Katie Novotny from Los Angeles will be at the 2024 Vail Comedy Festival

Katie Novotny

Katie Novotny has the self-deprecating humor of a Midwestern tomboy. She doesn’t shy away from her Catholic upbringing, her dad’s love of Fox News, and how incredibly bad she is at dating. But she is afraid to talk about sex –mainly ’cause she rarely has it. She earned a spot on SLO Comedy Festival’s Best of Fest line up and has been an official artist at HBO’s Women in Comedy Festival, Amsterdam’s Boom Chicago Comedy Festival, Lysistrata Comedy Festival, Cleveland’s Comedy Festival, Portland Maine’s Comedy Festival, Alaska’s B4UDie Festival. She trained at Second City and iO in improv and sketch comedy, produced two award-winning webseries (Guilty and Wellness Check), and her pilot scripts have landed her as a semi-finalist in Slamdance and Screencraft. She’s performed at Hollywood Fringe Festival and is commercially repped by BBR. She dreams of using her arthritic knees to become an influencer for Bengay.
