My Hometown
My Hometown
New York City: The Big Apple. The Concrete Jungle. A Catcaller's Paradise. Each year, millions of people from all over the world decide to start their lives in New York City, but where did they come from? And what did they leave behind? Well, that's what native New Yorkers Ilana Michelle Rubin and Lana Schwartz want to find out. Each month, they invite some of the city's funniest comedians to talk all about their hometowns. Were there football games? Pep rallies? What about Makeout Point? They want to hear it all, and so does their audience.
Ilana Michelle Rubin
Ilana Michelle Rubin
Ilana Michelle Rubin is a writer, stand up comedian, and improviser who often wonders how Drake spends his days off. Her work has been featured on Reductress, Daily Dot, and Play Too Much. In addition to being part of Nanners Comedy, she is also a writer and actor for the web show Deada$$, a parody late night talk show.

She loves Twitter and Instagram much to her own detriment, so please follow her on both platforms (please). Ilana previously worked at MTV, where she gained professional producing experience. These days she spends her afternoons babysitting, raising New York City’s youth to the best of her ability, while focusing more of her time on her comedy career.

One time in high school, her friends paid her $10 to dance silently for half an hour, and that is something she would happily do again today.
