Megan Stalter of Snacks vs. Chefs rose to prominence during the outbreak.
During the lockdown, the actress, comedian and writer from Los Angeles rose to prominence. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1990, and she often based her jokes on the residents of the state. Stalter was raised in the Pentecostal Church and attended Wayne High School, where she participated in theater. She attended Sinclair Community College and Wright State University before leaving to pursue her acting career. She moved to Chicago to pursue comedy full-time, before moving to New York in 2019 to further her career. As she built a reputation for herself, she gained global attention with her “vital escapist humor” during the COVID-19 epidemic.
Vulture and Variety called the Snacks vs. Chef co-hosted a 2020 Comic to Watch, and Jason Zinoman of The New York Times called her the “most necessary voice to emerge during this anxious, lonely period.” Her hilarious popularity helped her land many television roles, including HBO’s Hacks, which earned her three comedy Emmys in 2021. The host of Snacks vs. However, Chef said in a virtual interview with The Guardian that she is safest on stage.
She continued and said:
“Apart from being around the people I love, I’m never happier than when I’m on stage.”
She continued that even before the epidemic, she never felt sick on stage and never thought about anything that made her unhappy. Being on stage makes her “all zen,” and she knows it’s where she’s supposed to be. As the career of the Snacks vs. Chief presenter shortly before the epidemic took off, she never expected that filming funny movies while cooped up at home would be the benefit that would allow her to fully experience celebrity.
In June 2022, the comic appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where she discussed Hacks, Church Girls and other topics with guest host Chelsea Handler. She told Chelsea that when she was younger, the whole family would produce humorous films and skits, with her acting as the director. The “crazy” comic will now join fellow comedian Hari Kondabolu on Snacks vs. Showcase Chef in the new culinary challenge where the chefs use their “inner food scientists” to put their own spin on famous snacks. Snacks vs. Chef premieres on Netflix on November 30.
