You might have seen Boston native Roz Browne in numerous commercials, including a Diet Pepsi commercial shown during the Oscars.
Roz is undeniably one of the most talented comics and performers of this generation. With an earthy passion and tenacity, she draws from current and past relationships and observations to bravely weave humorous tales that makes you rethink everything you thought you knew about comedy.
Audience members tell her that she reminds them of the late Robin Harris. What drives Roz? She thinks it was being the middle child with six brothers and sisters. How else was she going to get attention?
The sassy performer, whose credits include Judd Apatow’s critically acclaimed comedy series “Baskets” on the FX network, national commercial spots for Geico Insurance Company and Xfinity, has assembled an extensive body of work. A career that began as a Certified Public Accountant for various companies including Segal, Goldman and Macnow where she handled the finances for Lou Rawls, Natalie Coles and Earth, Wind & Fire, proved confining for this dynamic performer.
While studying with Gary Austin, Founder of the Groundlings, she honed her writing and creativity to pursue her dream of being actor and standup comedian. A decade later, Browne was selected by Mitzi Shore, owner of the World Famous Comedy Store to become a regular at the club where her name is on the wall along with some of the greats like Richard Pryor and George Carlin.
She perfected her persona and delivery and has performed on top-rated comedy shows including BET’s “Comic View” and “Bryon Allen’s Comics Unleashed and twice on ABC’s “The View” as one of the Hilarious Housewives.
In her role as Trish in “Baskets,” she made an impact with her deadpan expressions and laugh out loud one-liners. She even became president of “Baskets College”, much to the dismay of Zack Galifianikis’ character.
Today, she exemplifies creativity at its best with gut-busting humor, bold drama and good old fashion storytelling wrapped in a courageously authentic package. Whether she is performing in honor of the incomparable Robin Williams or acting in films such as “How High” with Danny Devito, Roz exudes skill and discipline.
At home, she spends quality time with her dog Tipp who has his own Twitter account.
