Reena Calm was made in Israel and raised near Boston. Obsessed with comedy she moved to Chicago and made a name for herself as a favorite in one of the best comedy cities in the world. She's become one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest, and is now a nationally touring headliner. Reena is a wordsmith who’s material is autobiographical, silly, and charmingly inappropriate, pulling from a lifetime of questionable choices.
Speaking of questionable choices, she is currently the only woman in the U.S. who lives on the road as a full-time stand up comedian. Living out of a converted minivan, this pun-slinger travels the country on her signature #Calmedy tours. She's on a mission to make people laugh in all 50 States (just 2 more to go). Full of wild tales from the road, Reena's debut album "CALMEDY" was #1 on the comedy charts, and can be heard on Sirius XM.
Reena has been a frequent guest on WGN Radio, featured at Limestone and so many cool festivals, was on the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and was named Comic of The Week on The Jackie & Laurie Show. She's opened for legends like Arsenio Hall, Maria Bamford, Eddie Pepitone, Laurie Kilmartin, Doug Benson and many more.
Check out her book “Once A Pun A Time…Legend of a Sighs Queen” on Amazon. Reena’s been called "a one-woman punk band of a comedian" by Jeff Bailey, "everything comedy should be" by Sam Tallent, one of "the best independent comics in the country" by Clearwater Comedy, and “also terrific” by the Chicago Tribune. She hopes to do a show in your town soon, and would love to sleep in your finest parking lot. Follow her on Instagram to ride along on her travels @ReenaCalm
