About Devil's Daughter
What is Devil's Daughter
Devil's Daughter is a team of veteran improvisers, actors, writers, teachers, and good buds. For over 6 years, we did live shows onstage for crowds of people pressed together in a small room. Can't do that anymore, so during this comedy apocalypse, we're bringing together the smartest, funniest talent in the city to produce entertaining (occasionally HORRIFYING) podcasts--sometimes remotely if necessary. Join us as we set out to make something new and extremely weird.
