BETH MCMULLEN

Oh, hey.

Beth (she/her/they) is a performer, comedian, writer, director, producer, singer and voiceover artist.

She literally does all of those things. She's a very busy lady.

She also loves talking about herself in the third person.

In the space of 12 months, Beth wrote and toured three solo shows in Australia, performing to sold out crowds and critical acclaim. She even managed to pick up a few sneaky award nominations.

Her work onstage is a dynamic and at-times-confusing mix of storytelling, standup, cabaret, improv and performance art. Her writing is bold and unapologetic, informed by a depth of lived experience and infused with the big heart of a queer, neurodivergent woman.


In 2020, her new solo show Big Womb Energy (currently in development) was selected by South of the River Pictures from thousands of applicants for their Screenshot Commendation List.

As an actor, Beth has appeared on Australian television in the now-cancelled The Checkout on ABC TV, and the also-cancelled Saturday Night Rove on Network 10. She portrayed Macbeth in an all-cis-female performance of The Scottish Play and starred in an exciting ensemble cast of emerging comedians for the indie short film Free Bleed, which did the festival circuit in 2020. She is also starring in the ensemble for the indie comedy feature Evicted! A Modern Romance, set for release in 2021.


As a creator, Beth gets shit done. She is a founding member of the internationally-touring improv troupe Confetti Gun and the female-led creative agency and production company The Bird Cartel.

When not playing make believe for grown-ups, Beth works in suicide prevention as an advocate for neurodivergence, is an extremely passionate woo-woo enthusiast and hypocritical vegan.
