Natasha Samreny is a writer, storyteller and comedian homing between Chicago and central Florida.
She wrote her first book about the time she and her family drove to Japan in a car. It was published on beige drawing paper with staples. She has written and performed live lit, sketch and stand-up around the Midwest and was once described as the woman who “told the story that ruined my love for peanut M&Ms”.
Samreny found storytelling in radio, and comedy in Chicago where she trained with The Second City, Moving Dock Theatre and sketch and improv groups around the Midwest. She produces life histories by day, performing stand-up and storytelling by night, and with Florida Studio Theatre’s improv ensemble. Currently, she’s also writing and rehearsing an original sketch revue with Millenial Fresh, a comedy troupe based in Sarasota. Stay tuned for details on their show premiering in April 2016!
Her work’s been aired on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered. She speaks Spanish and Arabic and flies comfortably on both sides of the camera. For more resume, check out her LinkedIn. And for tweets (oh those tweets) mosey on down to @natashasamreny.
