Pamela Murphy

Pamela Murphy has been studying and performing at the UCB Theatre since 2003. She is ecstatic to be a member of the Harold team Standard Oil and the Maude team Arbuckle. Pam’s solo show, The C Word, a show she wrote about her experience with breast cancer, was named The Best Solo Show of 2010 by Time Out NY and was nominated for an ECNY award. Other past UCB credits include performances with the Harold teams Havana Clambake, Killebrew, Kill Your Darlings and DeCoster, the Maude Team, Slow Burn, and in the UCBT shows Killgore:The New Blood, B-Roll: Fact or Fiction, Sketch Cram, Glue Trap Theatre, Blackout, MOther Knows Best, The Hogwarts Improvisation Society, The It Sucked Awards, Marx the Spot, and as an Irish superhero in The Iron Sheikh. Pam also directed the currently running UCB show, Thin Skin Jonny:Farewell Reunion Tour. She has appeared on Late NIght with Jimmy Fallon, the pilot Bad Parents, a slew of commercials and a ridiculous amount of internet videos. When not performing, Pamela spends her free time spoiling her skittish dogs. Those dogs really do love her.
