Provincetown Comedy Shows

Women’s Week brings a great line-up of great comedic talent!

Kristen Becker

Who: Becker’s wide-ranging comedy is rowdy, political, personal, intelligent and unrelentingly honest. A comedian who happens to also be an out lesbian, Becker consistently wins the hearts of audiences – straight and gay alike – with her unapologetic humor and understated southern charm. A childhood divided between the Rust Belt and the Deep South left her uniquely able to connect with a wide range of audiences.

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.”
