UnCabaret is a legendary alternative comedy show which has helped define the genre over 25 years ago. In short, it’s a progressive storytelling show where comedians tell true stories they've never told on stage before. (No rehearsed bits, no derogatory jokes.), a real game changer in the industry.
For more than 25 years, UnCabaret has been the un-homophobic, un-xenophobic, un-misogynistic and un-hacky place for comedy luminaries to tell stories ripped from the headlines of their lives. UnCabaret has been adapted into an Amazon Prime series, a Comedy Central special, and five critically acclaimed albums. Its notable guest list includes Bob Odenkirk, Patton Oswalt, Margaret Cho, Sandra Bernhard, Kathy Griffin, Maria Bamford, Julia Sweeney, Tig Notaro, Jon Stewart, Jennifer Coolidge, Sarah Silverman, Natasha Leggero, Sam Jay, Ali Wong and countless more.
Her new book So You Need to Decide, features conversations with comedians, writers and cultural icons about making decisions in family, work, love, moving, and spirituality. It's part memoir, part interviews and I recommend you grab a copy.
Beth is all about authenticity and self-reflection, as reflected in both the audiobook and UnCabaret. She loves to explore the stories behind our stories.
This is only a small snapshot of what she has achieved and
