Kirsten Kuppenbender is a goddamn Power House, with a heart made of precious metal. She's a comedian, a writer, an actor and is the visionary of a comedy revolution. Kupp's comedy has been described as "observational, with bouts of off-the-cuff brilliance". As a host, she has been deemed quirky, bubbly and "completely out of control" by guests and performers alike.
Kupp is the Founder and Producer of Lez Stand Up: a Portland-based, all-queer, feminist comedy collective and showcase. LSU has been voted Portland's Funniest Comedy Event for 2 years in a row (2016 &2017), and is most likely going to win again. Kupp is especially proud because Lez Stand Up is her baby.
You may have seen her in Bridgetown Comedy Festival, All Jane, Funny Women Festival LA, and when she opened for Michael Che, Emily Heller or DeAnne Smith! Further sightings of Kupp have been reported on-screen in the video for Horse Feathers, in those deeply pervasive Oregon Lottery Commercials and also on the cutting room floor of the Portlandia editing room.
