Babs at UCB LA, August 2016
Big hair. Big heart. Big mouth.
Barbara’s intense yet goofy stage presence combined with vulnerable and dark material have made her a staple of the Los Angeles alternative comedy scene. She recently co-starred on the first season of "Corporate" on Comedy Central, and can be seen on Hulu’s “Coming to the Stage”, Nick Swardson's digital series “Typical Rick” and MTV’s “Acting Out”. She has been a contributing writer for the past three seasons of the hit show “Billy on the Street”, in addition to the upcoming Justin Willman show on Netflix and "Rachel Dratch's Late Night Snack" on TruTV.
Along with touring all over the country, Babs has made multiple visits to SF Sketchfest and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, where her performance was deemed ‘funny as get-out’ by the Portland Mercury. Her comedy has been featured on Huffington Post and Ellen, and her underground comedy show One-Two Punch, run out of her own living room in Silverlake, had a spread in the LA Times. She is also a regular at the top shows and venues in Los Angeles, including the Improv, Comedy Store, Meltdown, Good Heroin, and literally any place somebody will put a microphone and give her some attention.
Barbara is also a co-host of the hit podcast “Lady to Lady”, which recently surpassed 3 million downloads from listeners all over the world. The live talk show can be seen at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater and the Hollywood Improv. The show combines the roundtable discussions of The View with the antics and characters of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Described as “The funniest podcast ever” by BUST magazine, the ladies host an hour of strong pop culture opinions and embarrassing personal revelations. As their podcast intro says: "Can you keep a secret? Neither can we."
