Smart, natural, and easy to work with, Emma Lieberman has played roles from Shakespeare to sketch comedy. She is one of the newest members of the Hot and Funny sketch comedy group in Los Angeles, and was recently seen in the mockumentary short "Confessions of a Teenage Cannibal," which played at the On Vous Ment International Mockumentary Film Festival in Lyon, France. Her own short, "Lesbihonest," which she wrote and produced in addition to starring in, is also in the festival circuit, having screened at the Roselle Park Short Film Festival! Additionally, she has played theatrical parts like Perdita and Bianca in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale and Othello, respectively, as well as Elizabeth Lavenza in Frankenstein, giving her a good grounding in her signature intelligent ingenue type.
Emma received her Bachelor of Arts from Brandeis University cum laude, having double majored in Theater Arts and Creative Writing. She has also attended Queen Mary, University of London, which has the #1 ranked school in the UK for drama by the National Research Exercise. Before that, she practiced writing and performing stand up comedy from a young age through high school at the Kids 'n Comedy workshop in New York. Most of her post-collegiate studies have been at The Barrow Group under the tutelage of Seth Barrish and Lee Brock, and the Upright Citizens Brigade.
Despite Emma's background in theater, she has been working primarily in film and new media. In addition to "Confessions of a Teenage Cannibal" and "Lesbihonest" she has been in dozens of short films on both coasts, and a couple of feature films, including the indie feature Tales From Shakespeare which is slated to come out later this year. She also writes and produces her own work, including "The Subscription" and "The Slightly Awkward First Date of John and Joanna" on top of "Lesbihonest". When she can, however, she likes to return to her performance roots. From established plays like Seminar (Kate), Almost, Maine (Marvalyn), and Measure for Measure (Lucia) to new works like Magic? and A Kreutzer Sonata, she believes strongly in the power of the theater.
A rabid travel lover, Emma has experience with all kinds of cultures of the world, and loves to see and try new things. She studied for a term in England, at Queen Mary, University of London, and while she was there she also took a tour of several European countries. From Greece to Canada, from Israel to Peru, Emma has traveled extensively, and has become somewhat of an expert at moving around and trying everything new that she can.
In addition to the work that is soon to come out with Hot and Funny, Emma will soon be travelling to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to be in a new play, and is excited to continue spending her first winter in the warmth of the southern United States!
