Biography

Minda Wei is a queer, Chinese American comedian and screenwriter from Houston, Texas. After quitting a job building the world’s #1 supercomputer, she now writes about messy, complicated protagonists making bad decisions with whip-smart humor and compassion. She used to say "my characters blow up their lives so I don't have to," but then she got a divorce when everyone in Texas almost froze to death in a week-long preventable climate disaster. Her writing explores themes of freedom, love, and the choices we make when anything is possible. Minda has won the Austin Chronicle’s “Best of Austin” Comedy Critics’ Pick, performed at SF Sketchfest, Del Close Marathon, NYC Sketchfest (and more!), and her writing has been featured in Slate, Bon Appetit, and GEN Magazine. She currently serves as a story editor on Spotify Studio’s FOGO: Fear of Going Outside Podcast and creative director to Austin Sketch Fest. mindawei.com
