world of writing.  I have completed several television scripts, written and produced an original spec comedy pilot, and I'm a regular contributor to Scary Mommy, HuffPo Parents, and Laughing My Vag Off.  I currently work primarily as a freelance writer, and I am the Los Angeles Editor for Stroller Traffic

I live in the city of concrete and broken dreams City of Angels with my Husband, and our two children.
