You may recognize Jamie Lee from her long-run as a core cast member on MTV’s Girl Code. Or from her complex and winning role as comic Ali Reissen on HBO’s Crashing.
Jamie also wrote for Crashing, as well as The Pete Holmes Show and the sitcom Teachers. Shortly after getting engaged, Jamie teamed up with fellow comedian Jacqueline Novak to write Weddiculous: An Unfiltered Guide to Being a Bride.
She’s also performed standup on Conan, The Pete Holmes Show, James Corden, and was a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing. Her comedy is full of clever turns of phrase, animated delivery, and just a hint of absurdity.
If you want more Jamie Lee in your life, you can listen to her Sex and the City podcast Couldn’t Help But Wonder. Every week, she and comedian Rose Surnow analyze another episode of the series “as a jumping-off point to overshare about their own wild lives.”
According to Deadline, Jamie is currently developing the series The Girlfriend for Freeform. Written by Jamie, the show revolves around a 30-something woman “whose life is turned upside down when she finally meets ‘the one’… Too bad ‘the one’ is the prime suspect in his wife’s mysterious disappearance.” Sounds great!
