To the probable surprise of everyone she went to high school with, Becky Braunstein was recently featured in Teen Vogue, in an article which insisted that each one of her life experiences "deserves [its] own television show". Called a “comedy tsunami”, an “audience favorite”, and “the best thing that’s ever come from Alaska… like, by far” by the Portland Mercury, Becky is a fast-rising standout performer with fresh energy and wide-eyed enthusiasm that is impossible to ignore. She grew up on a mountain in Eagle River, Alaska where she had no one to talk to, moved to Portland, Oregon after being diagnosed with metastatic thyroid cancer and almost losing her voice forever - but she didn’t lose it, and now she won’t shut up. Becky has performed at nearly every top comedy festival in the country, including the Big Sky Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, All Jane Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, the 208 Comedy Fest, Beast Village Comedy Festival, and many others. Her comedy has appeared on SiriusXM, IFC and Audible, and her first TV special for the new Epix series 'Unprotected Sets', produced by Wanda Sykes & Page Hurwitz premieres in Fall, 2018. Her Instagram posts from the Treefort Music Festival were featured on Uproxx. Becky hosts a spectacular show called 'Becky with the Good Jokes', which has featured appearances by Matt Braunger, Pete Holmes, Jamie Lee, The Unipiper, Ian Karmel, Marcella Arguello, Jenny Conlee from The Decemberists, and the mayor of Anchorage, Alaska. She competed in the National Spelling Bee in 1997, is about half fluent in German, and dreams of one day living in a house with central air.
