Bri Pruett is a stand-up comic and improviser from Portland, Oregon, living in Los Angeles, California. Her TedxTalk on beauty standards dropped in 2018. In 2017, she was featured on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle. In 2016 she won the Willamette Week reader’s poll for Best Comedian in Portland. Splitsider.com has named her a “comic-to-watch.”
She’s appeared on Dan Savage’s Savage Lovecast, Doug Loves Movies and NPR’s Live Wire. Her live festival appearances include: TBA Festival, Bridgetown, Riot LA, SF Sketch Fest, All Jane Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot and more. She also makes regular appearances at comedy clubs across the country; although Portland’s Helium Comedy Club will always be her home.
Her solo show, STELLAR, debuted in Portland in 2016; later it was accepted into the 2018 Bootleg Solo Queens Festival in Los Angeles. It’s been called, “Unaplogetically feminine…” and “Body-positive, pro-self love and pro-female sexuality… overtly feminist and feel-good.”
Bri has been a frequent contributor to the Portland Mercury, with a column about sex and dating called: Let’s Do It! with Bri Pruett. Her comedic writing has been seen in other publications, and she formerly wrote and developed a late night talk show format, Late Night Action with Alex Falcone and Bri Pruett.
