Esther Povitsky, aka Little Esther, is a fixture of the LA comedy scene; best known in Australia for her breakout podcast Weird Adults With Little Esther, where she finds out what makes her fellow comedian friends ‘weird adults’.
Esther’s irreplaceable quirk and charm has made her a stand-out among her comedy peers, and has seen her make regular television appearances on New Girl, Parks and Recreation, @Midnight, Key & Peele, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!
While other children watched cartoons and played video games, Esther was watching Saturday Night Live, and was starving to see Second City shows every other weekend. Esther considers herself a ‘Theatrical Comedian’ with comedic obsessions and references from the LA comedy scene.
In 2012, Esther co-created and starred in the MTV docu-comedy Little Esther, which chronicled her life as a young comic, and her relationships with her mostly-male contemporaries.
The following year, Esther performed as part of the New Faces Showcase at the 2013 Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Esther’s vibrant web presence has resulted in a recent partnership with Refinery29.com, bringing her stage show ‘What’s in Your Bag’ to the masses, and a part in Netflix’s Judd Apatow produced series, LOVE.
Esther also wears a mouth guard due to her grinding her teeth at night. She often speaks in a baby voice with the mouth guard in. Fresh from recording her debut album, Esther will bring her revered stand-up to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in 2015.
Don’t miss this opportunity to witness a comedic star in the making perform her signature idiosyncratic millennial brand of humour live.
