Katie Johnston-Smith' obsession with Tom Hanks worries her mother. As a Pittsburgh native, she grew up encouraged to intensely love the things she loves in a loyal and bleeding-heart manner, for the entire world can be painted in black and gold (and it mostly is... right?). After graduating from Belmont University (Nashville), Katie moved to Chicago to further study comedy. You may recognize her from her roles in Attend The Tale Of Danny Tanner: A Full House Musical (DJ Tanner/ co-writer), Cupid Has A Heart On (ensemble), The Second City Training Center’s Musical Improv/ Sketch House Ensemble Infinite Sundaes/ Song Co (ensemble), The Verse: Another Firefly Story(Katie Fly), The Dude Abides (Waitress/ Pingirl), Musical Of The Living Dead (Fran), or that production of Fiddler on the Roof (all but Tevye) she and her cousins did in her grandparent's back yard. She is also the founder of the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival. Follow her on Twitter/ Instagram @GenericBrunette!
