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 3 years in a row (2016 through 2018). Kupp is especially proud because Lez Stand Up is her baby.
You may have seen her in Bridgetown Comedy Festival, All Jane Festival, hosting Hump! Film Festival, or The State of Period with Margaret Cho, or maybe when she opened for Emily Heller, Michael Che, DeAnne Smith or Fortune Feimster! Kupp gets around!
