Big hair. Big heart. Big mouth. Her intense yet goofy stage presence combined with vulnerable and dark material have made Babs a staple of the Los Angeles alternative comedy scene. She guest starred on two seasons of Comedy Central’s “Corporate” and has written for shows such as “Billy on the Street” and “Justin Willman’s Magic for Humans.” Her standup has been featured on HBOMax, Comedy Central’s Standup Featuring and Hulu’s Coming to the Stage, as well as festivals and venues across the world. She and Tess were featured in “Framing Britney Spears” on Hulu, due to their podcast that kinda sorta kicked off the #FreeBritney movement, leading to the investigative pod “Toxic: The Britney Spears Story.” Her debut comedy album “IF I DID IT” is now available on A Special Thing Records.
