“When people hear I’m Russian, they always assume I’m either in the Mafia or good at math. Unfortunately, I’m just a hooker.”
So begins another boisterous set by breakout comedian Vicky Kuperman— Moscow-born Boston native, New York City rat-packer and recently named “one of 12 new comedians to watch” on The Huffington Post.
Alternately described as “fierce,” “fearless” and “ferociously funny,” Vicky has performed at countless festivals nationwide, including the renowned Boston Comedy Festival (where, in 2012, she was a finalist—one of only four women to have reached that round in the festival’s 13-year history).
When she is not performing live, Vicky is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, where her columns skewer the absurdities of everything from weddings to work to politics. In 2009, she and fellow comedian Kendra Cunningham founded Malarkey Pictures, for which they write, direct and star in short films that appear across the Internet, notably on Funny or Die. Their film LonelyGirl48was named Best Comedic Short at the Boston Comedy Festival in 2010, and Best Short Film at the 2011 Palm Beach Women’s Festival. More of their films have been screened at the St. Louis and Boston film festivals.
In 2013, she published her debut novel “The Russian Drop”, available as an e-book on amazon.com and about to be released in paper-back in May of 2014.
She has been featured on The Maxim Comedy Showcase, on NickMom TV, Sirius Satellite Radio & Comcast and was presented by comedy legend David Brenner on several shows as part of his tour “David Brenner Presents: Comedy Stars of Tomorrow.”
In 2012, she launched her own line of e-greetings with “Off the Boat Greetings.”
