She can also be seen performing with improv groups Shark Tank and Nap Time Inc.. Her sketch group Ham on the Bone (a name so not embarrassing you’re probably jealous) performs monthly at the Magnet Theater and she makes funny videos with The Basement. Beth wrote, directed, and performed in the sketch show "Sexual Dancing For Dummies". Beth also blogs for the Huffington Post just like fellow comedian Larry David.
