Hi, I’m Courtney Kocak. I'm a Los Angeles-based comedy writer. I also produce and co-host Private Parts Unknown (FKA Reality Bytes), a comedy-travel podcast uncovering stories of love and sexuality around the world, with my writing partner Sofiya Alexandra.
I recently had essays published in The Washington Post's Solo-ish column and The Los Angeles Times's L.A. Affairs column. I'm a sex writer for Greatist. Prior to that, I was a health and fitness contributor to Hint's branded blog The Quench. Other bylines include Bustle, where I was a regular lifestyle contributor, BUST, Healthline, HelloGiggles, and many more.
You can watch my words in action on Amazon’s Emmy-winning animated series Danger & Eggs, voiced by SNL's Aidy Bryant, available on Amazon Prime. Sofiya and I also wrote a national Get Out the Vote commercial for the House Majority PAC, starring Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz, which aired leading up to the 2016 election.
I graduated from Stephens College with my BFA in Theatre Arts, and then went on to UCLA's graduate-level Professional Program in Screenwriting. In 2018, I completed Second City's online satire writing program and AIR’s Full Spectrum Storytelling Intensive.
Would you like to hire me? Or have me on your podcast? Or send me swag for your new bikini startup? Email me! I love writing and podcasting almost as much as I love 'gramming myself in 'kinis... and that's A LOT. (Arguably too much.)
