Louie Pearlman has been an innovator and a maverick of the New York City comedy and arts scene since 2002.

During his career he's taught comedy, public speaking and team building across the continent with students of all ages. Louie is currently a workshop facilitator and brainstormer for branding companies Brand Now! and Leap to Brand.

Louie's officially-licenced Archie Comics/Riverdale stories "Nice Girls Finish Last," “Nice Girls Finish Last 2: Hell Week” and “Riverdale’s Worst Nightmare” are currently available on the platform Yarn. Louie also co-hosts and produces the pop culture podcast XOXO Riverdale, and the live streaming radio show Kick The Jukebox. His pieces have appeared on Gizmodo, Rebeat Magazine and Tough Pigs.

For over ten years Louie has been a producer, director, performer and teaching artist with the nationally recognized arts education company Story Pirates, where he's performed nationally in theaters, music festivals and schools.

Earlier on in his creative life, he jump-started the careers of Ezra Miller (Justice League) and Griffin Newman (The Tick) as the Artistic Director of the Comedy program at Buck's Rock Creative and Performing Arts Camp. They're both playing superheroes in movies and TV shows now, so that's pretty cool.
