NYCF: An Evening With Morgan Murphy

Morgan Murphy, writer for CBS's 2 Broke Girls, performs an evening of hilarious stand-up comedy.

Morgan Murphy was born in Portland, OR, but she moved around frequently before settling down in HOLLYWOOD-adjacent. She landed a writing job on Comedy Central’s “Crank Yankers“, which led her to become a writer on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” where she has performed twice as a stand-up. In September of 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine included her in their “New Wave of Comedy”.

She moved to New York in 2009 and spent two years as a writer on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”. In 2011, she moved back to Los Angeles, where she’s currently a writer for CBS’s “2 Broke Girls”.
