Dorchester-based comedian Bethany Van Delft, the host of the monthly Artisanal Comedy show at Dorchester Brewing Company, will release her debut comedy album, “I’m Not A Llama,” next Friday (Dec. 13).
Her “hip and grounded, laid-back delivery” has earned her the honor of performing at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, as well as SF Sketchfest in San Francisco, the All Jane Comedy Festival in Portland, Oregon, and on the 2 Dope Queens Podcast.
Van Delft, a Bronx-native who moved to Boston as a child, is a regular performer and producer for the Boston Comedy Festival and the Women in Comedy Festival, where she created the series “38/7%.” Her storytelling show/podcast with co-producer Nick Chambers, “Starstruck: Close Encounters of the Awkward Kind,” won Best Comedy Night in Boston from The Improper Bostonian, and earlier this year, she was named “2019 Best Comic” by Boston Magazine.
She is also a regular host and storyteller for The Moth, where her telling of her first postpartum experience went viral with 15 million views and is included in the Moth book “All These Wonders.”
“I’m Not A Llama,” which draws on her experience as a wife and mother, will be available on streaming services beginning next Friday.
