Character Videos & Digital Presence
Hi! I’m Magdalena (Magda) Cychowski – a stand-up comedian, writer, and tall person. I received my BFA in Drama (theatrical, not personal) from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. I perform stand-up around NYC and my character videos have been featured on WhoHaha and Funny or Die. In November of 2019, I wrote and produced my one-woman show My Mom’s Funeral (about my actual dead mom) at The PIT’s SOLOCOMM fest. It’s currently being workshopped as a full-length piece for… whenever the world opens again. My writing has been featured in Modern Loss, Bust Magazine, and my thesis play Little Invisible Backpacks (also about my dead mom, sensing a trend?) was featured at the Midtown International Theatre Festival and the Riant Theatre’s Strawberry One-Act Festival, for which I won the award for Best Director. You can find more character/sketch videos on my website magdalenacychowski.com.
