Julie Donofrio has been making people laugh for years, sometimes on purpose. She began performing at an early age, appearing in her first commercial when she was 3. More recently, she’s been working as a comedian and improv actor, doing stand-up, improv and sketch comedy everywhere from New York City comedy clubs to area colleges to the beer tent at the Monroe County Fair. She has performed and directed in the Toronto and Rochester Fringe Festivals, and her television credits include a guest-starring role in the pilot “Finding Fabulous.” Julie is also a children’s entertainer and educator, and cannot contain her love for teaching. She has worked with Cub Scouts, Young Audiences of Rochester, and libraries, schools and other children’s organizations, and was the recipient of a Big Pencil Award from Writers and Books in 2015.
