It's a safe bet that Faith Salie is the only Rhodes Scholar doing comedy intentionally.
Faith grew up in Atlanta and began her career in musical theatre. After graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard — where she performed the lead roles in "Cabaret," "Lysistrata" and "Grease," — Salie won a graduate scholarship to Oxford University. While completing her M.Phil. in literature, she performed at the National Theatre, London, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
"Fair Game" marks her first foray into public radio, where she's known for her irreverent yet insightful style.
Salie was a star of the critically-acclaimed improvisational sitcom, "Significant Others." She has appeared in numerous sitcoms and dramas, from a memorable turn in gold lam&eqacute; on "Sex and the City" to reaching the arcane iconic status of "tradable life form" for "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" fans. A former pop-culture pundit on a variety of VH-1 shows, Salie is also a stand-up comedian who has performed regularly at the Hollywood Improv. She is currently a monthly contributor to "O," the Oprah magazine, as an "ethics expert." She recognizes the irony in this assignment. Her hobbies include baking trash treats and giving them away before she can eat them.
