BRITTNEY PETTUS

Brittney Pettus is an actress and comedic improviser whose fiery personality is evident from the tip of her toes, to the top of her bright red hair. Her fondness with the entertainment industry was instilled in her as a young child. Her father was the host of his very own show at their local radio station K-MIX 106.3, and her sister was a talented singer who traveled all over the world with singers, songwriters, and record producers of the 90’s such as Montell Jordan and Tamia. As a wide eyed kid, she absorbed the exhilarating experiences and from there on she would chase the spotlight to follow in her family's footsteps. After being a spectator at a Groundlings show in Los Angeles, she fell in love with the unpredictability and spontaneity of unscripted comedy. She later perform with various improv groups  such as The Imps, The Unpredictables, and Comedy Illuminati. She dominated the stage with her comedy all over Hollywood, the Antelope Valley, and the Pasadena Ice House. Currently, she assumes the title of artistic director of the hilariously witty improv troupe, Zebra. But don’t let her silly demeanor fool you, she takes her comedy very seriously. She began to challenge herself even further, and immersed herself in the theater world. She performed in plays such as “Pocahontas”, “A Changed Life”, and “Some Give All” produced by Destiny Fletcher, as well as “The Presidents Little Angels” produced by Craig Tappa. She’s been featured on commercials, and independent film work such as the YouTube series “Opposites” as Dr Alex Mayford Johnson, and modeled in the YouTube series of polaroid challenges produced by Faolan Freeman. When she isn’t entertaining, she works as a medical biller for an optometrist. But her biggest accomplishment is being the mother of an amazing 15 year old young lady, Saniyah and a doting daughter to her wonderfully supportive mother, Donna.
