BanterGirl's founder Trish Nelson is a producer, performer, writer, and (according to her taxes) a waitress living in NYC. She’s produced weekly and monthly shows throughout NYC and beyond working with many performers including Women of Letters, Dave Hill, and John Hodgman to name a few. She has also helped to put together live shows and tours across the country for Broad City, Impractical Jokers,  Jim Jefferies, Key & Peele, Bill Burr, Chris Hardwick, and Amy Schumer, as well as many others. As a career waitress, Trish has used her tip money over the years to invest in women and the projects that she believes in. With BanterGirl, her hope is that other women across the land will be able to see that no matter where you come from, or where you currently are in life, you do not have to wait around for someone else to give you permission to execute your dreams. Through BanterGirl LLC, Trish is committed to providing platforms and creating work that focuses on women, while launching diverse female talent through projects that help shed light on women and the female voice.
