Originally hailing from San Francisco, Caitlin Peluffo is a comedian currently living in Brooklyn. After a brief six-year stint in art school where she studied performative video art (no, really...that’s a thing) she has expanded her talents to the stage. Peluffo has opened for comedians like Gilbert Gottfried, Colin Quinn, and the late Kevin Meaney. She’s been featured everywhere from The World Famous Comedy Cellar and Stand Up NY in the Big Apple to clubs nationwide talking about how she came to be such a lovable loose cannon.
TV appearances include her killer national network debut on CBS’ The Late Show with Steven Colbert and Gotham Comedy Live. She co-produces two monthly comedy shows in Brooklyn; Thick Wit Comedy with Jill Weiner at the Way Station, and Comedy at Rose Gold participated in The Breakout Artist Series for Carolines on Broadway. With Caitlin, no subject is off limits, however, she did make a promise to her mother that she would never, ever discuss that one time she took those ‘whorish, yet tastefully executed’ photos for a guy she used to bang in the military. She may be a patriot, but a promise is a promise.
