Nora Nolan

writer Trial & Error, Paradise PD
Nora Nolan grew up in a perfect little town called Maplewood, NJ and she never shuts up about it. Nora learned to push comedy boundaries in her large Irish Catholic family where, in order to get a word in edgewise, you either had to lead with a case of Bud Heavy or an edgy punch line. Since Nora didn’t get a fake ID until she was 19, she spent years refining the latter. Nora was arrested for her fake ID when she was 20. The ruthless judge sentenced her to 100 hours of community service, so Nora volunteered for the Episcopal Church in Newark, NJ, and honestly, it wasn’t that bad. Therefore, Nora did not learn her lesson and, to this day, still uses a fake ID. Nora earned her chops as a stand-up comic in NYC and Washington, D.C. before moving to LA and earning a spot in the Warner Brothers Writers’ Workshop class of 2016-2017. She was a Staff Writer on NBC’s Trial and Error and is now a Story Editor on season two of Netflix’s Paradise PD. Nora is also currently developing an original animated show with Warner Brothers. When not writing or performing, Nora is drinking IPAs, crushing Sudoku puzzles, and watching offensive amounts of television.
