Adrienne Cooper

Funny Female Foodtreprenuer

Location icon United States

I wanna make you laugh. I wanna make you eat. I don't wanna make you laugh while you eat, though--that's dangerous.

I've created a show that combines my love of food and funny. It's called The Food Funny. It's looking for a new home at the moment.

I also run a Food Tour Company in the wonderful city that I call my hometown, New York--perhaps you've heard of it. A food tour is where you learn about cool stuff while you eat. Often on your feet.

When I'm not on stage or in the streets, I write for myself and sometimes for others, like Damascus Bakery, I love the Upper West I am happy to provide specific samples upon request. On Comedywire, Pitch and a #Binder

Also, sometimes I do the acting thing.

Best Upper West Side Brunch Spots - I Love The Upper West Side

The great thing about brunch is that it works for nearly any kind of crowd-even those with kids. While they marvel over a pile of pancakes, parents can start knocking back bloody marys and mimosas without any judgment, as early as 11am!

10 Female Owned Restaurants | I Love The Upper West Side

As a self-described Funny Female Foodtreprenuer, I'm always appreciative of my fellow badass broads who take on the daily challenges involved with running a business. Especially in an industry that's been so dominated (and frequently sullied) by men for the last several centuries-I guess that's most industries.
