My Weird Comedy Life: Updates From the Past Year

From here on out I will try to update every month or two about projects, ways to see me live or on the Internet.  But for now I'll try to update all relative information that I've missed telling you all about after taking a blog vacation, as well as share with you some milestones I've hit and changes I've made!
Podcast News! I've been in a few lately in 2019.  I feel like I'm missing one or two, but these are the ones I'm remembering as I type this post out.
Mystery in the Radiowaves Podcast My genius friend, Elizabeth McIrvin (she took these photos from THIS POST and I have two more posts where she played photog for me coming up) started an improv podcast where old radio plays from the 1930s are read by actors and then improvisers start scenes based on what happened in the play.  Liz does a million really interesting things, so you all should follow her HERE (and her PODCAST) to see her career blossom right in front of you.  I really respect not only her id…

Hollywood Nonsense

My friend Justin lives in Hollywood and we hung out one night with only the loose plans of eventually taking photos and doing some read throughs and rehearsals for Raquel & Friends.  We didn't take too many photos, but here's some of me trolling around Hollywood.  I'm wearing a 1970s vintage apron dress and a Poison concert tee.  And Nike flip-flops, because I've gotten oh-so classy since moving to Los Angeles.  His fur felt very soft.  When you kind of match the lights...  True Life: My Hair and Face Were Unusually Greasy On This Day Don't hassle me...I'm a local!  Have I mentioned I can fly???  Do the flip flops kill the outfit? 😆  He would never hurt me. Too close? Ok, he hurt me. You'd have crazy eyes too if a blue balloon graffiti dog bit you too! I'm a flamingo now.

Atlanta's Center for Puppetry Arts

I took a last minute trip to Atlanta, Georgia and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was a museum not only dedicated to puppets, but two thirds of said museum dedicated to Jim Henson's puppetry.  I had seen the Jim Henson Exhibit when it went to Skirball in Los Angeles over the summer with my former puppet team, though I never posted photos from there on here despite making a draft (maybe one day I'll do that!).  Center for the Puppetry Arts in Atlanta was amazing and made me the happiest puppeteer in all of the world.  Here are some photos from that trip!
 Price of admission. Kermit stole my pose idea... If I was the type of girl to do vision boards I'd put this photo of Jim Henson's office on my vision board over a photo that represents a trip to Europe...  Trying to take a photo in uneven lighting with a light up stained glass backlighting you is oh-so-fun....😞 Oh hey, just watching the television set in the 1950s!  Change of address.  Checking to s…

Improv With My Dog

I have some pretty heavy posts concerning grief heading your way so I thought I'd break you in slowly by taking a hard left turn and instead sharing the most ridiculous thing I've done in a very long time: improv with one of my dogs.  (Mind you, I do perform with puppets very regularly so this was ridiculous even for me).
Tough the Bear is a VERY fun indie show that has several shows a month at LA Connection Comedy Theater in Burbank and each show has a different hook: improv, sketch, characters, bits. Etc. What's a bit? Well, that's something that is largely debated in regards to what a stage bit is.  But my definition is doing an inside joke that the audience in on (probably something extra silly or not grounded) but playing it straight as if you're serious.
I got asked by one of the show runners to plan a bit and ultimately that led to me emailing him, "Hey, on a scale of "THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!" to "what are you thinking you crazy pers…
