Kelsea Bauman-Murphy is a filmmaker and New Yorker who was technically born and raised in Los Angeles. She is the digital producer on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, where she gets to write fun things for the internet — the single greatest medium.

She recently starred in the independent feature film Vanilla, which won awards at festivals across the country. People said some pretty nice stuff about it!

Kelsea was previously an associate producer for HBO’s Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas, where she got to travel the US working on pieces about social justice and systemic inequality.

When not producing or acting, she directs comedic music videos, writes satirical articles, tells nice stories about Zac Efron, and upsets Elon Musk. She’s repped by Stephanie Nese at Venture Entertainment Partners.


Kelsea is extra proud of these pieces she helped pitch, produce, and write.
