The Art of Comedy with guest Katie Ford

Join our new host Maggie Cassella and producer Shannon McDonough as they sit down with writer and producer Katie Ford. Katie is best known for co-writing and co-producing the hit film, Miss Congeniality, starring Sandra Bullock. More recently, she wrote the Emmy-nominated movie, Prayers for Bobby starring Sigourney Weaver, and was Co-Creator/Showrunner of Working The Engels starring Andrea Martin that was on NBC and Global for a brief, bright summer in 2014.

Katie started as a standup comic and actress before switching to writing full time (when faced with going to a Diet Pepsi audition in a bathing suit or staying home writing in sweatpants, the decision pretty much made itself.)

She went from standup to playwriting, then at age 21, was hired for the NBC sitcom Family Ties, where she wrote 10 episodes of the series the Writers Guild of America recently voted one of the 101 best written television series. She also served as the show’s Story Editor and then Executive Story Editor.

She was Producer and writer on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. Additionally, she penned the teleplay and Co-Executive Produced the acclaimed miniseries, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie for DISNEY/ABC. On the action side, she was writer and consulting producer for CBS’ action comedy, Chaos and wrote for the Transporter television series….and a bunch of other stuff.

Ford recently returned to her roots as a standup comic, performing with writer/actor Diane Flacks in a show entitled “Bits and Pieces” and her successful solo show “The Value of Trying” was recently performed (April 2015) as a part of Soulo-Theatre’s “best of Canadian Solo shows” at Theater Lab in NYC.
