Hello From My Website
words. birds. ketchup.
So, You Want To Know About Me...
Well, I'll tell you, but it'll have to be in third person.
Emily Duncan is a Canadian-born, New York-based writer and comedian. She has written in some form or another for Funny or Die, BustedTees, IFC, Verizon, Hallmark, Hasbro, Busch beer, and Nuts.com’s roast of nuts, among others. But you may know her (maybe) as a Level 1 chef - and Level 5 ketchup enthusiast - on Epicurious' YouTube channel.
Emily’s plays have been read or produced at Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Playwrights Playground, The Playwrights Loft, Rising Sun Performance Company, Horse & Cart Theater, The Bus Stop Theater, Little Fish Theater, and SWAN Day Boston. She has written and directed a number of original plays and musicals for The Peoples Improv Theater, including Pluto Is Missing! A Not-So-Planetary Musical and Me and My Birdie: An Ornithological Rock Opera.
Emily also co-hosts Witchcast Podcast (available on all fine podcast platforms) and The Revolution, a monthly intersectional feminist comedy show showcasing female and non-binary comedians at QED in Astoria.
Alexa, play me the sound only cool teens can hear.
I specialize in writing humorous, character-driven ad campaigns, like this one for "Imperfect Produce." I also offer services like joke punch-up, script consulting, copywriting, and proofreading. For more samples or to talk rates, get in touch!
I write plays, musicals, screenplays, TV pilots, sketch comedy, and just about anything else I can get my sticky fingers on. Check out my resume in "Downloads" and keep an eye out for my forthcoming romance novel.

Here's a video of me appearing in the Epicurious "4 Levels" series as an amateur cook. Looking for someone funny to be themselves on camera? Maybe I'm your gal! Just want to see all the cooking videos I'm in? I have a YouTube playlist I made for my family that I can send you.
"It was a pleasure working with Emily! I have nothing but good things to say about both quality of work and communication. Will hire again!"
"Emily was fantastic to work with. On time and on target and did a couple of good revisions. I'll hire her in the future for additional projects. Pleasure to work with."
"Emily was extremely quick with her work, and turned around some amazing ideas to us. She's funny, witty and a great writer!"
