Learn more about Beth Littleford of Summer Showdown.
Since she was named "wittiest" in her junior high school yearbook, Beth has followed in the rich tradition of Episcopalians in comedy. Having found her way from suburban Orlando to New York City, she started a sketch group named after her wiener dog, Ms. Dee, and toured with a New York Improv company before ultimately putting up a one-woman show called "This Is Where I Get Off." The show was picked up by Circle Rep and enjoyed an extended Off-Broadway run, where she was scouted by Comedy Central and tapped to be a correspondent in their news parody, The Daily Show. She won widespread notoriety during her four years on there and also hosted a half-hour interview series called "The Beth Littleford Interview Specials."
She spent two seasons on ABC's Spin City, which was responsible for her move out to L.A. and away from The Daily Show. Since moving to L.A., she has done several pilots, had a sitcom development deal, and had guest-starring appearances on many shows including Joey, Frasier and the The West Wing, as well as recurring roles on One on One and Life with Bonnie.
Beth's movie roles include David E. Kelley's Mystery, Alaska, with Russell Crowe, PJ Hogan's Unconditional Love, and most recently Judd Apatow's Drillbit Taylor, with Owen Wilson.
You may have also seen her in ad campaigns for IBM, NFL, Diet Pepsi, Cisco, Xerox, Laughing Cow cheese, and Cheez-Its; in one of her many appearances on Hollywood Squares or Politically Incorrect; or on one of VH-1's endless stream of shows in which she waxes nostalgic about last Tuesday.
Since giving birth to her baby boy last summer, she has guested on TV shows such as Strong Medicine, Without a Trace, and Samantha Who?, as well as voicing various characters on Disney's Kimpossible and Fox's The Family Guy.
