Tawny Newsome

Tawny is a sketch and improv comedian, who's been mainly writing and performing her work on the Second City Mainstage in Chicago, as well as with the Second City National Touring Company. She's also starred in Second City collaborations such as "The Art of Falling" with Hubbard Street Dance, and "The Second City's Guide to the Opera," starring Patrick Stewart and Renee Fleming. Other regional credits include: "The Upstairs Concierge," a world premiere at the Goodman Theatre, as well as productions at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre and Writer's Theatre. You can currently see her as Chelsea Leight-Leigh in the Seeso Original series "Bajillion Dollar Propertie$." Previously guest starring in NBC's "Chicago Fire," USA's "Sirens" and Fox's "Crisis," Tawny cultivated a cool trend of only appearing on tv while inside an ambulance.

Oh, hey, and another thing about her are all of her bands! Tawny has been a part of the incredible Chicago indie scene for the past 8 years, and she and her punk-folk cohort Jon Langford (Mekons, Waco Brothers) have two albums out together that you can buy and listen to: Old Devils and Here Be Monsters (In De Goot/ Bloodshot Records). Right now, she is losing her mind with excitement as she and Langford gear up to record their new record this fall in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with legendary producer Norbert Putnam. And if you aren't sick of her yet, her solo album Too Proud to Steal is available on iTunes, Spotify and bandcamp.
