BETH MCMULLEN

Oh, hey.

Beth is a writer, comedian, actor, singer, improvisor, director, producer and voiceover artist.

She literally does all of those things. She's a very busy lady.

She also loves talking about herself in the third person.

In the space of 12 months, Beth wrote and toured three solo shows in Australia, performing to sold out crowds, award nominations and critical acclaim. Her work onstage is a dynamic mix of storytelling, standup, cabaret and performance art. Her writing is bold, informed by a depth of lived experience.

As an actor, Beth has appeared on ABC TV’s The Checkout, Network 10's Saturday Night Rove, portrayed Macbeth in an all-cis-female performance of The Scottish Play and starred in an exciting ensemble cast of emerging comedians for the indie short film Free Bleed.

She is also a founding member of the internationally-touring improv troupe Confetti Gun.

When not playing make believe for grown-ups, Beth is a passionate mental health advocate,

woo-woo enthusiast and hypocritical vegan.
