Meg Favreau is a writer, artist, performer, food enthusiast, and old book collector who grew up in northern New Hampshire and now lives in Los Angeles. She’s also an impressively capable and accomplished person considering how many full-size fake body parts she regularly carries in her purse (hands, primarily).
Meg writes TV comedies and genre dramas; most recently, she was staffed on a TBA animated series for Hulu. In 2018, she created and wrote the Brat digital series Total Eclipse (a tween dramedy with the one thing most tween dramedies have been missing: fantasies of living on the moon). Her humor writing has appeared in The American Bystander, Real Simple, The New Yorker, and McSweeney’s; and Meg also has over a decade of experience in writing, performing, directing, and teaching sketch comedy at theaters including UCB, iO West, The Nerdist School, and the Philly Improv Theater. In 2017, Meg was selected for the Nantucket Episodic Comedy Colony with her pilot Let’s Shop (where it changed titles to The Value Shopping Network).
Meg also has a background in food and weird history writing, and her cookbook with photographer Michael Reali, Little Old Lady Recipes: Comfort Food and Kitchen Table Wisdom, was released in November 2011 by Quirk Books.
