Writer Biography - Mona Shahab

Mona is a comedian, writer, and director from Los Angeles. She hopes to one day be able to pay her rent doing this stuff.

Mona's been an artist forever. Her first passion was directing, then painting, then writing, then dancing, then music, then performance art, and then back to writing, and directing. For Mona, being a multi-hyphenate is like being able to wear many hats. Some people just have the right head shape.

Mona is passionate, stubborn, and eccentric...and she has her big fat Persian family to thank for it.
