Rebecca Corry says her start in comedy began, "when I came out of my mother's womb thinking...what is this? Some kind of joke?" She was born and raised in the Seattle suburb of Kent, Washington...or as she likes to call it, "the El Camino-driving, hot dog water loving, one-toothed pregnant teen capital of the world." Rebecca lived in Chicago for eight years, where she studied writing, acting and improvisation at The Second City, Annoyance and Center Theater. After an 11-month run in the Chicago production of Tony and Tina's Wedding as the pregnant maid of honor, Corry moved to Los Angeles. Immediately following her arrival she appeared at the HBO workspace in her first one-woman show, "Have You Ever Been Called a Dwarf?", shot a pilot for the Oxygen Network and was chosen to perform as a "New Face" at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Shortly after that, she landed a memorable role as Paul Giamatti's receptionist, Astrid Barker, in the feature film "Big Fat Liar". She then guest-starred on CBS's "Yes, Dear" and was in a national commercial campaign for Gallo wine. She also performed stand-up at clubs like The Improv, The Ice House, The Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory and many more. Rebecca hosted the second season of "Mix It Up," the interior design show created and executive produced by Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette. She has also guest starred on "The King of Queens," "The Bernie Mac Show," "The Wayne Brady Show," NBC's "Late Friday," "Comics Unleashed," E's 101 series," and Comedy Central's Premium Blend" while performing her second one woman show "Rebecca Corry with Balls" that the LA Weekly named "Comedy Pick of the Week." Rebecca's unique voice and style was seen and heard by all when she beat out thousands to become a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing 4." Rebecca headlines at universities around the country and can be seen in January 2009 performing her half hour special on Comedy Central Presents!
