Maya May is a writer and stand-up who turned to humor to navigate the awkwardness of growing up a black nerd and only child in suburban Chicago. Maya has featured at some of the country’s best independent showcases, including Brooklyn’s Butterboy, Chicago’s Lincoln Lodge and Hollywood Improv’s Women Crush Wednesdays. Her comedy is just like she is: engaging, mischievous, and deliciously over-the-top. Often incisive, sometimes self-deprecating, but always bluntly honest, Maya keeps audiences on their toes, seamlessly transitioning from energetic rants about parenting a genius baby to wry observations on race, politics, gender, and that one time she was mistaken for Michelle Obama. Since moving back to the US in 2013 after 8 years overseas, she has taken her unique perspective on American life to stages all over the country, featuring everywhere from the Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival and co-headlining at Portland’s All Jane Comedy Festival.
