Hannah Klein was born and raised in New York City. She attended NYU, majoring in dramatic literature, intending to be a serious playwright when she grew up. However, she was shitty at being serious and found her love of comedy while interning in the writers' room at SNL. Since then, she has written for "The Detour" Season 3 on TBS, has been accepted into the New York Television Festival for her original dramedy pilot script "Everything's Fine" (based on her personal struggle with bipolar disorder) and wrote/directed/starred in a half hour pilot entitled "Kill Yourself." When she's not writing scripts that worry her parents, you can find her in the mosh pit.
