Film & TV Producer and Author
Amy Solomon, ’10
“I was so glad to get to college and be like: ‘a tiger!’” Lab alumni Amy Solomon, ’10, said during her “Roast of Your Teenage Self” comedic interview as she spoke about going to a high school where the mascot was a color.
Currently residing in sunny Los Angeles, Solomon is a film and TV producer who has worked for shows such as HBO’s Silicon Valley and Barry. She also currently develops new content for film and television in her role running the production company owned by Alec Berg, who is most known for his roles as writer for the sitcom Seinfeld and executive producer of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
After graduating from Lab, Solomon attended Princeton University where she graduated with a degree in journalism. It is there, she shared with the Princeton Alumni Weekly, that she became “inundated by funny women.”
Taking her cues from those funny women’ (and from the groundbreaking book Titters: The First Collection of Humor by Women), Solomon most recently curated and edited Notes from the Bathroom Line: Humor, Art, and Low-Grade Panic from 150 of the Funniest Women in Comedy. The collection is composed of a variety of original satirical and humor pieces—artwork, short stories, cartoons, essays, and poetry—from some of today’s most cutting-edge and hilarious women and non-binary contributors in comedy. Published in March 2021, the back-cover blurb of Notes from the Bathroom Line proclaims that “there are no limits to how funny, bad-ass, and revolutionary women can—and continue—to be.”
The Lab community agrees and considers Solomon among them.
