Holly brings joy, love, and poetry to the improv community. She injects humanity into her characters and breathes authenticity into her work, and if you’ve met her, you’ve undoubtedly felt her warm and sunshiny presence.Holly Laurent is the creator and host of the hit podcast MEGA, she’s the co-host and producer of the podcast It's a Wonderful Lie, and she’s a featured contributor on the nationally syndicated radio variety show Live From Here (APM).
