Cameron Anne Young Anastasia Esposito (born October 17, 1981) is an American actor, comedian, and podcaster known for her show Take My Wife, as well as her stand-up comedy and her podcast, Queery. Esposito substantially focuses on topics surrounding the LGBTQ+ community, feminism, social justice, and the challenges faced by members of marginalized communities.
In the fall of 2014, Esposito created a series of videos with BuzzFeed Motion Pictures titled “Ask a Lesbian”, in which she answers a variety of questions sent into BuzzFeed staff about lesbianism. The videos also featured then-partner River Butcher. In addition to touring regularly, Esposito was a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately with Chelsea Handler and used to write a regular blog on The A.V. Club.
Esposito is known for her lesbian content creation, especially hers and Butcher’s television show Take My Wife, which streamed on Seeso until the service was discontinued in November 2017. In March 2018, Take My Wife was picked up by iTunes. The show was acquired by Starz in April 2018.

On June 11, 2018, Esposito released Rape Jokes, an hour-long standup special about sexual assault from her perspective. The special was free to stream on Esposito’s website, but viewers could pay to download a copy and proceeds would benefit RAINN, the United States’ largest anti-sexual violence organization.
