Erica Lies is a writer, improviser, and teacher in Austin. She’s been writing and performing comedy for over a decade, having studied improv at Magnet Theater, The Institution Theater, and ColdTowne Theater. Erica performs with the groups snapshot, Miller & Lies, and ColdTowne’s TourCo, and she can be seen in ColdTowne’ flagship show, Stool Pigeon, every Sunday at 8:30.
