Throughout her career, comedian Stephanie Blum has brought audiences into hysterics with her make-no-apologies approach to stand up. As a mother of three and former school psychologist, this street smart Brooklyn native has a strong opinion on just about everything, especially parenting, marriage and her most guilty pleasure, pop-culture.
When not busy making people laugh at comedy clubs in New York, L.A. and Las Vegas, Stephanie appears on TLC’s newest comedy series, #WhatSheSaid as well as Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, HBO Comedy Minutes, and Country Music Television’s Top 20 Funniest Videos. TLC and Discovery both recently discovered Stephanie’s web series, Moms Rule! and contracted with her to appear in two network series.
In her one woman stage show, When I Cough, I Wet Myself, her motivational style inspires audiences and she contributes her humorous writing talent to Child Magazine, Parents Magazine, The Hot Mom’s Handbook, The Comedy Thesaurus and more.
Stephanie was crowned Ladies of Laughter’s New York’s Funniest Female, chosen for HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, and recognized by The New York Times as “a woman with a sitcom life,” consisting of her mentally ill brother and hypochondriac father.
Stephanie Blum holds a New York State license in School Psychology. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the State University of New York at Oneonta and a master’s degree in Education as well as a Certification in School Psychology from Brooklyn College.
