who is this chick?
Brittany Pilgrim (formally Brittany Raper as she is recently married) spent 5 years studying, living and working in New York City. During that time, she got her BFA in Acting from New York University training in theatre/film and acted in Off-Off Broadway productions, New York theatre productions and various short and feature films. One of the feature films she acted in, The Last Christmas Party, is now available on Amazon Prime.
She also worked at a casting office, at an acting agency, and created NYC's first & only all-female stand up comedy training and production company, Women Stand Up. As WSU Co-Founder, Producer & Owner, she sold out off-off broadway theaters, led over 40 women through their first time doing stand up and built a business that is still alive today. She also performed as a comedian herself at Gotham Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club and The People's Improv Theatre.
Though it was hard to leave her badass community of beautiful talented women behind, she has since moved her work back to beautiful BC where she grew up.
Brittany works as an actor based in Vancouver under the representation of CMT International with Linda Carter. One of her short films, Clay Pots (2021, New York Independent Film Awards official selection) premiered in the fall of 2021. Brittany has recently shot a feature horror film with director Micheal Bafaro that will release this winter. She is also busy modeling, producing brand videos and always creating.
Brittany also worked as Producer at Kludak, a local film production company. There she represented the female energy of the team, working alongside talented filmmakers Cam MacArthur, Christopher Driscoll, Jasper Sassaman, Michael Makaroff and Dylan Hollingsworth. She had the best time being a part of Kludak’s collaborative, caring, fun, and excellent collection of creators.
