About The Milking Cat

Founded in 2018, The Milking Cat was created by three high school sophomores who wanted to spread their love of comedy. Originally accepting submissions from all creators from its inception to Spring of 2020, The Milking Cat then rebranded as a spot dedicated to teenage comedians, showcasing high school comics who aspire to funny greatness!

Julianna Reidell

Curator

Julianna Reidell is a Curator at The Milking Cat. She tried unsuccessfully for years to create a reputation as an Angsty Teen, until she realized that being angsty is passé and switched over to humor. An aspiring author, she gained notoriety when Draft One of her first novel was forcibly seized and relocated to a superfund site due to public health and safety concerns. Forthcoming products will hopefully be better.

Arianna White

Ariana White is a Columnist for The Milking Cat. Her interests include baking, studying for the SAT, and visiting the dentist. She was recently sent away to boarding school due to her blatant disregard for authority AKA cursing at nuns and her favorite food is Tonkotsu ramen.

Dev Pandya

Outreach Officer

Dev Pandya is a marketing outreach officer at The Milking Cat. At the ripe age of 43 he looks pretty good. Being a Canadian, he came into this world with a maple syrup bottle in hand and his very own baby-sized igloo. Contrary to the Canadian stereotype, he doesn’t own a pet polar bear. Instead, a pet beaver named Dev Jr. As you can see, he is very creative. Currently he works on his basketball skills day & night because “Hockey is boring…..and I can’t play the same sport as the Leafs."

Alex Ritchey

Columnist

Alex Ritchey is a Columnist for The Milking Cat. After receiving a sign from a spirit (Adam Sandler, maybe?) through Instagram, he knew he had to apply to The Milking Cat. Interests-wise, he doesn’t have many, outside of being at least in the top 2000 coolest kids at school. Skills include being sort of funny, doing the splits, and making funny faces.
