By day, Coppock works for The Princeton Review as a managing editor who oversees the test prep books team. She’s proud to help students of all types achieve their educational goals (and she always keeps an eye on where Hamilton lands in the rankings.)
Bustle called her one of the 8 Funniest Feminists on Twitter and TheFrisky ranked her one of the 25 Funniest Feminists on Twitter. She is the creator of @NYTVows, the popular parody Twitter and Instagram account that lampoons The New York Times Wedding section.
Coppock appeared in the Amazon Prime sitcom “Red Oaks” and has been seen on Bravo, Lifetime, VH1, CollegeHumor.com, and RooftopComedy.com. She is also the host of “Two Wick Minimum,” America’s favorite and only podcast about candles. Coppock is the co-producer and co-host of Bitchcraft, a campy, quarterly variety show at Sid Gold’s Request Room in NYC.
In 2013 she published her debut book, The New Rules for Blondes (HarperCollins), a collection of personal essays celebrating and subverting the blonde stereotype. Her writing has also been featured on Jezebel, McSweeney’s, Reductress, The Loom, xoJane, Huffington Post, TheFrisky, and she was a creative consultant to TVLand’s “Younger.”
Her debut standup album, Seen Better Days, was released in 2018 by Little Lamb Recordings and hit #1 on the iTunes comedy chart.
