She is a former writer for The Onion and The Onion Book of Known Knowledge: A Definitive Encyclopaedia Of Existing Information and regularly contributes to The New Yorker and McSweeney's.
Brooklyn Based said Moore's comedy "deftly highlights the absurdity of everyday life, with just the right touch of self-deprecation," and addressed her multiple careers, saying, "Moore has, by her own count, "like 35 careers," and is jealousy-inducingly good at all of them." Vogue also praised Moore for being a polymath, calling her a "jack of all trades.".
Moore was previously the Sex & Relationships Editor for Cosmopolitan, where she was the driving force in making the site LGBTQ inclusive, which led to her winning a GLAAD Media Award in 2016. Moore was also listed as one of Pride's 67 Young Queer People Who Are Changing The World, saying, "Lane Moore is creating queer visibility in Cosmopolitan and in an industry that are too often heteronormative in their representation. It's also awesome that Lane is funny as hell." Moore has also written for GQ, Elle, Esquire, Marie Claire, Seventeen, and Ms. Magazine.
In 2011, she published a comic book based on her experiences in Los Angeles called Smarty Pants that is sold throughout the United States and Canada and was featured at Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco.
In late 2015, Moore created popular blog Male Feminists of Tinder ' which was immediately praised by numerous outlets, including New York Magazine who called it "brilliant...a perfect snapshot of a particular, awkward moment in culture and technology," Paper Magazine called it "the best Tumblr ever", BuzzFeed called it "a gift," and Cosmopolitan called it "hilarious...drop-dead funny."
In 2017, Moore created "Hotties of MTV's Next," where she posted her collection of profiles from MTV's Next. The page was praised by news outlets such as The A.V. Club who called it "a time machine that highlights an undocumented era when collars were popped, tips were frosted, and farting was its own kind of cultural currency." Cosmopolitan called the page "perfect" and called Moore a "genius." Moore also appeared on @midnight with a segment based around the account which Chris Hardwick called "amazing."
Moore is the creator and host of Tinder Live, a live improvised comedy show in New York City where she goes on the popular dating app Tinder (application) and interacts with Tinder matches in real time. During the show, Moore projects Tinder profiles in front of an audience and panelists help her dissect profiles before swiping left (no) or right (yes).
The New York Times called it one of the best comedy shows in NYC, describing it as "truly addictive entertainment...[it's] ingenious. Moore transforms the banter on a dating app into compelling long-form improvisation. Ms. Moore, a cagey and humane performer, has developed an instinct for turning the raw materials of sexually charged chat with ordinary strangers into honed and generous jokes. "Tinder Live" has a comic momentum and energy that is unusual. The way she manipulates tone and pace reveals an artist supremely confident in her form, not to mention a flirt par excellence."
Moore's comedy show was called Best In Indie Comedy by The Village Voice, saying "Tinder Live With Lane Moore is a gonzo romance extravaganza...with a treasure trove of ridiculous tips, tricks, and swipe etiquette...It's a ridiculously good time and restores your faith in digital hook-up culture." and Time Out, said "We love comedian Lane Moore's show, Tinder Live, where she fires up her Tinder account and lets audience members help choose who to swipe right on and what to say to them—sometimes she even calls them and tries to get them to come to the theater! The show is always a hilarious time." HelloGiggles.com said "smart and hilarious writer/comedian Lane Moore's comedy show...has all the addictive, fun qualities of a television game show. One of her show's segments include going through Tinder profiles with the audience to come to a vote on whether to swipe left or right. This could be this generation's version of The Dating Game." Brooklyn Magazine said of Tinder Live, "With clear eyes and a skeptical heart, Lane Moore delivers the gift that is Tinder Live!, which should help any of us who have submitted to using the app (or, as Moore calls it, "Where sadness goes to fuck") feel immeasurably better about it."
Tinder Live has been praised for its positivity, with Vice (magazine) saying, "Moore expertly steered the crowd from mean-heartedness to substance with each match." Brooklyn Based similarly said, "In anyone else's hands this show could feel mean-spirited, or perhaps like an invasion of privacy, but Moore makes it cathartic, a bracing comedic espresso shot." CBS called it one of the five best comedy shows in NYC and Brightest Young Things called it "the greatest show on earth."
New York Magazine listed it as one of the best comedy shows, saying, "With enviable bravery, host Lane Moore utilizes Tinder to find herself a date...hilariously assessing the worthiness of profiles."
Vulture listed Tinder Live! in a guide to the best NYC comedy shows along with legendary shows like Assscat 3000, Whiplash, and the Comedy Cellar.

The show follows two low income, freelancing women in their 20s navigating gender identity, feminism, Craigslist jobs, and sexuality in New York City.
The show received positive reviews from After Ellen, Autostraddle, and Curve Magazine where critic Amanda Guilford wrote that Gold Stars "brings to the screen an unlikely friendship that draws you in and makes you feel like you're watching your own life" and stated the web series "smacks of clever banter and amusing quips that shows two people making the best of situations in order to remain the people they want to be."

It Was Romance
Lane is a vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who performs under the stage name It Was Romance, which Oxygen describes as a "high-energy rock band." Before it had even been released, Pitchfork listed her self-titled debut album as an album to watch and Bust magazine called them the Best Band of 2015. The Village Voice premiered their first single, "Philadelphia," on their website, calling the song "mysterious but undeniably attractive. It evokes feelings of loneliness with a danceable beat, not unlike a somber nighttime walk home on wet roads, with colorful, joyous city lights reflecting like a black mirror" and praising the album for its "glittering instrumental aspect and Moore's velvety vocal delivery make the rest of "It Was Romance" saunter around like the life of the party, occasionally winking just to make sure you're hooked."
Paste Magazine described their sound as "hearkening back to a Dig Me Out era Sleater Kinney, Moore's expansive sound covers love and all its mishaps with a catchy, blast loud and sing proud thoughtfulness. Blending garage rock with soul and experimental undertones, It Was Romance...walks multiple genres with a deft grace to mirror Moore's bubbly wit and eye-catching presence."
BuzzFeed included their first single "Philadelphia" in their Songs You Need In Your Life This Summer and Curve Magazine said the band can "kick some serious ass when it comes to tight lyrics."
The Laugh Button praised Moore's voice, saying, "[Moore's] incredible voice, smoky and edgy and closely resembling the kind of stuff soulful grunge bands aspired to back in the 90s."
The band released a music video for the first single "Philadelphia" in June 2015. The video was directed by Moore and was an homage to the John Waters film Cry-Baby, with Moore playing Johnny Depp and Traci Lords. The Advocate praised the video, calling it "awesomely creative...the video will have you singing all day." Curve Magazine called the video "badass" saying it's "sure to leave its mark in your brain" and the video's John Waters-inspired feel would have "John Waters, himself, drooling all over." Out Magazine praised the video for exhibiting "that riot grrrl, DIY aesthetic with a splash of humor. The song is a catchy tune that you'll want to add to your summer playlist."
The music video for "Hooking Up With Girls" was released in late 2016 on the front page of Nylon (magazine). The video is a shot-for-shot remake of Fiona Apple's "Criminal" music video. Moore starred in and directed the music video, and Nylon (magazine) praised her for going "above and beyond to recreate the iconic video, searching for similar houses and costumes. Spoiler alert: She even added '90s MTV title cards."
The video was quickly picked up by numerous media outlets, including Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Vogue, The Huffington Post, The Guardian, VICE, BUST Magazine, Refinery 29, and The Onion's AV Club, who said of the video "when [Moore] sings directly to the camera, it seems like an overly intimate confession." New York Magazine praised Moore for the video, adding, "It's that weirdness that makes Moore so charming, and maybe the best homage to "Criminal" is one where the artist is unapologetically herself." The New York Observer said, "The classic shots are all there: Lane and Fiona both writhe in satin camisoles, looking up at the camera with bright, tear-red eyes; cowering in a closet with hair in twin braids, singing from a bathtub between a partner's legs; and in that iconic opening, pointing a camera at the audience: the voyeur becoming the viewed. [And] goddammit this song is catchy.".
Moore won a 2016 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Magazine Overall Coverage for her groundbreaking work at Cosmopolitan. She was also nominated for a 2016 White House LGBT Champions of Change award.
She previously played with Luscious Jackson and composed original music and the theme song for her web series Gold Stars.
