Lindsey Reckis was born in the small town of Springfield, Vermont. She went to Jr. high in Boston, Massachusetts and then attended high school in Oregon.
While in high school, Lindsey started performing funny skits about the school’s weekly events that quickly became more popular than the events she was promoting. It was then that she discovered a love and talent for comedy writing and acting. After high school, Lindsey lived and traveled in Europe for a year.
She then moved to Los Angeles and began to study acting and comedy. After taking the entry-level sketch-writing class
at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade, she was immediately invited into their coveted master class with Matt Besser.
In 2008, Lindsey and a few other talented friends formed a production company and sketch group called Reckless Tortuga. They filmed some of Lindsey’s sketches and put them up on YouTube. In a matter of months, Reckless Tortuga became a sought-after, viral sensation. Their sketch-comedy shorts and web series views soon became equal to the viewership of most cable shows, with over nine-hundred thousand views a week and over twenty-eight million total views… and counting. With Lindsey’s viral popularity, when she isn’t writing, acting in or producing weekly content for Reckless Tortuga, she can be seen in other web series and sketch shows.
