Dirty Girls - "R" Rated Comedy From Seattle's Funnies Women
Comedy is a not a clean sport. These ladies prove it!
Comedy has never been funnier than from these "R" rated ladies. Featuring: Beka Barry, Kelsey Cook and Belinda Carroll. Hosted by Kiera Giordon with special guests - Elicia Sanchez & Kristina McMillan.
About Beka Barry
Beka Barry is not your average "chick-comic". Aggressive, uncompromising, and unapologetic, her brash style forces you to laugh as she shows a side of this world you may not have considered. Clad in black and with a steely wit to match, Beka launches a fiercely hilarious show from the second she hits the stage.
Beka Barry is also not your average PTA mom. Thrust into mommyhood before she was ready, she has encountered a world of responsibility and sacrifice - a world that does not contain nearly as much glitz and glamour as diapers and baby puke would lead you to believe. The fun of dating with a child at home, dealing with a meddling mother, remarrying, more babies, and uber-religious in-laws are just a few of the topics touched on as Beka weaves her way through a show.
Seasoned parenting veterans will connect with every word from her mouth, and the young 'uns will actually consider wearing TWO condoms after hearing a mountain of truth. Everyone who attends a Beka Barry show leaves with at least two things: a new found respect for your mother, and a face exceedingly sore from laughing.
Beka has appeared on "The Fugitive," was featured in Nick@Night's "Search For The Funniest Mom in America 2" was a semi-finalist in the prestigious 2000 & 2001 Seattle Comedy Competition, and was named "Northwest's Hottest Newcomer" by Comedy Connection. She also has a great rack. If that matters.
About Kelsey Cook
Kelsey Cook has a dazzling charm that's sprinkled with filth. She's been described as "Louis C.K. meets a tiny white girl." The young up-and-coming comedian was raised by an International Yo-Yo Champion and a Professional Foosball player. "That's not a joke" says Cook, "but I wish it was." Cook enrolled in Washington State University with aspirations of becoming a high school math teacher. She later switched to a Broadcast Production major and began doing improv and stand up. She produced a comedy show that she headlined weekly in addition to hosting and writing her own late-night television show on KWSU-8. She's won Washington State University's "Last Coug Standing" competition, the Renton Comedy Competition, the Key Peninsula Comedy Competition, and was runner up in the Hollywood Comedy Competition. Cook was also selected to perform in the She-Devil Comedy Festival in New York City, where she entertained crowds at several "Best of the Fest" shows. You can see why she's been called "the next Chelsea Handler" by her mother. After graduation in 2012, she relocated to Seattle where she continues to impress by winning competitions and touring the country.
About Belinda Carroll
Belinda Carroll is a nationally touring stand-up comedian, writer, vocalist and actress with appearances on XM Sirius' Get Off My Lawn!, NBC's GRIMM, MTV, and the Oregon Lottery's Winter Scratch-it's commercial. She caught the comedy bug circa 1986 when in 3rd grade she was asked to play not only, "Aunt Sally" in the school comedic masterpiece "Tom Sawyer"; but was also asked to sing the national anthem, in front of the entire school, in a gray-haired wig, floral mu-mu dress, and Mom's orthopedic stockings. With her pride firmly in the gutter, her road had begun.
Belinda sang Blues, R&B and Soul most of her life in various bands, and migrated naturally to comedy in 2002 with the sketch comedy troupe "The Tragedies." Moving to Austin, Texas in 2005, she branched into improvisational comedy, began stand-up comedy and discovered an art form that allows her to express all of the different parts of her performing background, and seek vengeance on students that mercilessly teased her throughout school. She will not rest until justice is done. She has appeared at various venues and festivals including: Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Comedy Store LA, Butch Voices Oakland, Portland State University, Washington State University, Cap City Comedy, Hawthorne Theater and has headlined the National Planned Parenthood conference. She has produced shows and performed with: Dwight Slade, Nato Green, Chip Pope, Sabrina Matthews, Dana Goldberg, Ian Harvie, Curiously Strong Comedy with Vicki Shaw, Gloria Bigalow and Jackie Monahan, and Lezberados with Sandra Valls and Mimi Gonzalez. Her comedic writing has been published in The Advocate, Curve Magazine, Mercury and PQ Monthly. She is also a author in Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme a winner of the 2012 Stonewall book award and a current LAMBDA nominee.
