Ginny Hogan is an LA-based writer and stand up comic. She's a contributor for The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, The Observer, McSweeney's, and Vulture. Forbes profiled her as a rising satire star, and she was on Paste's list of top humorists.
Currently, Ginny is working on I'M MORE DATEABLE THAN A PLATE OF REFRIED BEANS, a book of humorous essays to be published by Chronicle Books in Spring 2022.
In 2021, Ginny created YES WE MUSTARD, an Audible Original scripted comedy about a corrupt condiments tech startup. You can listen here.
In 2019, Ginny published a book of humorous essays, Toxic Femininity in the Workplace, with Morrow Gift, an imprint of HarperCollins, which was included on Vulture's list of top 10 comedy books of 2019. It's loosely based on men she worked with in the tech industry who were, by and large, annoying.
Ginny performs stand up comedy all over the place. She wrote jokes for the 2018 Friar's Club roast of Gloria Allred. She's also had sketches featured on Comedy Central's digital platform. If you want to see some videos of her doing stand up, look no further than this tab.
She's currently working on THE TRIPLE - a political drama feature about the education of a future alt-right tyrant. It was featured by The Black List in September 2021. If you'd like to read a copy of it, or check out the short story it was based on, please reach out!
She tweets what can only be described as "a reasonable amount" @ginnyhogan_, and she deeply resents the owner of the handle @ginnyhogan. Vulture wrote an article about her Twitter account. Her Twitter is the best way to find out where she's doing stand up, what she's writing, who she has a crush on, and what she ate for breakfast.
