Fielding Edlow is a writer, performer and stand-up comedian based in Los Angeles whom Variety calls “a gifted scripter with virtuoso material.” Along with Iliza Shlesinger and Fortune Feimster, she was recently named one of the “six funniest women in Los Angeles right now” (Pure Wow). Her recent half-hour special Can’t Say Sl*t is now streaming on Amazon (Comedy Dynamics).
Past credits include: ‘Roxy’ on BOJACK HORSEMAN, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA, GET SHORTY and she almost got a lap dance from Channing Tatum in MAGIC MIKE (but was cockblocked by her pregnancy). She hosts her own hit monthly show “Eat Pray F*ck” at the Hollywood Improv which features regulars such as Eddie Pepitone and Laura Kightlinger. Her solo show, COKE-FREE J.A.P., was performed in the NYC Fringe Festival (Backstage’s “Best of Fringe award”) and then had a four-month, sold-out run in LA at the McCadden Theatre and was subsequently developed as a half-hour comedy pilot at Showtime. She is the creator and star of the award-winning web series BITTER HOMES AND GARDENS and is currently shooting Season 2 (the quarantine version) with her husband Larry Clarke.
She is a native New Yorker. And that’s the actual city. Not Teaneck. Not “North Valley Stream.” Not Weehawken-adjacent.
Fielding Edlow has fought her way across the dystopian hellscape of LA to say the unspeakable about her husband, her "friends" & her 7 year-old "nightmare".
If we can't say sl*t anymore, what are we supposed to call it, the "friendly years"?

Nichols and May.
Bitter Homes and Gardens ? is an award-winning web series (best comedy in NY Film Festival) starring real-life married couple Fielding Edlow (BOJACK HORSEMAN) and Larry Clarke (TWIN PEAKS). It is about a narcissistic, desperately ambitious, completely unfiltered couple who are both trying to “win the relationship.” Fielding is an up-and-coming podcaster with negative subscribers and Larry is a balding, middle-aged, self-obsessed character actor whose last role was the traffic cop on Moesha. They are a filthy Nichols and May and “they don’t spar like prizefighters cause they’ve already taken the gloves off.” They are one dead cat away from divorce and their primary love language is long term creative gaslighting. Fielding is gunning for an “open marriage” when Larry hits 50 (but just for her).
Other characters include their overly peppy estate lawyer (DAVE KOECHNER), their sagacious couples therapist (JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS), Fielding’s fruit delivery crush (CHRIS FAIRBANKS), their owl-beating Q-Anon neighbor (BILLY GARDELL) and Fielding’s high-powered, hugely successful Netflix exec best friend (CHRISTINE WOODS).
