Bio:

Becky Veduccio is a stand-up comedian, award-winning writer, and accomplished actress. In addition to being trained at Upright Citizens Brigade, The Groundlings, The Magnet Theater and Improvolution she’s acted opposite the likes of Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lopez. During her 15 years in the business she's performed internationally from London's West End Theater to Los Angeles. Notably, she's been featured on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, advancing to the second round and was a ‘Best Newcomer’ finalist in the Bud Light Ladies Of Laughter competition performing at Madison Square Garden. 

 

As a writer, Becky received a New York Press Club Award for humorous writing and was chosen as one of Parenting.com’s “Fave Mommy Bloggers”. From poetry to personal essay; to sketch, stand-up and television specs; Becky has consulted on scripts for the likes of Anthony Minghella, Ralph Fiennes, and Kristin Scott Thomas. With her ability to write a joke on any topic and ‘punch’ up material, Becky has become known on the comedy scene as the “Joke Fluffer”, consulting with comedians to improve their stand-up sets. She uses this ability as a comedy instructor and has taught every age group from elementary school and teenagers to university students and adults. 

 

As a kid in Boston, she was inspired to find her comedic voice by Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett. She grew restless in her hometown in Boston and relocated to Los Angeles. Within two weeks she was working at the prestigious Creative Artists Agency. While there she was coaxed by an agent to audition for The Groundlings Theater, began training there on weekends and dove into improv and character work.

 

Currently, Becky performs regularly at Gotham Comedy Club and the major comedy clubs around NYC. When she’s not performing she’s a professor of comedy at the American Comedy Institute, Improvolution, and a local University. She continues to improvise her way through life – particularly when it comes to her children who she refers to as her greatest productions yet.
