Emily Duke


Emily Duke does it all! This NYC comedian is a staple on the comedy stages around town AND in Los Angeles, PLUS season 2 of her fantastic web series Garbage People is slated for release in July, PLUS she curates and hosts the Canal Yards Project - a monthly comedy show in Brooklyn’s Industry City (which has featured the likes of Janelle James, Julio Torres, Aparna Nancherla, Phoebe Robinson, and many more), PLUS she co-hosts the podcast Because We’re On. (Phew!)


More about Emily Duke:

Emily Duke is a born and raised, holier-than-thou New Yorker. Strangers call her hilarious. Friends call her endearing and tiresome. Dearest friends call her completely insufferable.


You can find her doing standup on both coasts at Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Stand Up NY, NY Comedy Club, Ice House, Flappers and UCB.


Emily produces and hosts Canal Yards Project, a monthly stand-up show sponsored by Bust Magazine featuring performers like Phoebe Robinson and Aparna Nancherla.


Emily co-created, co-writes and co-stars in the WebFest selection Garbage People. She is also a writer for Portland’s Late Night Special at The Curious Comedy Theater, and has been published by Points in Case and Slackjaw.


Emily loves carbohydrates and feels cosmically connected to Bette Midler.



Sponsored by BUST MAGAZINE, Canal Yards Project is a monthly comedy show at Industry City in Sunset Park, BK. Born and raised New Yorker, body inclusion activist, and comedy writer / producer Emily Duke, produces the comedy lineup, which features female and diverse comedians like Phoebe Robinson and Aparna Nancherla from Comedy Central, CONAN, Netflix, The Tonight Show, HBO and more.
