Hi! I'm Hope D!

Comedian, Educator, Writer & Co-Founder of The LaughtHER Collective

Hope D!

is a phoenix originally from the ashes of Long Island, NY currently living her suburban dream right outside of Philadelphia. After Hope obtained her Master of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership from Manhattan College, she went onto work for 6 years as a College Readiness Specialist for the Harlem Children's Zone, a nonprofit organization eradicating poverty in Harlem. 

Always one to use humor in her work, Hope began to study comedy at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre and the People's Improv Theatre. She loved it so much, she ditched higher education and the non-profit sector career for a different kind of non-profit career: Stand-Up Comedy!

Hope was selected for the Diversity Showcase in the NY Underground Comedy Festival in 2020 #ShesGay. She’s also performed on Sultry Sundays with Wink & Smile Productions, Must Love Dogs & Comedy and several showcases at The People's Improv Theatre.  Hope was in the 2022 New York Comedy Festival and she's been featured in Time Out NYBroadway World & WNYC.
