about me


I’m Yvie Jones, a writer, comedian, and multimedia storyteller. The letter F figures prominently in topics I like to write and think about most – film, fashion, finance, food, fights, and Philadelphia, the city that invented the F word. 

I’ve been a writer, editor, and radio or Web producer for companies including About.com, AOL, Comcast Interactive Media, Curbed Philly, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and WHYY, Philadelphia’s National Public Radio and PBS affiliate. I also do stand-up and live storytelling, as well as whip up the occasional nerdy TV or film-themed infographic.

Last year, folks caught up with me at places and events including Good Good Comedy Theater, The Comments Section, THREAD at Yale, Tell Me A Story, Jane’s Walk Philadelphia, and the Wolf Humanities Center’s Rebirths, Returns, and Comebacks StorySlam.

This year, I’m cranking hard on stand-up and storytelling performances, freelance writing assignments, a one-act play, a scripted comedy podcast, and making myself look as loan-worthy as I am so I can FINALLY start the tiny house build. (I found the perfect vacant lot, so hit me up if you’ve got a spare $14,000.)

Would you like to hire me or share your own dorky infographic? Send me an e-mail or a just say a quick hello.
