Sara Shelton is a writer, director, and comedic storytelling performer.
She got her start as a writer at creatively led agencies such as Droga5 and Johannes Leonardo, working on brands ranging from Prudential to Pure Protein. During these years, she simultaneously pursued improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade, and was accepted into their Advanced Study program in 2010. Her interest in studying comedy eventually led her to the lesser known art of story performing. She’s been performing in New York and Los Angeles since 2011, and has opened for 20 time Moth Slam winning Adam Wade in his solo show “Adam from New Hampshire”. She’s also made multiple appearances at Eric Vetter’s “SUPER Storytellers” and Asher Novek’s “The Whole Story” and “So What Happened Was” in NYC.
Shelton’s perceptive nature paired with her improv background brings a unique voice to her commercial work. She firmly believes there is truth in comedy, and vice versa. She’s drawn to what’s real, what’s relatable, and what’s funny because it’s true.
