Julie Birke is an actor and comedian born and raised in southern Illinois. Before moving to Los Angeles, the energetic, goofy midwestern gal enrolled in classes at the Improv Trick in St. Louis, Missouri, where she quickly discovered her love for improv.
Shortly after her arrival in Hollywood, she began studying at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre and completed all improv levels, studying long form improv and sketch writing. She is currently enrolled in The Groundlings school, focusing on short form improv and developing her characters in comedy. While she still loves improv, her passion is sketch; turns out sketch comedy has been calling her name this whole time (she just thought it was her stomach talking).
Julie is so excited to join Redford at iO West! She is also currently writing and performing with her all-female sketch (and sometimes maybe improv) team, “Top Bunk.”
Described as hyper, full of life and “so weird,” she plans to one day snag a lead on a sitcom and join the cast of SNL. Also, she loves cake pops, cake plops and cake in any form. Please bring these to her.
