Nikki Palumbo

Los Angeles, California, United States

I'm a writer, comedian, and Italian based in LA, formerly Brooklyn, and originally from New Jersey — the only three places in TV's America. Most recently, I won the 2022 Austin TV Festival Pitch Competition with my pilot "Lil Italy" and was selected as an inaugural member of the Climate Comedy Cohort, co-founded by Gen 180 and American University’s Center for Media and Social Impact. One of my goals is to be a television showrunner making subversive queer comedies until they're no longer subversive.
