Caryn Ruby

Actor | Comedian | Writer | Script Supervisor

Caryn Ruby’s work has been featured on “Good Morning America” “The Wendy Williams Show,” and at Chicago’s famed Second City. “Baked Goodes,” the15-episode web series she co-created, & co-starred in, was listed in Newsweek as “what to watch on marijuana’s biggest holiday” - right between Comedy Central’s “The Time Traveling Bong” and Snoop Dogg’s “Grow House.” In 2020, her screenplay “Daphne’s Revolt” was awarded semifinalist in Women In Media’s Cameraderie Act 1 competition, her pilot “The Selfless Activist,” semifinalist in the Filmmatic Comedy Screenplay competition, and the comedy sketch she co-wrote and stars in, “Poverty Tourism” premiered at the Houston Comedy Film Festival as a finalist for Best Dark Comedy Micro Film. Caryn discovered her passion for socially-conscious comedy in her home town of Chicago. She’s performed at Snubfest, Chicago Sketchfest, Gilda’s Laugh Fest, Zanie’s, and Jokes and Notes, and shared the stage with Tiffany Haddish, Donnell Rawlings, and Iliza Schlessinger among others. Active both in front of and behind the camera, Caryn is also an accomplished Script Supervisor. She’s worked alongside Oscar and Emmy award-winning crew on award- winning projects, including the Women In Media Camaraderie initiative GRAND PRIZE WINNING FILM “Blood and Glory” which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, and “Growth,” a short film written, directed by, and starring Allison Miller (“A Million Little Things”). An advocate for Women’s empowerment, she is proud that 90% of all projects she has worked on have been directed by women, with virtually 50% being women of color. Before comedy, Caryn earned degrees in Psychology (B.S.), Exercise Science (B.S.) and Kinesiology (M.S., University of Michigan), became a nationally-qualified bodybuilder (!) and moved to Los Angeles to become a chiropractor. However, once she realized her knack for cracking jokes was way more fulfilling than cracking joints, she quickly switched gears and began studying and performing at The Second City, The Groundlings and comedy clubs across the country and twice in Singapore. The multitalented, multifaceted comedienne is currently polishing a television pilot and preparing to launch her new podcast, “Script Supervisors: Unsung Heroes of Film & TV”
