Kara Luiz is an actress, improviser, host and writer.


Currently, you can find her in a few episodes of HBOMax's new comedy, HACKS as Jean Smart's QVC co-host and in Ryan Murphy's AMERICAN CRIME STORY as a sweet talking' Texan Private Investigator. If you're really jonesing you can also currently see Kara in an episode of HEAD OF THE CLASS (HBO Max) and PUPPY PLACE (Apple+) or as the lead in the horror-comedy feature film, THE NIGHT WATCHMEN streaming on AMAZON (4.5/5 stars baby!). Soon you can catch Kara on CHAD and THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT, with Aubrey Plaza for a hot second in EMILY THE CRIMINAL and if she's lucky, you'll hear her recognizable voice in the animated show, PLUTONIANS. 

Kara is a graduate of THE GROUNDLINGS and UPRIGHT CITIZENS BRIGADE and regularly performed at UCB (may God rest Sunset's sweet soul) with her improv team, SOME KINDA MONSTER.


Her television credits include STRANGE ANGEL, THE BIG BANG THEORY, CRIMINAL MINDS, HYPERLINKED and BETAS, including series regulars on MTV’s JERKS WITH CAMERAS and DISASTER DATE. 


Kara has appeared in many commercials for brands such as MCDONALD'S, DOS EQUIS, CONVERSE, DISCOVER, JEEP, SPRINT, COX CABLE, GENERAL ELECTRIC, RAM, DISH NETWORK and NEATO ROBOTICS among others. 

In the digital space, Kara has worked with FUNNYORDIE, DISNEY, REFINERY29, BRAT, FACEBOOK WATCH, Vin De Bona's WHAT THE FAMILY and AWESTRUCK as a "comedic personality" on over 20 episodes of the series MOM TESTED. 

She was also very very close to getting on stage in a leading role with Ruskin Group Theater Company's production of GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, before a global pandemic took over.
