Jennette McCurdy        

Director, Host of "Hard Feelings" Podcast, Former Actress & Author of "I'm Glad My Mom Died"

New York Times bestselling author Jennette McCurdy has been showcasing her multitude of talents for over 20 years, with more than 100 credits under her belt between film and TV. McCurdy has chronicled the unflinching details surrounding her life and rise to fame in her memoir "I’m Glad My Mom Died." In the inspiring book of resilience and independence, McCurdy uses candor and dark humor as she dives into her struggles as a former child actor —including eating disorders, addiction, and a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother— and how she retook control of her life.

Having risen to fame at a young age, McCurdy starred in two of Nickelodeon's biggest shows, “iCarly” and the spinoff “Sam & Cat.” Once she graduated from those shows, she quickly broke into much more adult roles, playing the lead in the dark and edgy Netflix mystery series “Between” and R-rated Hulu comedy “Little Bitches.”

In addition to her impressive acting resume, McCurdy is an accomplished creator. Her darkly comedic one-woman show “I’m Glad My Mom Died,” which she wrote, directed, and stars in, had a sold-out run at Lyric Hyperion Theatre. She has also been published in the Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal, and hosts a popular podcast, “Empty Inside,” where she speaks with guests about uncomfortable topics in the hopes of making those conversations less taboo, all while learning and growing along the way.
