Allie Goertz is a musician and comic whose obsession with pop-culture and feelings has born an album of nerdy love songs, a Rick and Morty concept album, two popular TV-themed podcasts (Everything's Coming Up Podcast and Fire Talk With Me), and a troubling Twitter addiction. Since releasing her first crowd-sourced album in 2013, she's been touring the country opening for and playing alongside her favorite comics and musicians. She currently works in hazy Los Angeles as a social media producer [email protected]. You have seen her at SF Sketchfest, SDCC, New York Funny Songs Fest, IFC's10 Comedy Musicians You Need To Know, and that vegan cafe in Highland Park.
