Bettina McKelvey

Bettina McKelvey is a Seattle-based comedian, lowbrow film savant, and hard-boiled librarian who routinely disarms patrons by removing her glasses and dramatically shaking her hair loose from a matronly up-do. Drawing on her past experience as a teenage thespian and frustrated middle child, her eclectic comedy style ranges from vivid character studies to naïve erotica she wrote as an adolescent virgin. She has performed at the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival and the Macefield Music Festival, and has opened for local heroes Hari Kondabolu and Lindy West. She is a co-producer of a monthly showcase in Seattle, Wine Shots: Comedy’s Happiest Hour.
