Emily Menez is a Filipina-Spanish writer originally from Overland Park, Kansas, which is the coolest part of the Midwest (do not challenge her on this). She has written for CBS, Funny or Die, Nike, IFC, and McSweeney’s, amongst others. Her original plays and sketch shows have been performed in NYC, including Margene Salt, which ran off-Broadway in the fall of 2017. Emily was one of seven writers selected out of a pool of 900 candidates for NBC’s 2020 Late Night Writers Workshop.

In high school she received second place for “Best Personality,” so her personality is good, but also not gold prize quality. You can follow her @emenez2. She also owns @emenez1, but forgot her password.

This is a photo of her talking about nachos on Rachael Ray. You can tell by Emily’s hands that the subject matter is both expansive and critical.

And this is a photo of Emily talking about coffee alternatives, which are just okay. You can tell by these two national appearances that she has a wide range of expertise.

But wait, what’s this?

She can also make a very dumb facial expression in a national Panda Express ad? The talent level here is through the roof!
