"She is small but packs a punch... The drive is infectious. She is smart and direct, her anxieties and achievements laid bare with the best kind of self-awareness." -London Theatre 1
"Miele is one to keep an eye on; her performance is charming, and most importantly of all, tremendously funny. This is my favourite kind of no-bullshit comedy, delivered by a very talented and charming performer." -London Theatre 1 (FOUR STARS)
"Mind Over Melee is delivered virtually flawlessly... It’s clear that she knows her material inside out, and performs it freshly and without a single moment of hesitation." -Broadway Baby
"Her brilliantly dry delivery and Jersey drawl complete a forcible and gutsy performance. She is without a doubt a shining beacon of the New York comedy scene." -Broadway Baby (Four stars)
"There's no ceremony to Liz Miele's arrival, taking to the stage without intro music or even an announcement – she just starts telling jokes. Mind Over Melee is a simple hour of incredibly well-penned gags." -Fest Mag (Four stars)
"Liz knows how to hold her audiences attention and has them laughing from beginning to end." -One4Review (Four stars)
Liz Miele, one of NYC's youngest veteran comics has announced the upcoming release of her second full-length comedy album, Mind Over Melee. Liz Miele shares her battle with physical health, mental illness in her family, missing two flights to Finland, travelling through Europe alone, dating a guy who invented a cat toy, and her attempt to conquer adulthood with the skewed logic of an angry New Yorker trying to make sense of it all. After honing her new hour of material at the Edinburgh Fringe, Miele will be celebrating the album with a release show at New York Comedy Club on the release date proper, March 28th, including guest comedians, Carmen Lynch, Adrienne Iapalucci, Nore Davis and more.
Liz Miele, originally from New Jersey, started doing stand-up at 16 in New York City. At 18 she was profiled in The New Yorker, at 22 she appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.” She recently appeared on AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live,” Hulu’s “Coming to the Stage” and Fox’s “Laughs.” She’s also a regular panelist on Fox’s “Redeye.” She’s been profiled in Runner's World, Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and The Guardian.

She’s completed four European tours performing in UK, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Luxembourg, Belgium and Finland and will be doing her fifth in April.
Her joke “Feminist Sex positions” went viral both on YouTube and Upworthy.com. She just completed writing and producing season one of her animated web series “Damaged,” voiced by great comics including, Maz Jobrani, Hari Kondabolu, Ted Alexandro, Dean Edwards, DC Benny, Joe Machi and so many more.
