Years ago, Rebecca Bivens happened to be bored at a non-acting temp day job-and was entertaining her fellow colleagues by imitating the voice of their big boss. Knowing she was an actress-one of her colleagues said to her-You are so good at that-do you do things on the radio? After that-she set out to make that happen! Ms. Bivens has been heard online, as well as on the radio in spots for Hewlett Packard, Reliant Energy Radio and just finished recording a commercial for Long Island City Rehabilitation Care Center.
When it comes to voices, Ms. Bivens is also an excellent mimic and uses her wide range of vocal and improvisational skills as a professional character performer in the corporate and private party circuit. She is booked to create and/or emulate any type of character upon request, and notable personalities such as Mae West, Gloria Swanson from Sunset Boulevard; Edith Bunker, Gracie Allen, Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller. Ms. Bivens also has an extensive professional stage background and received her B.A. from the University of Houston School of Theatre. She resides in Houston with her husband and two children and four cats! During the holidays-Ms. Bivens loves to drive family and friends crazy by imitating every character in every scene from the Rankin/Bass Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman or Twas the Night Before Xmas!
