Bio

People say Mary Becquet is stuck up – she’s not stuck up!  She’s just dead inside, it’s different.

Raised in a financially challenged home in Manor, Texas (ok it was a single wide trailer), Mary borrowed money, worked 3 jobs and took 10 years to get through college in search of a better life.  This enabled her, years later, to become a bitter accountant adding stuff up to keep her health insurance.  She used to own a house.

At work Mary started writing jokes while, to the untrained eye, she appeared to be taking notes at meetings.  One day she forgot her notebook at a big meeting, where it was found by some co-workers who gleefully proceeded to it out loud, over cocktails, to senior management.  Called on to explain herself, Mary told an inspired lie and said it was part of her new “stand-up routine.”  The next day, she frantically enrolled herself in a stand-up comedy workshop.  That was in 2008.

In addition to her career failings, Mary is also ugly.  At 18, she  cut off her finger in an accident with a table saw.  “You know how people greet me?”,  queries Mary.  “High four.” 

Whether offering up her fear of aging or 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 pretty good comedy.  At a minimum you’ll be glad you have a better life than her.

Both Carol Burnett and Mary Becquet are from San Antonio, Texas. Funny! It’s a sign!  In the past year Mary has appeared at clubs from Vancouver, Canada, to MacAllen & Laredo, Texas.  In 2016, she opened for Mike Epps across Texas in Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Midland and El Paso.  Mary also performs comedy at corporate events with audiences of all ages;  contact Mary today for booking at your next party or Corporate celebration!
