Ophira Eisenberg is a Canadian-born standup comedian and writer. You may know her as the host of NPR’s nationally syndicated comedy trivia show Ask Me Another (airing nationally on 400+ stations) where she interviews, jokes, and plays silly games with American and international celebrities.

When not immersed in trivia, she can be seen headlining across the United States, Canada, and Europe with her unique seamless blend of stand-up and storytelling to her loyal fan base of smart, irreverent comedy lovers. Ophira has also appeared at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, The New Yorker Festival, The New York Comedy Festival, Moontower Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Women In Comedy Festival and more.

She has appeared on Comedy Central, This Week At The Comedy Cellar, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, HBO’s Girls, Gotham Live, The Late Late Show, The Today Show, and VH-1. The New York Times called her a skilled comedian and storyteller with “bleakly stylish” humor. She was also selected as one of New York Magazine’s “Top 10 Comics that Funny People Find Funny,” and hailed by Forbes.com as one of the most engaging comics working today.

Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Ophira graduated with a Cultural Anthropology and Theater degree from McGill University, but now lives in Brooklyn, NY where she is a fixture at New York City’s comedy clubs including the Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, and Carolines, as well as Brooklyn’s famed performance venues The Bell House, Union Hall, and Littlefield.
