For years Buffalo comedian Kristen Becker has been holding down the fort when it comes to promoting the local comedy scene. From her longstanding Doin’ Time comedy showcase (6 years), to her championing and GM role at Helium Comedy Club, her travels have taken her to the edge and back, only to want more for Buffalo… and from Buffalo.
Now Kristen has announced another comedic twist in her latest adventures. She is establishing a new stand up comedy course that teaches both the basics of stand up routines, and the tricks of the trade for those who want to pursue comedy as a career. Whether it’s joke writing, crafting a performance, or learning the ins and outs of the business, Kristen is looking to get you and your funny bones up on stage.
Teaching is just one part of Kristen’s comedic passion play. Buffalo’s iconic comic is still touring the comedy circuit (from a recent stint in Provincetown Massachusetts to an upcoming Bible Belt tour), but when she’s home in Buffalo she wants to light some fires under a few stuck feet. Kristen is a professionally trained performer (School of Comedy in Toronto), which means that she’s serious about promoting laughter wherever she goes.
If you’ve ever thought about joining the ranks of Buffalo’s funny men and women, now is the time. Don’t be shy. Email Becker@kristenbecker.com for more info about the class, and hopefully we will see you up on stage yucking it up in not time flat.
