About | Stephanie Hasz


Rising from small-town Wisconsin, Stephanie Hasz attacks the stage with the same vigor with which she attacks herself. Her raw honesty about being a single young woman with a propensity for short hair-cuts and tough-guy jackets has made her one of the loudest, most unique voices in the Chicago comedy scene. Stephanie’s fearlessness and specificity as she unravels her own life into a microphone resonates with audiences of all kinds, and has made her one of the most-discussed comedians in Chicago.

Stephanie has performed at clubs including Zanies and UP Comedy Club, as well as alternative rooms and venues such as the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the Hideout, Chicago Underground Comedy, and The Creek and The Cave. The AV Club called her one of “the city’s most exciting up-and-comers,” and Time Out Chicago described her as displaying “a fury and vulnerability rarely seen from female comics.” She has also been featured yelling about things in the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago RedEye.
