Naomi Ekperigin

One moment listening to lively, chatty Naomi Ekperigin, and it's clear: This woman knows her voice and how to channel it. In a rapid stream of sing-song verbiage, she covers topics from her Jewish husband (that is, her "Jewboo") to advice for white girls gleaned from true crime shows ("Stop with the jogging at dawn and dusk. If the light is low, you do not go.") While she has already appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and in her own Comedy Central Half-Hour, stand-up is just one of her talents. As a writer for Broad City and Difficult People, Ekperigin also has her finger on the pulse of the motormouthed, pop-cultured, urban-dwelling protagonist. She was tapped to create the new Jessica Williams show for Comedy Central, and though it didn't get picked up, she has more than one way to make her mark in showbiz in the coming years.
