who is she?

Michelle Aldridge is a Chicago-based comedian, writer, and Virgo. This Michigander has been honing her improv, sketch, writing, and stand-up skills for nearly a decade at comedy theaters (and basements) in DC, Tokyo, and Chicago.


She’s performed as a part of the Chicago Women’s Funny Fest, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Harold Team Mothership, and the Second City Training Center’s house ensemble and musical house ensemble. She has performed stand-up at the Sh*thole, Stand-up Tokyo, At What Cost, and LGBTQIA+ show Dreamboat. Her solo show the 30-Year-Old Virgo premiered at the Annoyance Theatre and was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019.  


Michelle (and her adorable rescue dog Tater) is currently seeking representation. Follow her online @gingerlymyself to see what her curly bangs look like today. Michelle is endlessly thankful for her family, friends, and cheesy potatoes.
