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.
Any week she’s not touring, Becker packs Buffalo’s legendary Nietzsche’s Bar, presiding over her native city’s longest running open mic comedy night, Doin’ Time Comedy. Becker also oversees Buffalo’s newest open mic comedy night, Stand-up Blast Off. Once a month, sell-out crowds of Buffalonians clamor to catch her signature comedy troupe, the Dykes of Hazard, at Babeville’s Ninth Ward. Kristen Becker has long been known as Buffalo’s Queen of Comedy. Is your town next?
