Girl’s Nite Out – St. Catherine’s (again!)

8 Mar

Oh hello again, St. Catherine’s. Third year in a row we’ve brought in International Women’s Day with you! And apparently we’ve already been asked back for 2021! (Assuming there is a 2021.)

Don’t tell Evira I posted this picture cause she was having a day where her hair looked GREAT in person but weird in photos… according to her. But the day was extra special to me because…

… my biological father (who I just met in November) came to see me perform for the first time ever. I know he’s my daddio cause man do we ever have the same nose or what?

Dadsy even got to meet my super handsome fella-man. What a crazy-ass night.

Girl’s Nite Out – Collingwood, Ontario

7 Feb

So great to be back for the second year in a row at the Collingwood Legion for another sold out Girl’s Nite Out show on International Women’s Day weekend.

Shout out to our second-half talk show guest, 95 year-old Joyce who used to be a microbiologist. At 85 she got bored and started taking flying lessons. You know AS ONE DOES AT 85.

She could not for the life of her figure out what we wanted her to do in the ‘audience sound effects’ scene, but it was the best kind of gong-show.

Improv in Algonquin

13 Sep

Sometimes you get asked to do an improv show with two of your best friends, Ashely Comeau and Karen Parker in weird-ass places. Like a camp in the middle of nowhere in September that you have to take a rickety boat to get to, filled with women, yoga and a lot of wine.

The weather is rainy and terrible and it feels like the beginning of a horror movie…

But then you realize you can do a show in matching plaid shirts and it all feels a little better…

And then the show is over and you’re drinking with a hundred wicked women and Karen gets this crazy cool shot…

And that’s when you realize your day job of making people laugh is pretty damn good.

Girls Nite Out @ The Globus Theatre (Bobcaygeon)

Love love LOVE doing shows with these maniacs and we’re back at the gorgeous Globus Theatre in Bobcaygeon with our mix of stand-up and improv comedy.

Somehow, whenever it comes time for backstage selfies, Elvira Kurt is nowhere to be found. Then she comes in, sees we’re doing selfies and yells at us for not including her in the selfies. So enjoy the most recent round of selfies sans Elvira. (No idea where Jennine Profetta went in the last pic, but Karen Parker and I are clearly horrified/amused.)

Ladies Against Humanity @ The Rio Theatre

21 Mar

Always a pleasure to knock some dirty improv out of the park with these crazy ladies. Thanks to Daniel Chai and The Fictionals for inviting me to play Ladies Against Humanity. Oh god, the number of vagina jokes we did…

So much fun playing with Angela, Rae-Lyn, Clare, Margret, Ese, Denise and Alex. Everyone’s hair is so on point in this photo.

Girl’s Nite Out – St. Catherines

8 Mar

What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than two sold out shows at the First Ontario Place in St. Catherines with Jan Caruana, Jennine Profeta, Elvira Kurt and token piano-playing man, Kevin Baker.

Even the name of the town is a lady!

Girl’s Nite Out – 2018 East Coast Tour

4 Feb

Travelling with these nut bars (Jennine Profeta, Elvira Kurt, Karen Parker and piano-man Kevin Barker) to Fredericton, St. John and Annapolis Royal was a god damn delight.

This tour had it all. Sold out shows, standing ovations, tiny SUV’s, treacherous stretches of highway, an audience member telling us about how she fisted an airline pilot (true story) boxes of wine, freezing feet, amazing nachos, a bread phone and so many laughs.

Improv in Ireland – Grand Stretch

13 Oct

You know what makes the Irish laugh? Everything. Even before the show starts.

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 1.47.28 PM.png

Got to perform the inaugural TheatreSports Ireland show thanks to this hard working fella,  Darren Yorke of Grand Stretch Improv.

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 1.47.40 PM.png

Got too drunk/excited to take a cast photo, but Darren joined me, Denise Jones, Michael Teigen, Dan Dumsha, Duane Keogh, and special guest Dave Keogh on guitar. Here are some of us, already drinking before the show started.

Second City on the Norwegian Gem

8 Sep

Oh man – this was the VERY last contract that Second City has with NCL. Due to a cast member’s family emergency, I got to swoop in for a week and get one last taste of that delicious sea life on the Norwegian Gem.

There were no better people in the world to get caught in a post-lobster roll Maine downpour than these beautiful maniacs.
