A laid-back demeanor juxtaposed with brave humor has made Beth Stelling a favorite on the Chicago and Los Angeles standup circuit for over eight years. The Ohio native got her start in high school on the Speech and Debate team where she cut her teeth in comedic storytelling through “Humorous Interpretation” competitions against fellow teenage comics.
In 2010, Stelling was named the New Face of Comedy at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, fueling a move to Los Angeles. Within months of relocating, she made her television debut with a much-coveted spot on Conan. In fall 2012, Stelling released her first comedy album, “Sweet Beth,” through Rooftop Comedy.
Her meteoric rise to comedy stardom continues as she repeatedly garners national attention: she was just cited by the Huffington Post as one of the “Top 18 Women You Should Be Following on Twitter,” and by Vulture as one of “The 50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015.”
A Beth Stelling gig is like chatting with your funniest friend as she delivers well-crafted jokes with conversational sincerity. Stelling joins the ranks of Hari Kondabolu, Cameron Esposito, and Solomon Georgio, who took their side-splitting acts to the MASS MoCA stage on the cusp of comedy superstardom.
