Claire Burns is a comedian and actor based in New York City with a Tennessee spirit because... she’s from Tennessee. You can catch her monthly as an actor on Upright Citizens Brigade's Maude Night with her sketch team, Presley. She traveled the country as the host of Retro Eats for Cooking Channel and has been featured on IFC, Funny or Die, Page Six, CBS Sunday Morning, and more.
