Carrie Barrett is an American playwright, actress, artist and comedian. She reprises her role as Mary Gaperman in Danger Force.

Biography

She grew up a very tall and awkwardly skinny child in a small town in southern Virginia. After four angsty high school years mostly spent laying on the floor listening to angry and depressing music, she studied fine art at University of Illinois at Chicago. While in art school, she started studying long-form improv at the legendary comedy theater, iO Chicago. She would go on to perform, direct and teach improv and sketch comedy there there and all over Chicago before enrolling for an MFA in Writing for the Screen & Stage at Northwestern University.

Her plays have been produced or developed at The National Playwrights Conference at The Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center, Lincoln Center Director’s Lab, Great Plains Theatre Conference, Humanitas Play LA Workshop, Skylight Theatre Company (LA), Sideshow Theatre (Chicago), Kitchen Dog Theatre (Dallas), Gotham Stage Company (NYC), among others. Her play Colonel's Chicken: A Fairy Tale won a 2017 Holland New Voices award and the critically acclaimed production of her comedy Focus Group Play was LAWeekly’s “Pick of the Week” and LA Stage Times called it “A real time gem.” She was one of five playwrights selected for the inaugural Humanitas/Center Theatre Group’s Play LA Workshop and is one of thirty playwrights in the Los Angeles collective, The Playwrights Union.

As an actor, she plays the daffy news anchor, Mary Gaperman, on Nickelodeon’s longest running live-action show, Henry Danger. Other television credits include Uncle Buck on CBS, the ABC pilot United We Fall, the TBS pilot Untapped, and Partners on FX. Carrie also appeared in a supporting role opposite Jon Daly and Kurt Braunohler in the JASH short film Brown and starred in the short film Room Service, which won Best Comedy Short at North Hollywood CineFest and won her Best Actress at 2019 LA Comedy Festival.

A veteran of the Chicago and Los Angeles sketch and improv communities, her comedy shows have been produced most notably at i.O. Theaters (Chicago & LA), SketchMelt at Nerdist (LA), Dubtopia! (LA), American Town Hall (LA), Second City Chicago Unhinged, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Piccolo Spoletto Fringe (Charleston) and Chicago Sketch Fest. She has appeared in over 40 national commercials and has worked with directors such as Roman Coppola, Lance Acord, Joe Pytka, Martin Granger, Rick Sittig, and Clay Weiner, to name a few.

In her spare time she makes things, watches YouTube cooking shows and looks at pictures of bats. All this (and more!) while maintaining a very active Instagram account![1]
