I’m Ariel Leaty: a comedian, actress, model, and writer based in New York City.
Ariel Leaty is a comedian, actress, model, and writer from New Jersey (sorry, not sorry). Born to strict Hispanic parents in a suburbs, she learned to use humor in order to weave in and out of spaces where she didn't quite belong. Not long after Ariel began her comedy career, she was diagnosed with Leukemia. Now in remission, some claim comedy cured her; she says that’s a stretch.
Ariel's standup explores her hardships with relationships, battling depression, grappling with religion, and being racially ambiguous. Don’t worry, she’s also got a sex joke or ten up her sleeve. She is currently producing and co-hosting a popular monthly stand-up comedy showcase called Culture Vultures, with a focus on women, POC, and LGBTQIA acts. In her limited spare time, she also co-hosts a podcast called What’s Eating You? with fellow foodie, Bryan Yang.
In addition to being a rising star in the tri-state stand-up comedy scene, she graduated from the prestigious UCB Theater for improv, writes sketch comedy, and is a trained voice actress. Ariel spends her days Tweeting hot takes into the abyss, waxing poetic about late 90's/early 00's hip-hop and R&B, and sharing her comedy with anyone who will listen. She's an act you won't soon forget.
