Laura Stubbs is a Canadian writer and comedian from Toronto, Ontario. She graduated from Queen's University, where her research on Eating Disorders and Body Image was published in the Canadian Journal of Counseling and Psychotherapy.
She completed the Professional Program in Screenwriting at UCLA, with a focus in comedy. To raise money for tuition, she organized a stand-up show, "Laughs for Laur", where she came out to all of her friends and family... after charging them $25.00 to be there.
Laura uses her academic background in psychology to create complex characters by critically examining human behaviour and relationships. By writing through a comedic lens, she makes difficult topics such as eating disorders more digestible to an audience. Laura hopes that by sharing her unique yet relatable queer stories, she can give a voice to those who are unheard.
