About Tara

Tara is a sketch comedy writer and creative writer for BuzzFeed, based in NYC. She lives in fear that the soft, delicate voice of Ken Kratz will forever haunt her dreams, and wishes she never watched Making A Murderer.

If she doesn't become a back up dancer for Milly Elliot's come back tour, she will go ahead and eat all of the emergency PopTarts that have been tucked under her pillow.

Unique traits: Hangnail on my pinkie.

Stand Up and Eat shines light on the meal we all have in common but never talk about: the one you eat alone, over the sink. Hosted by Daisy Wall, a lovable snark with a heart of gold, in each episode, we visit an up-and-coming comedian's kitchen, get a lesson on how to assemble their go-to 'over-the-sink' snack, and wash it down with a beverage pairing. Secret's out, there are others out there just like you. Written by Anonymous
