Beth Stelling Featured on PBS Documentary "Modern Comedian"

The web series "Modern Comedian" is a collection of engaging, short documentary videos, produced by Scott Moran and is Part of the PBS Digital Studios network. The general gist is that Moran follows various comedians around with a camera highlighting elements of their life, personalities, etc., and how that impacts their lifestyle as a comedian. The result is a lot more interesting/funny than it might sound, past episodes have featured comic heavyweights like Jim Gaffigan which is excellent. Beth Stelling, former Chicago comic now based in LA, is the latest comic to be featured. Beth, if your not familiar, was just named #2 on a list of “12 L.A. Comedy Acts to Watch in 2013” by LA Weekly. She was also a New Face of Comedy at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and made her standup television debut on TBS’s Conan. In this episode Beth talks about her sugar addiction and how it's basically rotted out her teeth.
