Biography

American comedian and author, who developed a one-woman show about her experiences with agoraphobia and panic attacks in 2009. Her book based on the show, Agorafabulous!: Dispatches from My Bedroom was published in 2012.

Her previous work includes a stint as a citizen journalist for MTV covering the 2008 United States presidential election as part of MTV's 2008 Emmy Award-winning Think campaign.

Benincasa co-hosted the Cosmo Radio sex/relationship talk show Get in Bed on Sirius XM Satellite Radio until September 2010. She then started a podcast with Marcus Parks called "Sex and Other Human Activities" which features a sex questions segment (using questions sent via email and Formspring) that launched in February 2011.

Along with her blog, Benincasa filmed a series of interviews titled Tub Talk with Sara B. The series featured Benincasa in a bathtub with various comedic personalities, including Reggie Watts, Jonathan Ames, and Andy Borowitz. Benincasa has since revamped the web series on her YouTube account as Gettin' Wet with Sara Benincasa.

In September 2008 she began producing a vlog in which she parodies the role of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. She is particularly attentive to Palin's Midwestern accent.

BORN IN 1980" [2], "I was born in NJ ❤️ but I went to school in NC and visited SC every summer since I was small, pretty much. Fam in TX" [3], "I was born in Somerville, and lived in Hillsborough for three years and then in Flemington for 15" [4], "It is 10/25 on the East Coast, where I was born. Therefore it is my birthday" [5].
