Ariel Elias

Ariel Elias is a comedian living in New York City. Growing up, this Kentucky Jew made everyone laugh at her bat mitzvah, and the rest is history. Today, her comedy is a fun mesh of unique, personal stories mixed with witty and wry observations.

Described as “a sly young comic from Kentucky” by the New York Times, Ariel has also been featured in Rolling Stone, the Washington Post, and on Good Morning America. As a traveling stand-up comedian, she performed on the set of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, was named a “New Face” at the 2021 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, as well as one of the Best Comedians of 2022.

After catching Jimmy Kimmel’s attention with a viral stand-up clip that displayed her cool, calm, and hilarious composure, he invited Ariel to make her late night television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! which received over one million views on YouTube. In the same week, she also appeared for an interview on the daytime talk show, Sherri.

When not performing, she’s probably petting a dog or struggling through a crossword puzzle.
