Cameron Esposito is a Los Angeles-based standup comic, actor and writer.
Named a Comic to Watch by The New York Times, Variety, The Guardian, LA Weekly, Time Out Los Angeles, Jezebel, Los Angeles Magazine, and Cosmopolitan Magazine, Cameron hosts her own standup show, Put Your Hands Together, every Tuesday night at the famed Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles.
In May, Cameron Esposito released her new special, Rape Jokes, online, for free, asking only for donations to RAINN, a sexual assault charity. A personal exploration of the #MeToo movement, the show was self-financed with the help of friends who donated their time. Within 24 hours, Cameron and her Rape Jokes were being showered with praise. The “unapologetically hard-hitting, bracingly timely hour” (Vanity Fair) was hailed as “blistering, masterful, tragic, hilarious” (New York Magazine) and the “first great stand-up set of the #MeToo era” (The Daily Beast).
Cameron’s sophomore album, Same Sex Symbol debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts and was named a Best of 2014 comedy album by The AV Club, Consequence of Sound, Laugh Button, and Paste Magazine. Cameron’s debut standup special Marriage Material was released in 2016 and her first book is forthcoming from Hachette/Grand Central Publishing. Cameron is co-creator and co-star of Take My Wife, a television series which has gotten rave reviews from The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Vulture and Indiewire and is available now on iTunes and the Starz App and Starz On Demand.
She also hosts her own podcast Queery – an hour long conversations with some of the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ family. Queery explores individual stories of identity, personality and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality and civil rights.
Cameron has also appeared on TV shows such as Maron, Drunk History, Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ and Comedy Bang Bang.
