Emily Helfgot is a writer and performer with a professional background in elementary school teaching and literacy-based non-profit work. She is an alumni of Killing My Lobster, a sketch comedy group in San Francisco, and has facilitated workshops for teachers on how to teach writing to their students in New York, Minneapolis and the Bay Area. In May 2006 she was featured on an episode of NPR’s This American Life (‘The Angels in the Centerfold’), which formed the basis for her one-woman show (‘Play/date’) that she wrote and performed in November 2006 at the Red Room in the East Village.
