Morgan Murphy was born in Portland, OR, but she moved around frequently before settling down in HOLLYWOOD-adjacent. At 18, Morgan started doing stand-up at coffee houses, youth hostels, and laundromats. She landed a writing job on Comedy Central's "Crank Yankers“, which led her to become a writer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where she has performed twice as a stand-up. She soon came to be called a "hot, young, up-and-comer" because she was not old and was not doing poorly. Variety named Morgan a Top 10 Comic To Watch in 2010. In September of 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine included her in their “New Wave of Comedy”.
She moved to New York in 2009 to become a writer on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” where she spent two years. In 2011, she moved back to Los Angeles, where she’s currently a writer on the hit CBS sitcom “2 Broke Girls”.
