Bridey Elliott

Bridey Elliott is an actress and comedian in NYC. She studied acting and playwriting at the National Theater Institute in 2011. She weighed 8 lbs and 11 oz at birth. After theater school, she moved to LA briefly for a production assistant gig, but realized she was a horrible driver, and put countless in danger. Back in New York, Bridey began performing comedy and attempting paying her rent. Among others, she has worked at Film Forum, Kim's Video, and the Paley Center- environments that inspire her and don't pay that much. She is part of the Maude team "Absolutely" who performs sketch monthly at UCB. You can also catch her stand up at various venues all around town. She enjoys life and we're very happy she got out of that damn with only minor injuries.
