What you'll do

Behold the first-ever "Improvised Comedy Tour" in NYC, accompanied by a variety of wacky characters, and also Mimi herself. You may check out some sweet street art with way-too-hipster "Willow" and behold the architectural wonders of Central Park with "Darla" who is just a bit too into buttresses. Catch a quick bite with Mimi and her crew of tour guide misfits at famous Hollywood filming locations, (Darla is a big fan of Tom Hanks of course) and check out the historic buildings, sites, and local fare that this city has to offer! While her characters may not be the best tour guides, Mimi will fact-check their silliness and make sure guests get a unique tour like none other! No more of that boring walking tour business where you're not allowed to ask questions! Watch Darla hop on a motorized mini scooter and chow down on the best bagel you've ever tasted (but watch out, Willow is a Vegan and will want some cream cheese alternatives!) This tour is the perfect pick for people who want an intimate 5-star comedy show and a class walking tour...AT THE SAME TIME.

Learn more about Mimi

Mimi

I am an author and stand up comedian with expertise in improvised comedy and theater. I toured my one-woman show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year, an adaptation of my memoir that came out last year ("I'll Be OK, It's Just a Hole in My Head"). I have lived in New York since 2017 and have made my way into the comedy and podcasting scene. My podcast "Mimi and The Brain" was a finalist for the Werk It Women's Podcasting convention in 2018. I am adapting my book into a TV series and a TED Talk. I also teach creative writing classes to adults and help manage other performers, upcoming-authors, and comedians through my side consulting business. This year I will pitch a new podcast at the Third Coast Convention and will appear in the She Makes Me Laugh all-female comedy festival in New York City.
