Gilli is a writer and performer, and very happy to be here. She worked as a staff writer at Defy Media, writing for popular web shows like Honest Trailers. She is currently writing for Funny or Die. At UCB she has studied under Ian Roberts, Alex Fernie, Eugene Cordero, Todd Fasen, Mike Leffingwell, Will McLaughlin, and Julie Brister. She has also studied at The Westside Comedy Theater and The Groundlings. Gilli performs sketch with the UCB team Glendale and improv with wild and wonderful team Winslow. They can be seen at the show Winslow: F*ck, Marry, Kill at UCB Franklin every Friday at 9:30pm. Additional UCB credits include Tournament of Nerds, Cagematch, Starpunch, A Night Of Bi-Partisan Comedy, A Clamorous Salute to St. Patty's, Teddy's Funk Pad, The UCB Thanksgiving Parade, Celebrity Barf Machine, her solo sketch show Burning and Yearning with Gilli Nissim, and her favorite, Dads and Grads, a show where several UCB improvisors got to perform with their dads and everyone smiled a ton. Gilli also hosts an interactive and cathartic late night-style talk show called We're Gross with Gilli Nissim. She now not only wants to be a writer/actor, she also wants to be a late night host. Dammit. Small screen credits include Childrens' Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV, You're Whole and a slew of web commercials that she isn't sure how to find. She has also lent her voice to the animated shows Friendship All stars of Friendship for L Studios and Pillow Fight for Adult Swim. Gilli performs stand up comedy all over LA including the Comedy Store, The Ice House, The Westside Comedy Theater, Flappers, UCB and would love to do your show as well thank you for asking! Her other interests include dining out at reasonably priced restaurants with large portion sizes, petting dogs from up close, and waving at dogs from afar. @time2getgill
