Beth Stelling is our guest auctioneer for July. LA Weekly named Stelling #2 on a list of “12 L.A. Comedy Acts to Watch in 2013.” Patton Oswalt also just listed Beth as one of his favorite up-and-coming comics during his AMA on Reddit. She was a New Face of Comedy at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and will be returning to the fest this year. A few months after arriving in LA, Stelling made her standup television debut on TBS’s Conan.Conan announced the release of her debut comedy album, Sweet Beth, on Rooftop Comedy’s record label. Her second appearance was on TV Guide Network’s Stand-up In Stilettos with Kate Flannery. Beth was deemed “Top 18 Women You Should Be Following On Twitter” by Huffington Post.
Nerdist.com has been a big supporter of Beth, including her in their “Four Funny Female Comedians You Need to Know” alongside Shelby Fero, Tig Notaro and Ali Wong. Beth can be heard on Chris Hardwick’s annual podcast Stand-up Cluster 2013 and with Pete Holmes on his podcast “You Made It Weird” #134.
Stelling started telling jokes seriously in Chicago where she was a cast member of Chicago Underground Comedy. She performed stand-up at the top comedy venues, studied improv at The Annoyance Theater and tri-hosted a show called “Entertaining Julia” that remains beloved today with her friends Tiffany and Danielle Puterbaugh. In 2010 The Chicago Reader named her the “Best Stand-up Comedian in Chicago.”
Beth continues to work bars, theaters, bookstores, sex shops, clubs, festivals and colleges across the country. She’s had the honor and delight of working with Rob Delaney, Sarah Silverman, Kristen Schaal, Andy Richter, Jimmy Pardo, Bill Burr, Nick Kroll, Kyle Kinane, Jim Norton, Dana Gould and Greg Proops among others. Beth runs a weekly L.A. show called The Business with 3 dude comics at The Lyric Hyperion Theater in Silverlake, every Thursday at 8pm.
