Julie Klausner is a New York City based comedian and writer whose credits include articles for the New York Times and television writing for The Big Gay Sketch Show and Robert Smigel's TV Funhouse on Saturday Night Live.

In addition to writing she has appeared as an on-air personality on various VH1 clip shows such as Best Week Ever and bit parts on Saturday Night Live and Late Night With Conan O'Brien. She has amassed a cult following by producing a variety of internet based series and sketches, notably as one-half of "Julie and Jackie" (with comedy partner Jackie Clarke). These include Welcome to Our House, What's What? and Cat News.

With Clarke, Klausner performed a monthly show called Obsessed at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York, and with co-star and co-creator Rachel Shukert, she appears in the live monthly soap opera, "Wasp Cove" at Comix. She co-wrote and appeared in the show Free to be Friends, a pastiche of 1970's children's television programs like The Magic Garden and Free to Be… You and Me, which ran at the UCB Theater before it became a selection of the New York International Fringe Festival. She has a comic book series called Animal Party.

In 2010 Klausner released her memoir, entitled I Don't Care About Your Band, for Gotham Books.
