Originally from Portland, Oregon, Robinson is an LGBTQ+ LA-based comedian, writer, actor and voice-over star. You may also know her as the “Entitled Housewife”, the outspoken viral golf character Robinson created who co-starred in the two virtual comedy variety specials she produced to help spread laughter during the yearlong pandemic.
Robinson’s explosively unique character antics and viral videos have racked up millions of views across social media and garnered fans across the country (and the country clubs!). Her new original song ‘Mama Needs a Claw’ (which first debuted as the finale of her first variety special) is now all over the radio!
In addition to touring internationally as a standup comedian, Robinson was named a JFL Montreal New Face of Comedy where her stand out multi-character performance landed her a sketch show development deal and a number of voiceover jobs with DreamWorks, Nickelodeon and Netflix. In 2016, Robinson was cast on MTV’s Wild ’N Out with Nick Cannon where she also put out a Wild ’N Out Stand Up Special.

He was featured on Lego Star Wars Freemakers Adventures, Fishhooks and Pickle And Peanut. He has also starred in plays and musicals on stages all over the country.

Wilson has enjoyed a forty year career in movies, television, and onstage, and continues to build a legacy of memorable performances that have become iconic in popular culture.
Serious acting studies began the journey, but soon standup stages took over and he became a regular comedian and improv performer at the booming Comedy Store and Improv clubs, onstage with the likes of Robin Williams and Richard Pryor at the height of the comedy boom. Soon after, he was cast as Biff in the now classic Back To The Future trilogy, following up the iconic performance with turns as Griff, and gunslinger Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen. A long career in movies and television blossomed, and some credits include “The Heat,” “The Informant,” “Mosaic,” “Bound by Honor,” “April Fools Day,” and many more. His countless TV credits include the classic “Freaks and Geeks,” and the improvisational “Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous” with Bo Burnham.
His career in animation has been no less busy, with “SpongeBob,” “PigGoatBananaCricket,” “CatDog” and myriad roles in TV cartoons and feature animation, including all of the “SpongeBob” movies. He takes great pride in physically attacking Batman, Superman, Spiderman, the Hulk, and a host of other cartoon heroes, and being beaten decisively by each superhero every time.
He is also a painter, and studied at The Los Angeles Art Academy and the California Art Institute. His work is represented in many galleries, and he’s had many solo exhibitions, including two solo exhibitions at Nickelodeon World Headquarters, as well as selection as a “Disney Featured Artist” with solo exhibitions at Disneyland, and the Disney Gallery.
In Middlemost Post, Parker J. Cloud (Becky Robinson), an exuberant raincloud, lives and works in the Middlemost Post Office with Angus (John DiMaggio), a burly, rule-abiding mailman who cherishes his solitude and values efficiency, and Russell, their magical pet walrus whose stomach is so big that it doubles as a storage room.
Together they journey through Mount Middlemost and the six territories of Somewhere to deliver the mail, while meeting some exceptionally quirky and peculiar people along the way. But as this loving and unconventional trio grows closer, they remain blissfully unaware that they have been brought together by one fateful stormy event.
The Patrick Star Show follows a younger Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke) living at home with his family, where he hosts his own show for the neighborhood from his television-turned-bedroom. His little sister, Squidina (Jill Talley), works behind the scenes to make sure Patrick’s show is always running smoothly, while his parents, Bunny (Cree Summer) and Cecil (Tom Wilson) and his grandpa, GrandPat (Dana Snyder), each support Patrick in their own hilariously absurd ways. The Star family’s unpredictable adventures often inform, integrate, and sometimes even interfere with Patrick’s TV show, but one thing is for sure: his bizarre life always makes for great television!
