Cole Escola

Cole Escola currently plays Billy in Amanda Kramer’s new film, Please Baby Please, which is out now on VOD. Most recently, Cole played Chip Wreck on HBO Max’s Search Party and Chassie Tucker on At Home with Amy Sedaris, for which they also won a Writers Guild of America Award for their work on the show as a writer. Cole’s solo sketch show, Help! I’m Stuck!, had sold-out runs in New York and L.A. as well as a 12-city tour. During quarantine, Cole released a scrappy, lo-fi version of the show as a special which they filmed alone in their apartment. It was raved about in the New York Times. Cole’s other TV writing credits include Hacks (for which they won two more WGA Awards), The Other Two, Ziwe, Difficult People (on which they also played the role of Matthew) and Life & Beth. Other TV acting credits include Mozart in the Jungle, Nurse Jackie, Law & Order, Man Seeking Woman and Netflix’s The Characters. They also co-created, wrote, and starred in the lo-fi, cult-hit TV show Jeffery & Cole Casserole. (Photo by Mitch Zachary.)
