Bio

Mary Becquet is still the overweight girl from a rural family, even though she’s now in her 50’s at a mid-level job in a Fortune 500 company.  She watched a lot of her school friends climb the corporate ladder, but could never make it happen for herself.  After watching lesser rivals take promotion after promotion in every workplace, eventually this Texas girl began to find the funny in her lack of success.  

So Mary started writing jokes and observations about her boss and co-workers while, to the untrained eye, she appeared to be taking notes at department meetings.  One day she forgot her notebook at a Corporate retreat, where it was found by some co-workers, who gleefully proceeded to read Mary’s private jokes and observations out loud, over cocktails, to senior management.  Called on to explain herself, Mary thought fast and said it was part of her new “stand-up comedy act.”  The next day, she frantically searched online and enrolled herself in a stand-up comedy workshop.  The rest is her-story, LOL!

Mary’s background is a long way from the corporate world of her day job.  She went to high school in Manor, Texas (the town too poor to afford a dictionary), and at 18,  cut off her finger in an accident with a table saw.  “You know how people say hi to me in the hall?”,  queries Mary.  “High four.” 

Try as she might to maintain a corporate image, Mary’s caustic personality and rustic roots have a habit of showing through.  She’s a little too loud and a little too honest, the kind of woman who will say what everyone else wants to say.

Whether offering up her panicked fear of aging and deriding her shallow self-absorbtion with her looks; skewering the daily aggravation of married life; or telling stories about her  embarrassing misadventures while she was a school teacher in China, Mary Becquet’s wry observations make for great comedy. 

Combining the satire of early Saturday Night Live and the wacky domestic comedy of Carol Burnett, Mary Becquet has audiences rolling in the aisle.  Based in San Antonio, Texas, in the past year she has appeared at clubs from Montreal and Toronto Canada, to Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Del Rio & Laredo, Texas.  In 2016, she opened for Mike Epps.  Mary also performs comedy at corporate events with audiences of all ages;  contact Mary today for booking at your next party or Corporate celebration.
