Becky Braunstein is a comedian & actor originally from Eagle River, Alaska, who moved to Portland for cancer treatment and ended up staying because she was done having to drive on ice and snow in the dark for six months out of every year. Called a "comedy tsunami" by the Portland Mercury, her uniquely enthusiastic performance style has been described as "wide-eyed", "snappy", and "deeply earnest". Becky has a half hour comedy special as part of Unprotected Sets on EPIX, and can be seen on Chad (TBS), Trinkets (Netflix), and Season 3 of Shrill (Hulu). During the past year, she has been creating a series of animated history comedy videos called Microcosmic Storytime with Becky on her YouTube channel. Becky competed in the National Spelling Bee in 1997, is about half fluent in German, and dreams of one day living in a house with central air.
