Bio

Emily Maya Mills is a Los Angeles-based actor and comedian, originally from San Francisco. She's appeared on Orange is the New Black, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Key & Peele, The UCB Show, Comedy Bang! Bang!, The Birthday Boys, DICE, Childrens' Hospital, Parks and Recreation, Harry's Law, Crash and Bernstein, and some pretty silly television commercials. Her UCBTLA solo show, God Hates Figs, earned praise from the LA Weekly which called it, "...a sagacious autopsy of the frailties and foibles of life," and asked, "Could Emily Maya Mills be the next Carol Burnette?" The answer is no and the question is blasphemous, though flattering enough to fuel delusions of grandeur for years to come. She's been featured at SXSW, Sundance, The Eugene Mirman Comedy Fest, Bridgetown, Moontower and was called a "Funny Female to Follow on Twitter" by the Huffington Post. Emily attended Emerson College and once worked as a professional spokesmodel for cherry tomatoes. Her debut stand-up album, By a Thread, is slated for release in spring 2016 on ASpecialThing Records.
