Sally Brooks is a nationally touring stand-up comedian, writer and podcaster whose personal stories of misadventure and fun-loving, smart-assed nature were honed in the back rooms of bars in Cincinnati, Ohio and now make her a favorite at the top clubs and colleges across the country. She is the cohost of Dumb Love, a comedy podcast about the dumb things people will do for love. Her first album, "Brooks Was Here" was released by Blonde Medicine and debuted at the top of the Apple Comedy charts. According to Pandora Radio "Sally Brooks unleashes a relentless wit on her debut album." The Laugh Button said she is "one of the hardest working comics in the business" and Axs.com called her a "rising star." 

Her second album, "Street Bird" came out in October 2022 with Helium Records. The album debuted at #1 on both Apple Music and Amazon. Showbiz Monkey called the album "a refreshing breath of fresh air," saying Sally is "fast, smart, and funny as all hell."
