Chloe grew up in the Bergen County town of Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, according to Variety. She went to college at New York University and studied at the Gallatin School of Individualized Design. The school allows students to design their own majors, and the comic said she got “basically just an English degree.” After graduation, she stayed in the city where she regularly performs comedy.

Besides making people laugh, one of her interests is crocheting, and she’s pretty good at it! She has an Instagram account dedicated to her crocheting projects, including hats, sleeves, and head coverings.
