Walker Hays is a comedian, actress and writer. Based in NYC and hailing from Baltimore, MD she now prefers to live as a gypsy and not be in any one city for more than 72 hours. She can be seen at festivals and in clubs around the country from D.C. to Chicago to L.A. and is part of the Underwear Comedy Party tour and the Refried Comedy tour. Walker has performed at the Improv, Laugh Factory, Gotham and can be seen weekly at home favorites Stand Up NY and New York Comedy Club.
When not doing stand up she can be found modeling and onscreen. She’s had roles on series for Fox, MTV, NBC, Discovery and just wrapped supporting roles in two pilots and the lead in an indie film. She stars in the cult favorite web series “Milgram & The Fastwalkers”, a noir soap opera about aliens that’s anything but comedic and often requires her to look very unphotogenic.
Traveling, sports (both playing and yelling vigorously at unknowing athletes on TV) and the quest for the perfect martini are a few of her other favorite things to enjoy. She is rad, ask anyone except people who don’t think she’s rad.

The Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce is a multicultural membership association of entrepreneurs, business owners, and civic leaders in the most diverse community in New York.
Our Chamber represents the fastest growing and most dynamic business community in the United States. Attracting firms from around the world- two dozen languages are spoken by our businesses- we are already an international trade hub and the fourth largest commercial district in New York. As the center of small business activity in the metropolitan region- 90% of our 6,000 firms have less than 10 workers- we are also the new face of American entrepreneurship. Yet, many of our small business owners face great hardship and often do not get the assistance and resources they need from our government.
With your support– we have accomplished much- establishing Flushing’s first community night market at Flushing Town Hall, creating a free English program with Monroe College, connecting local businesses with hundreds of skilled workers at our Green Job Fair, advocating for better transit and infrastructure investment, establishing a new model for entrepreneurs to build credit. Join us as we celebrate these accomplishments and more!
