About

Deirdre Manning is a New York-based actor and occasionally, a New York-based human as well.

Actor. Writer. Funny Lady.

Deirdre Manning was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in Florida. Now she lives in NYC and does a lot of improv comedy.

Deirdre got the performing bug from the theatre, as many suburban children do. She attended the University of Central Florida, and graduated with honors with her BFA in Musical Theatre and minors in Environmental Science and Dance. She trains at Upright Citizens Brigade and is currently a part of the Academy. She is a very proud member of Actor’s Equity Association.

Deirdre also loves to write and direct. She’s wicked “sm-aht”, as they say in Boston, so that helps. Among other stuff, she co-created, produced and starred in a YouTube web series, The Short Life of Diane Hunte, which debuted in March 2019.

Deirdre is grateful for her Mum and Dad, who have (relatively) calmly supported her through the craziness. Deirdre is a big fan of her twin brother, Joseph, who is in Boston saving the world from environmental destruction. In her free time, Deirdre enjoys cooking, baking and mostly, eating. She also likes reading, hiking, volunteering for non-profits, particularly dog-related, and of course, Netflix-ing. She is a millenial, after all.
