Maya May is a writer and stand-up who turned to humor to navigate the awkwardness of growing up a black nerd in suburban Chicago. It worked. She got voted “Most Likely to Make the Yearbook Famous" and received the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award in the same year she called the principal a bastard. Destined to prove she didn't peak in high school her comedy is just like she is: engaging, mischievous, and deliciously over-the-top. Sometimes incisive, sometimes self-deprecating, but always bluntly honest, Maya keeps audiences on their toes, seamlessly transitioning from rants about parenting to wry observations on race, gender, and that one time she was mistaken for Michelle Obama. Since moving back to the US in 2014 after 8 years overseas, she has taken her unique perspective on American life to stages all over the country, featuring at the Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival and headlining the Lady Laughs Comedy Tour. She’s performed everywhere from Chicago’s Laugh Factory to NYC’s Gotham Comedy Club, but her favorite place to perform is wherever you are. Awwwwww.
