Full Presenter Profile & Bio
As a writer, performer and stand-up comedian, Becky is one of the most exciting voices on the Australian comedy scene.
In 2013, Becky gained recognition as a stand-up comedian and performer by exploding onto the comedy scene as a Raw Comedy finalist. Since then, she has been commanding worldwide attention. The following year, she was chosen for “The Comedy Zone” at the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where the next wave of big names in Australian comedy is discovered and showcased. Her debut solo show in 2015, “Hightide”, was performed to sell-out crowds and received rave reviews.
Since then, Becky has performed solo shows to sold-out crowds across Australia and abroad. In 2017, Becky toured across Australia and New Zealand, performing her show “Little Bitch”. She then ventured overseas and made her Edinburgh Fringe Debut in 2018. That same year, Becky performed her solo show live at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs Sydney Festival. Her 2019 show, “Um, Support Me?!”, was a success. Becky rounded off the tour performing alongside some of the biggest names of comedy at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, the world’s largest comedy event.
Becky has opened for calibre comics, including Jim Norton, Beth Stelling, Wil Anderson, Joel Creasey and Conan O’Brien. She has also performed at the prestigious UCB theatre in Los Angeles and The Comedy Cellar in New York.
Becky is all over the small screen when she's not on stage, making her stand-up television debut on ABC TV for The Melbourne International Festival’s “Comedy Up Late”. In that same year, she and fellow comedian Cameron James were selected to co-write, co-create and co-star in “Be Your Own Boss”, which screened as a part of the ABC’s Fresh Blood series. Becky then made her US television debut on the late-night talk show “Conan” in 2019, making her the first female Australian to feature on the show.
Her TV credits have only continued to grow. In 2021, Becky secured a much sought-after position as the host of the 2021 Oxfam Gala for the opening of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival on ABC TV. She has hosted ABC2 and Screen Australia’s Opening Short half-hour documentary “Big Bad Love”, as well as made appearances on The Comedy Channel’s “Best of the Sydney Fest”, JFL’s “The Stand-Up” series, ABC’s “Fancy Boy” and Network 10’s “Hughesy, We Have A Problem”. In addition, she has teamed up once again alongside friend and fellow performer Cameron James for Comedy Central’s “Share This”.
In 2020, Becky appeared on the Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival on Stan, Drunk History on Network 10, ABC iView’s Home Alone Tonight hosted by Ray Martin and Amazon Prime’s Last One Laughing with Rebel Wilson.
Alongside being a performer and comedian, Becky is also a talented writer. Her writing credits include co-writing for Matt Okine’s semi-autobiographical comedy “The Other Guy” and Josh Thomas’s Emmy-nominated show, “Please Like Me”. She has also written a series of short stories for Comedy Central. Her weekly newsletter has a fanbase of its own. A prolific queen tweeter, Becky was named one of Buzzfeed’s 27 funniest Australian comedians on Twitter.
Becky’s debut novel, “Acknowledgements” was published in 2020.
