Hayley Karl is a comedic writer living in Brooklyn, New York, and she took a winding road to comedy. She began her artistic career as a photographer, which gradually gave way to her life as a documentarian. As a documentarian, she directed/produced the political short Electoral High School, which explores the strengths and weaknesses of the Electoral College by employing its conventions in a vote for prom king and queen.

In 2013, Hayley performed at Gotham Comedy Club's StoryTalks; afterward, a man who had written on one episode of Seinfeld told her she was funny. So, she started doing stand-up and training and performing as an improvisor at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in 2014, and she's since studied sketch writing at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and Magnet Theater. In 2015, she made it Facebook official as part of the Magnet House Sketch Team, Dreadful Affair, and is now a member of the famed Dinosaur Jones.
