Violet Krumbein graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in the Experimental Theater Wing. She recently had a guest star role on STARZ network series Gravity, co star role in NBC pilot "Off Duty," Emo Girl in MTV's "College Humor Show," Rich Girl Zombie in Adult Swim's "Fat Guy Stuck in Internet," and Jackie Silverstein in Campbell Scott's feature film "Company Retreat." Her show Human Painkiller, which she wrote and performed, recently closed, but check out some blurbs from reviews:
"Did I mention that I never stopped barking with laughter? I hate to do those if-this-person-and-that-person-had-a-baby etc., but here goes: she has the child-like staring-contest-winning confidence of Andy Kaufman; the anti-polish and audacity of any John Waters regular circa *Pink Flamingos*; and yet beneath the insta-friendliness and endearing eccentricity, she has all the crowd-pleasing impulses of Sandra Bernhard on a very bad day. Thus she is a master of comedy - but comedy on her own terms."

"Dazzling. Startling. Laugh-out-loud hilarious. Violet Krumbein's one-woman romp is called Human Painkiller, and for good reason, because I'm not sure how anyone can still feel pain after a half-hour with Krumbein, unless you're hurting from laughing so much."
Sean McCarthy - comicscomic.com
"Violet Krumbein creates a world where hilariously insensitive characters interact with a cloying protagonist who just wants to make people happy. Violet Krumbein IS the human painkiller.
