college comedian kristen beckerCollege Comedian Kristen Becker

One of Buffalo’s best comics, Kristen Becker is an out lesbian who can win any audience over. Becker uses her childhood experience, being raised between the Rust Belt and the Deep South, to connect with all sorts of people. Her ability to connect with audiences of all backgrounds comes from her southern charm mashed up with her raucous and powerful persona.

Any week Becker isn’t touring, you can find her packing Buffalo’s famous Nietzsche’s Bar, having her audience roaring with laughter during the city’s longest-running open mic comedy night, Doin’ Time Comedy. You can check out a more detailed list of her performances on her page here!
