Megan Phillips (writer/performer/music & lyrics)

Hot off her 2023 run of Pam in The Office at Celebrations Dinner Theatre, Megan is the best friend you didn’t even know you needed. She’s done extensive film & TV, commercials, VO, and soooo many web shorts. Like SO MANY. She has toured solo shows, standup, and sketch comedy across the country since 2012, and her co-written musical People Suck (Ed Mirvish Entrepreneurial Award, Best of Fringe 2015, Patron’s Pick 2015), produced by Salty Theatre in Melbourne, AUS, was optioned by Second City Theatricals in Chicago. She's an OG member of the NYC-based digital sketch team Get Me a F*cking Shovel, directed by twice-Emmy-nominated Ana Breton, her articles have been published by GOLD Comedy, and she runs solo show workshops with TJ Dawe. You may recognize her from that quirky office girl in the YouTube commercial. She really, really, REALLY loves wombats… almost as much as Grease 2. ALMOST.
