Bio

Mary Becquet is a fat teenager from a poor family…locked inside the body of a 50-something woman, both of them tied to a low-level job in a Fortune 500 company.  She has watched many friends climb the corporate ladder while she has remained at the bottom. Eventually this frustrated white chick from rural Texas began to find her lack of advancement funny.  

A few years back, Mary started writing jokes and insults about her boss and co-workers instead of taking notes at department meetings.  One day she forgot her notebook at a Corporate retreat, where it was found by her “mean girl” co-workers who read the insults out loud to senior management. To save face, Mary claimed it was all part of her “comedy act”.  The next day, she frantically enrolled herself in a stand-up comedy class.

Mary’s background is a long way from the stuffy corporate world of her day job.  Growing up in Manor, Texas (the town too poor to afford a dictionary), at 18 she cut her finger off with a table saw.  “You know what I hate?”,  muses Mary.  “Finger food.” 

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 and Laredo, Texas.  Mary also performs comedy at corporate events with audiences of all ages;  contact Mary today for booking at your next party or Corporate celebration.
