Mary Beth Barone is a Manhattan-based comedian, writer, and actor. She was recently named one of Comedy Central’s Up Next and performed at their Clusterfest showcase in June 2019. Her stand-up has been (accurately) described as dark post-modernism and ingeniously self-aware by TimeOut NY. 

Mary Beth can be seen hosting her monthly stand-up show at Peppi’s Cellar with Benito Skinner or at PUBLIC hotel in New York City, where she has a stand-up residency. She also hosts Drag His Ass: A F*ckboy Treatment Program, a show she feels very strongly about.

In May 2019, Mary Beth tweeted photos of a pamphlet she made for her family before going out on a date while they were on vacation. People really liked it a lot and that’s what most of the press links below are about. This interview with MILK was not part of the pamphlet coverage but you might enjoy reading it. I don’t know ur life!

Mary Beth has produced, written, and starred-in a whole buncha digital videos like the sketch series Double Homicide and the acclaimed short film Mary Beth’s Sex Tape. She currently hosts/produces the podcast Mildly Offensive. She’s been seen on Viceland, PureWow, and Betches.

Most people reading this are probably other comedians trying to figure out how old I am. I’m 28.
