Description

We will sit down and interview Mary Johnson, Associate Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility at HBO (#HBOinspires) to find out how she landed a job she loves, how comedy writing is her true passion, and her obsession for buffalo chicken everything.


Mary has been with HBO since 2012 after graduating from Rutgers University. We interview Mary to hear about the inspiring work she has done with HBO including working with Chris Gethard around mental health awareness, supporting the American Black Film festival, and other philanthropic initiatives tied to HBO programming.


Mary hails from the Jersey Shore and loves going to the beach any chance she can get. She has worked at HBO for five years in the Corporate Social Responsibility / Corporate Affairs Department. In her spare time, Mary enjoys performing improv and sketch comedy at The People’s Improv Theater in NYC. She also claims to closely identify with Cookie Monster.
