For over ten years, Becker has loved bringing her raucus point-of-view comedy to audiences all over the continent. Curve Magazine called her “hilarious” and “rebellious” when they named her one of America’s Top Ten Funniest Lesbians (she tied for 8th with the fabulous Lily Tomlin). She was a semi-finalist on NBC’s hit show Last Comic Standing. Toronto’s Xtra! recently lauded her “brash and personal humor.” As the winner of the Queen City Comedy Competition, she took the largely male dominated genre by storm. The ArtVoice paper in her hometown of Buffalo, known for its flourishing and dynamic comedy scene, has named her the city’s Best Stand-up Comic two years running. It’s no surprise. After all, Kristen Becker is screamingly funny. Her wide-ranging comedy is rowdy, political, personal, intelligent, and unrelentingly honest. Her international fan base spans the United States and Canada. She kills everywhere from mainstream comedy festivals, to top comedy venues, to small town bars, to college campuses, to benefits – you name it, she has brought the house down. A comedian who happens to also be an out lesbian, Becker consistently wins the hearts of all audiences, straight and gay alike, with her unapologetic humor. Her childhood, divided between the rust belt and the deep south, has left her uniquely able to connect with all manner of people. Becker’s ability to win the affection of such a wide range of audiences is due to her understated southern charm juxtaposed against a raucous and powerful persona. She is truly a comic of the people.
