Count Dookie

Count Dookie, better known as the grown man who still eats Lunchables, is owner and operator here at Word Brothel. With his ragtag team of miscreants, his goal is to spread truth so profound that it shatters the very fabric of reality. When he is not fanning the flames of justice and all that is good, he is acting like a buffoon on a stage or the CTA. Most importantly he wanted us to mention that the first peanut butter and jelly sandwich he ever ate was on June 5, 2009.

Katie O'Reilly
Editor In Chief

Pretty Miss Katie O’Reilly is the Editor in Chief and Produces the Word Brothel live shows: Fükhaus. She has been working with Word Brothel ever since it was a dingy website. You can find her performing at the iO Theater with her Pool team Lindsey Logan’s Beach Club, performing with Farrell Walsh on the team Two Cuties, creating digital art on Instagram @yourpuffmama, or in Max’s phone under “Sweet Little Baby Girl.”

Jason Elewski
Creative Director
Waking up from a 20-year food coma with nearly every body part replaced by a cybernetic prosthesis, Jason has dedicated his gifts to write, perform, and write satirical content for for the good of nobody.
Josie Benedetti
Josie Benedetti once lived on top of spaghetti, all covered in cheese, but felt a change coming on suddenly when a nearby virus monger blessed himself all over. Now she roams the city of Chicago as That’s-A-Spicy-Meatball Man, curing heartburn and dumping spaghetti sauce whenever she goes. You might be confused as to whether she is a poor meatball, an Italian man, or a full grown woman covered in ragu practicing comedy and you would be right on all three accounts.
Simon Tessmer

Simon Tessmer is a Chicago improviser and writer who performs regularly with the independent team Stepmother Goose. Other than writing for Word Brothel, Simon's favorite activities include eating turkey sandwiches, passionately raving about the Mission Impossible franchise, and struggling to be a functional social human.

Megan Schmidt
Graphic Designer
Megan has been using her art to con people into friendship since she learned how to draw Neopets in second grade. She has created graphics for top-secret government reports, signed design NDAs for crazy fancy tech companies, and even helped rebrand her friend's uncle's New England lobster cart. However, she considers this unpaid graphic design gig with Word Brothel to be her greatest artistic achievement yet.
Emily Serruto

Beth Ann Powers

Beth Ann Powers is a playwright, screenwriter, and snarky little rascal. She is currently a grad
student at Carnegie Mellon University which she only mentions because she wants you to know
she’s smarter than you. Her work has been put places by people and it’s all very impressive.
She’s cool and you should like her. Please?
(Oh, and she also has a theater company. Lookie! Lookie! https://www.slaphappystudios.org/)
