Hallie Haglund was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, where the spectators of her comedic musings were often limited to members of her older sister's glass animal collection. She was thrilled to reach a wider audience in college, as a member of Yale University's all-female sketch group, the Sphincter Troupe. After graduating in 2005, she lived briefly in L.A., working as a page for NBC Studios and studying improvisation at UCBTLA. Hallie returned east in January of 2006 and is currently employed as the writers' assistant at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. She is thrilled to be a member of the Harold team, Raynard and of the independent improv group, Shark Tank. Hallie loves to write, and contributes as often as she can discipline herself to her journal, her gmail account, her phone's text messaging system, OCWEEKLY in Orange County, and Radar magazine.
