Hailing from Matawan, NJ (a town most known for being close to where Bon Jovi is from), Margot Leitman now lives in Los Angeles. After many years performing comedy in New York City, she decided it was time to move on and have more than one bathroom in her home.
Standing 5ft 6 by fourth grade, Margot developed a thick skin and a sharp sense of humor instead of learning how to play basketball. Measuring 5ft 10 today, Margot’s off beat, brutally honest, fearless comedy has earned her four Moth Storyslam wins and the title of Moth Grandslam Champion. Her true stories have been heard on numerous shows including the Moth Podcast and NPR's "Good Food." Her debut book, "Gawky...Tales of an Extra Long Awkward Phase," is available spring 2013 from Seal Press (Perseus Books). However, Margot’s most prized accomplishment remains winning $1664 on “The Price is Right.” That was…until she won a car on “Let’s Make a Deal!"
Margot appeared regularly as various characters, including the cult favorite Gynoblast on “Late Night With Conan O’ Brien,” in addition to appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!,VH1’s “Best Week Ever,” ESPN’s “Cheap Seats,” AMC, the Style Network, E!, Comedy Central, MTV, Spike TV and as a regular guest on Sirius XM Radio. Most recently, Margot played various roles VH1's “Stevie TV." She has appeared in about a dozen commercials including Lowe’s Hardware, Bertolli Frozen Dinners, and Mohegan Sun Casino.
Margot has been a performer and writer at UCB since 2002, where she co-hosts the wildly popular storytelling show "Stripped Stories," and performs regularly in its flagship show "Assscat."
