Joanna Castle Miller is a writer and comedian whose work has appeared on Fortune, Time, NBC, VH1, E! Entertainment, PBS, and Food Network. Her experience ranges from an Al Roker investigative report on childhood obesity to choosing which pageant contestants to include in a Miss USA reality miniseries (#femaleempowerment…).
A political junkie at heart, Joanna loves riffing on the day’s news. Her political parodies have appeared on Funny or Die, WhoHaha, and The Advocate. She is the writer and producer behind Red, White, and Dad – a web show chronicling the 100% true story of her dad’s campaign for President of the United States on the Constitution Party ticket. Critics have called the show “charming and earnest” (Fortune) and “funny and informative” (The Daily Dot).
Other current projects include the upcoming Fox News the Musical, her new play SH@MED, which premiered in 2016 at Georgia Southwestern University, her short film Ash (currently in post-production), and WTF Lucy, a modern feminist take on every episode of I Love Lucy. She can also be seen around town performing standup, sketch, and the occasional show tune.
Recent work includes the web series Sorta My Thing (featured on Funny or Die), the Cannes-featured short film Where You Go (assistant producer), and the Emmy Award-winning New York Philharmonic’s Sweeney Todd (assistant producer), produced by Live from Lincoln Center and starring Emma Thompson.
Born and raised in Memphis, Joanna is a classically trained vocalist and studied musical theater at NYU’s CAP21 studio before graduating summa cum laude from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a concentration in dramatic writing and journalism.
She enjoys good bourbon, bad words, and quality time. Joanna and her husband live in Los Angeles with their dog Henry.
