Hallie Haglund

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.
