Gilli performs with the wild and wonderful improv team Winslow. They can be seen at the show Winslow presents, Hi Honey! at UCB Franklin every Friday at 9:30pm.
Gilli also hosts an interactive and cathartic late night-style talk show called We're Gross with Gilli Nissim so now she wants to be a late night host. Dammit.

Interests: Dining out at reasonably priced restaurants with large portion sizes, petting dogs from up close, and waving at dogs from afar. @time2getgill
