Bio

Rebecca Corry was born and raised in the Seattle suburb of Kent, Washington. Rebecca moved to Chicago at 19 and lived there for 9 years, where she studied writing, acting and improvisation at The Second City, Annoyance Theater 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?”, hosted a pilot for the Oxygen Network and was chosen to perform as a “New Face” at the Montreal Comedy Festival.  Later that year, 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 became the face of a national Gallo wine campaign. After being seen by Courteney Cox and David Arquette, they hired Rebecca to host the second season of their interior design show, “Mix It Up.”  Later, with Courteney, David and two other comedians, she went on to sell a late night comedy pilot to FOX, which she wrote on, produced and starred in.  Some of Rebecca’s guest star appearances include; “The King of Queens,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Rules Of Engagement,” “Rizzoli and Isles,” as well as appearances on “The Wayne Brady Show,” NBC’s “Late Friday,” “Comics Unleashed,” E’s 101 series,” Vh1′s “Best Week Ever,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and her own 1/2 hour Comedy Central Presents 1/2 hour special.  While performing her critically acclaimed one woman show “REBECCA CORRY WITH BALLS,” she went on to beat thousands and become a finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing 4.” In addition to headlining around the country, Rebecca has been cast as a series regular for a new NBC multi camera comedy called One Big Happy executive produced by Ellen Degeneres. Rebecca is thrilled to be working with Liz Feldman and part of an amazing cast of talented actors.

 

Aside from acting and stand up comedy, Rebecca’s equally passionate about the Stand Up For Pits Foundation, Inc. A non profit she founded in Sept of 2013 which raises awareness and saves the lives of Pit Bull Terriers through positive education and live entertainment events. The SUFP Foundation/Rebecca made history on May 3rd, 2014 as organizer of the first ever One Million PIBBLE March On Washington DC in an effort to end BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) and dog fighting and by doing so, create safe and humane communities for humans and animals. An estimated 4500 marched then gathered on the West Lawn of the US Capital making this event the first of it’s kind in American history. All inspired by her velvet hippo, Angel and her single most proud accomplishment to date. Rebecca believes fear based ignorance and hate is wrong. Wether the victim has two legs or four. It is wrong and Rebecca is dedicated to the being the voice of this beautiful breed that has been unjustly vilified, abused and needlessly destroyed for over 3 decades.
