Jena Friedman is an American stand up comedian, writer and filmmaker. She has been a field producer at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and has written for Late Show with David Letterman.[1]

In 2010, she received a cease and desist letter from The New York Times for parodying their wedding videos. The parody, entitled "Ted and Gracie", has since become a popular web series. In 2007, she wrote The Refugee Girls Revue, a satire inspired by American Girl dolls. The play earned critical acclaim in the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival[2] and had a successful run Off-Broadway.

In 2015, Friedman's solo show "American Cunt," premiered in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to critical acclaim. [3][4][5]
