Dominique Nisperos is a comedian and sociologist in New York City. She writes for the sketch team Glamour College which slays on the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre’s Maude Night. She also writes and performs with New York City’s longest-running independent sketch team Bridge and Tunnel.
Her comedic sensibilities are if a disgusting pubescent 12-year-old boy got really into intersectional feminism and Audre Lorde. She has written for Blue Man Group, American Danger, and is the creator and host of Comedy for Justice. She has been featured on FunnyorDie, Scary Mommy, Seriously.tv, TV Land, ABS-CBN Global, and at Toronto Sketch Fest, SF Sketch Fest, the LA Improv Festival, Steel Stacks Comedy Festivals and many venues across the United States and internationally.
She performs regularly with the all people of color team The Code Switch: “A team of fiercely funny POC performers [who] improvise sketches based on the awkward moments and strange social negotiations of intersectional life” – Time Out New York. Her artistic mission is to create comedy that uplifts and heals people, particularly women and people of color.
