Aaron Karo

Aaron Karo is an author, comedian, and TV writer who has developed half-hour series for Comedy Central, TBS, CBS, 20th Century Fox, Sony, Warner Brothers, MTV, and The CW, as well as a slightly ahead-of-its-time animated pilot for Comedy Central starring Channing Tatum, Michael B. Jordan, and Courtney Love.

His books include I’m Having More Fun Than You (HarperCollins), Ruminations on College Life (Simon & Schuster), and Ruminations on Twentysomething Life (Simon & Schuster), as well as the critically acclaimed young adult novels Me You Us (Simon & Schuster) and Lexapros and Cons (Farrar, Strauss and Giroux). He is also the co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Hidden Power of F*cking Up with The Try Guys.

Karo has headlined the Nokia Theatre and Gramercy Theatre in New York, the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, and the House of Blues in Chicago. He has released four stand-up albums, including his debut Just Go Talk to Her, which was released on Comedy Central Records in 2008. In 2010 he starred in his own one-hour Comedy Central special Aaron Karo: The Rest Is History.

Karo graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. His career began when he wrote a funny email from his freshman dorm room that spawned the long-running viral humor column Ruminations. His first job was at Morgan Stanley, before he came to his senses.
