Katie Gillespie was born and raised in Wisconsin where she ate a lot of cheese. She got her start in stand up while living in Chicago and relocated to Vermont for mountains and a job. Mostly the mountains though. She uses comedy to tackle subjects like death and dying. So, very light and breezy. She has performed at Zanies (Chicago), the Lincoln Lodge (Chicago), Two Hour Comedy Hour (Chicago), the Kates (Chicago), the Vermont Comedy Club (Burlington), and various coffee shops and bars all over the Green Mountain State.
