Becky Braunstein grew up on a mountain in Eagle River, Alaska where she had no one to talk to, moved to Portland, Oregon after being diagnosed with metastatic thyroid cancer and almost losing her voice forever - but she didn’t lose it, and now she won’t shut up. She will appear in Season 1 of ‘Trinkets’ on Netflix, and was recently featured in Teen Vogue, in an article which insisted that each one of her life experiences "deserves [its] own television show". Wanda Sykes & Page Hurwitz agreed, producing Becky’s half-hour stand-up/documentary special as part of ‘Unprotected Sets’ on EPIX. Called a “comedy tsunami”, an “audience favorite”, and “the best thing that’s ever come from Alaska… like, by far” by the Portland Mercury, Becky is a fast-rising one-in-a-million performer with fresh energy and wide-eyed enthusiasm that is impossible to ignore. She has performed at nearly every top comedy festival in the country, including the Big Sky, Bridgetown, SF Sketchfest, Laughing Skull, All Jane, Limestone, 208 & Beast Village Comedy Festivals, and many others. Her comedy has aired on SiriusXM, IFC and Audible, and her Instagram posts from the Treefort Music Festival were featured on UPROXX. Becky hosts a spectacular show called 'Becky with the Good Jokes', which has featured appearances by Matt Braunger, Pete Holmes, Jamie Lee, The Unipiper, Ian Karmel, Marcella Arguello, Jenny Conlee from The Decemberists, and the mayor of Anchorage, Alaska. She competed in the National Spelling Bee in 1997, is about half fluent in German, and dreams of one day living in a house with central air.
Ali Reingold is a comedian based in Portland, Oregon, who endears herself to audiences with her friendly hair, curly demeanor, and grammatically correct jokes. She has performed in venues all over the country, in such festivals as SF Sketchfest, Women in Comedy, Hell Yes Fest, and All Jane, and she was a competitor in the 38th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition. Ali has also co-produced two weekly shows in downtown Portland, both of which met their demise but live on in her heart - even the one in a sticky-floored beach-themed bar. When not performing comedy, she enjoys eating peanut butter straight out of the jar to the point of self-disgust, and cuddling with her cat, Terwilliger Van Buren.

Tiff McGuire is an aggressively loud laugher and a total Gemini. She’s a fresh faced comedy baby but a near middle-aged know-it-all.

If you don’t know what that is, you should definitely subscribe and listen. Tiff lives alone in NE Portland, is SINGLE, and has two cats, Professor and Violet. If you’d really love to kill thirty minutes, ask her about them.
Comedian, writer, co-founder of Trash Amp Productions, co-host of Sex and the Pity and the Jaded Open mic, in addition to owner of Arete Media, Molly Smithson is that witchy older sister who tells you inappropriate secrets and silly tales. When not onstage oversharing, she types away at her desk on an upcoming memoir, hikes in the creepy park behind her house and rides the bus to therapy. That may make it very easy to stalk her- whoops!
