Chelsea Devantez is a comedian, writer, and director from New Mexico. She is a writer on ABC’s “Bless This Mess” created by Liz Meriwether and Lake Bell, and hosts a podcast from Times Up and Spotify about fighting sexual harassment. Previously, she wrote for Mike Schur’s “Abby’s” on NBC, “The Gong Show” on ABC, “The Opposition” on Comedy Central, and “Jon Stewart’s HBO Show”. She is an alumni of the Chicago Second City Mainstage where she wrote and performed three revues and the press called her “The Michael Jordan of the cast,” and “A Tina Fey who could out drink you and kick your ass.” She grew up poor, can’t find her real dad, and was raised by her mom, weird step dads, and her mom’s hippy friends. She’s written and directed six pilot presentations and one short film, all of which she also starred in, because she is a monster.
