Claire Sundbye is a Chicago based comedian and producer.  Her animated, quick-witted and conversational style is undeniably entertaining! Claire’s material speaks to her unique experience as a queer woman, growing up with a mentally ill parent, being raised in Kansas, and more.  Coming from a lifelong theater background, Claire found her way into standup through performing sketch & improv at the iO and Second City.  She’s performed at Laugh Factory, Zanies Comedy Club, Comedy Bar, House of Blues and Lincoln Lodge. She most recently was the feature for tiktok sensation Chrissy Chlapecka at Zanies.  Above all else- Claire has the unique ability to merge her distinct voice and style with the necessary needs of the audience and environment. This has opened her up to many opportunities. She’s performed at nursing homes, colleges, corporate events, bachelorette parties, and even for a nudist colony!  Follow her on instagram, @LilShrimpsnack, to see clips, highlights, and showdates!
