Olivia DeLaurentis, raised in Agoura Hills, California, started writing, directing, editing, and acting in short comedy films when she was 12 years old. Her shorts went to the L.A. Film Fest, the SoHo International Film Festival, and the New York Documentary Emmys, where she also won the Mike Wallace Scholarship Award. After graduating highschool, she and fellow Agoura High School alum Sydney Heller both attended UCLA (DeLaurentis majored in Film & Television with a Screenwriting Concentration), and launched their sketch comedy YouTube channel, Barely Legal Comedy, on which they write, produce, direct, edit and star in sketches that specialize in fast-paced dialogue and subverting gender stereotypes with absurdist humor. From 2016-2017, the duo then won several live comedy competitions, wrote and performed for After Dark with Julian Clark, a monthly show produced by Second City and streamed on Amazon, and completed a live run of a two woman show at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood. They also wrote, directed, edited and starred in their own 8 episode web series, Sugar Babies. Olivia has also acted in Netflix’s hit series Prank Encounters, Fox’s The Cool Kids, and Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger.

 

In 2019, Olivia and Sydney then sold Apocalypse Goals, ten-episode original comedy series about surviving an alien apocalypse with a basic millennial skillset, to Snapchat. Syd and Olivia created, wrote, directed, edited, and starred in the Snapchat series, which garnered millions of unique views in its first season, and was picked up for a second season of fifteen episodes. They also star in Unpolished, an online series they co-host for Vin Di Bona Productions Digital Studios. Vin Di Bona has also bought two new shows from the duo, Make It Fashion and Just Peachy that will premiere on the AFV Family Roku channel. 

 

Most recently, Syd and Olivia sold the first season of a new Snapchat Original series, Stir Crazy, which is a ten episode "social distancing" comedy that the duo will be producing remotely during quarantine. The series premieres on the Snapchat app in April 2020. Recently having been represented by Gersh, Syd and Olivia have also written a pilot that they are preparing to pitch to production companies and networks soon.
