About Poppy Champlin
There’s just something about Poppy. She is a veteran comic whose sharp wit and intuitive jokes can penetrate the heart of any discerning audiences funny bone. Looking urban cool she erupts onto the stage, with a hip, fearless and in your face style of comedy. Spitting out jokes, quips, songs, impressions, interactions, bird calls and with deep resources to draw from, all of Poppy’s’ shows can be described as spin art – “No two alike.”  Poppy is crackerjack at the craft of Improv. Throw anything at her and watch as she magically turns it into comedic fodder.  Having graduated from the University of R.I with a degree in Theatre she then went on to the Famed Chicago Second City Improv School. Champlin is one of the quickest witted comedians working either coast today.  She has a wild and roaming spontaneity, which makes each show actually; feel like one of a kind. She is a powerful performer who can glide between practiced patter and off the cuff insightful improvisation. Poppy’s experience with classic standup and Improv, gives her a double-barreled flexibility that works particularly well with her subjects of choice. Besides Poppy’s deep comedic chops, she actually has a seriously good voice that she puts to use during her performance making sure to end every show on a good note.

“Poppy was a freakin’ ball of comedic thunder,” says one fan
“The best comedian I have seen since Whoopi Goldberg” Says another

Her stand-up pedigree is flawless; from her latest SHOWTIME SPECIAL: PRIDE: The Gay and Lesbian Comedy Slam hosted by Bruce Vilanch to her LOGO SPECIALS: ONE NIGHT STAND-UP, to Oprah Winfrey, and a featured story on Entertainment Tonight, as she was the winner of America’s Funniest Real Woman on The Joan Rivers Show, to a panel guest on Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, Poppy can also be seen working on the formidable cruise lines with Atlantis and Olivia cruises.

Poppy has opened for such comics as Ray Ramano, Denis Leary, Bill Maher, Bill Hicks and Rosie O’Donnell.  Her club appearances are many ranging from Gotham Comedy Club in NYC the Comedy Cellar and The Improvs, Laugh Factory and all in between.

When Poppy hit tinsel town, she continued to perform stand-up as well as study acting at the Larry Moss studios and has since put up her critically acclaimed One Woman Show,  "A Chocolate Sandwich.” Most recently Poppy had a featured role in “Titanic The Musical” at the Courthouse Center for The Performing Arts in Kingston R.I.

She was a staff writer for Fox’s  Show Me The Funny, in Hollywood California.

She wrote, starred in and produced, her character driven comedy pilot called News you Can't Use, think Tracy Ulman takes on the News.
Poppy has an appearance on “All Aboard Rosie’s Family Vacation” made into an Emmy nominated documentary.
She is a producer of her own tour called, The Queer Queens of Qomedy, now in it's ninth year. She travels all over the country with this tour.
She performed for over 25.000 people in the closing ceremonies of the Gay Games in Chicago.  She has performed for troops in both Japan and Korea.  She was invited to perform in South Africa, at The Cape Town Comedy Festival.  

Poppy tackles tough subjects with ease.  In this comedienne’s hands we can laugh at life’s most formidable perils... and laughter that ravages fear is the best kind of all.
