Becky Poole has been described by New York Theatre as having a "commitment to the absurd that is hilariously charming" and by New York's Backstage magazine as being "a bizarre blend of perkiness and rage". An actor, comedian, voice over artist, and musical saw player who recently moved to Seattle from Brooklyn, she's been performing, writing, and producing sketch comedy and performance pieces around the country. A majority of her stage work has been with the critically acclaimed, New York based sketch comedy groups, MEAT and Becky & Noelle. Other stage highlights include a run of "I'm Gonna Kill The President! A Federal Offense at Performance Space 122 and "Becky & Noelle: Investigating the Bucket" in the 2003 NYC Fringe Festival. Becky has done voice work for Bill Plympton, Discovery Kids, Blue's Room, The Cartoon Network and various animated projects. You can hear a few of her original songs on Animal Planet coming up this summer. She started playing the musical saw in 2001 and has been playing it in music projects and in NYC's experimental cover band Stickerbook. She is currently a company member of Annex Theatre and working on a late night show with comedy duo Gude & Laurance called, "Naked Ladies." Becky's newest show is about her 6 yr old performance artist alter ego, Kitty Poole, titled "Kitty Poole's One Little Show." Join them both in a messy romp through their subconscious. The piece promises monsters, cake, musical saw, and some disturbing dreams. It's about feeling good. Kitty Poole has been performed in venues around NYC including The Bowery Poetry Club, Mo Pitkins, and the People's Improv Theatre in Manhattan and Galapagos art Space in Brooklyn. Also at the Baronet Theatre in Asbury Park New Jersey. Here in Seattle she's been at Annex Theatre's Spin the Bottle (recurring artist), Re-Bar, and Big Wheel Bingo at the Can Can, with upcoming performances in 12 Min Max at On the Boards and the Solo Performance Festival. The act promises musical saw, monsters serving cake and some disturbing dreams.
