Liz Simons is a comedian, writer, and actress based in New York. She performs stand up all over NYC and produces and hosts the popular monthly show "Laugh It Up, Astoria!" with Jenn Wehrung on the first Thursday of every month at Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. She can be seen in the first three seasons of Broad City as one of Ilana's co-workers at Deals Deals Deals. She also hosts HerFlix on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network and is featured in the webseries Brokers. She has trained at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and the Magnet Theatre and has studied acting with Brooke & Mary and Steve Beauchamp and screenwriting at the New York Screenwriter's Lab under the tutelage of Dylan Gary. 

Liz has written for Oxygen.com and independently founded the pop culture blog TheDVRFiles.com where Jason Priestley once called her "really funny." She could have died right then and there but she still has to wait for Luke Perry to call her "really hot."

Liz grew up in the suburbs of Boston and is a graduate of Duke University, where she received a B.A. in English and delighted audiences as a DJ for the college radio station WXDU-FM and cofounded the sketch comedy group Inside Joke which is still going strong today. She doesn't have an accent but she loves all things Whitey Bulger. Go figure. She is also a very avid, very average runner whose goal is run a marathon in every state . . . 17 in 16 so far!
