Zabeth Russell is an actress, writer, improviser, improv coach, and person who lives in Los Angeles, California. Zabeth was born in Mooresville, Indiana, and stayed there for a while before moving to Boston. She began doing improv and later was a member of the artistic staff at ImprovBoston before getting on a plane and landing at iOWest in Hollywood, California, where she improvises weekly with Trophy Wife, Armando, Kind Strangers, IO Repertory, and Middle Seat, among others. She's performed and taught in improv and comedy festivals too numerous to mention. I mean, she could mention them, but she won't, unless you really want her to. Most recently she taught Harold technique in Austin, Texas, and scenework at the Women in Comedy Festival in Boston, Massachusetts.
Film and TV credits include Raising Hope, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Atom TV's Great Moments in Human Interaction, the PBS film Breaking the Mold, the FOX-TV pilot Page Six (which she also co-wrote) and the Clint Eastwood-directed Mystic River. You may have also seen her yell at Howie Mandel to quiet down in a commercial.
She is a frequent Tweeter, a sometimes blogger, and the writer of Awkward Valentines. She records songs and performs in LA with her band, Casual Young Italians. She loves dogs, coffee, and vintage aprons. She bakes one mean red velvet cake and would make a witty addition to your barbecue or themed Flag Day party. She has curly hair, brown eyes and is the proud owner of all ten of her original fingers... for now.
Zabeth is managed by Eileen O'Farrell at O'Farrell Management (818.985.3136) and repped commercially and theatrically by Orion Barnes at Rogers Orion Talent Agency (818.789.7064).
