One of Hollywood’s most versatile talents, Beth Behrs is perhaps best known for her breakout role as Caroline Channing on the comedy “2 Broke Girls,” which was created by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings and ran for six seasons on the Network.
Behr’s film credits include Walt Disney/Pixar’s “Monsters University,” the Chinese animated film “Boonie Bears: The Big Shrink” and the independent comedy “Hello, My Name Is Doris,” opposite Sally Field and her THE NEIGHBORHOOD co-star Max Greenfield.
A UCLA alum, Behrs made her New York stage debut in Halley Feiffer’s “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center of New York City.” Additional stage credits include “One Singular Sensation: Celebrating Marvin Hamlisch” at Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic, as well as performances at the Geffen Playhouse alongside Jane Lynch, Annette Bening and Helen Mirren. Currently, Behrs serves as a Geffen Playhouse board member.
In 2017 Behrs released a health and wellness book, The Total ME-Tox: How to Ditch Your Diet, Move Your Body & Love Your Life. Also, she is a co-creator and co-writer of the digital comic series “Dents,” which recently concluded its second season on the LINE Webtoon platform.
Behrs is actively involved with the charity organizations Children of the Night and American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). In 2017 she co-founded SheHerdPower, an equine therapy program for survivors of sexual assault.
