Comedian, Writer & Actor
As seen on Just For Laughs, Hulu, Apple TV & more! Cara Connors is an LA-based comedian, actor, wrier and multifaceted homosexual with an ass that won’t quit. Cara stars on Dating #NoFilter on E! and her feminist investigative comedy series, Cara Takes Up Space, is now streaming on OUTtv. In 2018, she performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and in 2019 debuted her hour long stand up show at the New York Comedy Festival as a part of the Upright Citizens Brigade series. A headliner at comedy shows across Los Angeles, Cara has quickly developed a cult following after her first national stand up tour, Straight for Pay.
After a successful 15 city run of sold out and standing room only shows at some of the most highly regarded indie comedy venues in North America (The Hideout Chicago, Union Hall NYC, PianoFight San Francisco, Fallout Theater Austin, Comedy Bar Toronto, Dynasty Typewriter at the Hayworth) Connors is taking her hour back on the road for an expanded summer tour. Her solo show, Straight for Pay, will bring her unique brand of high energy, self-effacing and unapologetically feminist and queer comedy to an additional 15 cities throughout the U.S and Europe.
Connors is a graduate of the Second City Conservatory in Toronto and has trained extensively with the The Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade. She is the creator, writer and star of two original series for CBC Comedy, the comedic voice behind the social media for Workin’ Moms and a writer for Brat TV. Cara is also the creator and star of a 90 Day fiancé impersonation series on Instagram with nearly half a million views. Cara is a fearless weirdo and enthusiastic creator of chaos known for her physical performances, earnest yet unhinged original characters, and absurdist takes on the struggles of modern life.
