Vickie is a comedian, actress, writer, filmmaker, and more!
Vickie Eisenstein is originally from the Chicagoland area, but she’s prone to fits of wanderlust. After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in China Studies and Economics, she left the U.S. for East Asia, and nothing was ever the same!
While studying Korean at Yonsei University in Seoul, she ended up on one of the most popular talk shows in Korea, Misuda! It was then that she was bit by the performing bug. She went on to host travel shows, star in cheesy reenactments, and get into all sorts of shenanigans on variety/talk shows.
At some point, she took a detour to spend a year in LA pursuing fame, glory, and a tan, but she still managed to return to Chicago vampire-white. It was then that she set about devoting herself to the pursuit of the most serious and highly valued of all the arts: comedy. She graduated from The Second City’s conservatory and writing programs, as well as programs at iO Theater and ComedySportz. (Check out her online resume!)
As of late, she has been slightly preoccupied with building a small, but mighty internet content empire! She writes, directs, produces, hosts, act ins, and markets all of the video content on her YouTube channel!
Recently, Google flew her out to New York for the YouTube NextUp program and she got the chance to spend a week studying and filming at the YouTube Space in New York!
You can find her around the Chicagoland area performing, improvising, doing standup, and sketch comedy live. Feel free to take a gander at Improvised Jane Austen’s Website. She loves performing with those girls!
