A sketch and improv comedian, appearing as Chelsea Leight-Leigh in the Seeso Original series ‘Bajillion Dollar Propertie$’,’TvLand’s ‘Nobodies’, ‘The Comedy Get Down’ on BET, soon on IFC’s ‘Brockmire’ and ‘Sherman’s Showcase’ and as a frequent contributor on podcasts ‘Lovett or Leave It,’ ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’ and ‘Spontaneanation with Paul F. Tompkins’. Previously guest starring in NBC’s ‘Chicago Fire,’ USA’s ‘Sirens’ and Fox’s ‘Crisis,’ Tawny cultivated a cool trend of only appearing on TV while inside an ambulance.
She co-hosts the weekly comedy-meets-culture podcast ‘Yo, Is this Racist?’, as well as creating and co-hosting the limited series, songwriting collaboration podcast ‘The Supergroup’, both on the Earwolf network.
Before LA, she had mainly been writing and performing her work on the Second City Mainstage in Chicago. Or touring around with her bands (Four Lost Souls, Jon Langford) which produce quirky, outsider country music with a shifting lineup. Recently they had the pleasure of recording an album in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with some of the original Muscle Shoals Sound session players. The eponymous ‘Four Lost Souls’, (produced for former Elvis bassist Norbert Putnam) is out now on Bloodshot Records. If you aren’t sick of her yet, her solo album ‘Too Proud to Steal’ is available on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.
