Corporate Erin is the brainchild of Chicago-based comedian, Lisa Beasley, who makes regular appearances at the Laugh Factory in Chicago. Corporate Erin has recently gone viral on Tik Tok for her insanely hilarious, yet accurate, depiction of a general corporate manager, a character she says she developed when she took a 5 year break from comedy to work a corporate job because…well, she wanted MONEY.
Lisa Beasley’s Tik Tok video views are astronomical, with some Corporate Erin comedy sketches receiving more than 1 million views.

Corporate Erin is often clad in an oversized sweater, with disheveled hair and an exaggerated ‘corporate accent’, as she makes her routine Zoom calls to address employee concerns. Comments on Corporate Erin’s videos are often described as “triggering” for the mass collective of corporate girlies who watch Lisa Beasley’s satire for fun.
