Miss Merlot has made it her mission to speak up for the outcast, while drinking and slaying audiences during her comedy sets across Utah. Her passion is to fight for the gawky introvert and the awkward reprobate...all while mixing her famous cocktails in the parking lot of her next show. She happens to excel at multi-tasking. Merlot is also at her best and most comfortable as she quips on stage in between wine tastings during her performances. Her wine tastings could last from anywhere from her bedroom to the kitchen table. Miss Merlot has been known to mix up limey margaritas backstage and under duress before many a show. Merlot was the winner of the 2013 Salt Lake City Weekly Arty Award for Best Stand-Up comic. This win allowed Merlot to elevate her taste in wine, cheese, crackers and men. Miss Merlot has also cultivated an impeccable taste for high priced wine and low priced high fashion.
