Monique is a Los Angeles comedian, writer, and actor. She's performed and taught with The Second City out of Chicago, as well as at iO, The Annoyance, Laugh Out Loud Theater, ComedySportz, and in festivals and shows around the country as an improviser, sketch comedy, and standup performer.
Now in LA, she's currently working on a secret project with WhoHaHa (coming soon!) and is a writer for Reductress Magazine, as well as for multiple corporate clients. She recently joined the WGA when she was hired as a freelance writer for the upcoming sketch show special DISNEY CHANNEL HOUSE PARTY.
Request writing samples, including her original pilot "The Miseducation of Lauren Hillard" which was a top finalist in the Episodic Comedy Screenwriter Colony and a quarter-finalist in the WeScreenplay Television Competition.
You can also catch Monique hosting the 2 Girls 1 Pup Show "Stuck At Home," the weekly IGTV show where she interviews and plays games with comedians and their dogs. (The former live show was named one of the "10 Best New Stand-Up Shows in LA" by LA Weekly.)
"Real Live Women!" is original sketch comedy by actual women who are definitely not aliens from another planet. Written and performed by Monique Madrid and Alison Tafel ("Fallon Tonight," "BoJack Horseman") and directed by Jessica Eason. Keep an eye out for the RLW sequel!
