Toronto ACTRA Awards 2018

25 Feb

One of the easiest gigs a gal can get is writing the opening monologue of the 2018 Toronto ACTRA Awards for one of Canada’s funniest and best improvisers, Colin Mochrie. He makes everything hilarious.

And when his adorable actor/comedian wife Deb McGrath joins him on stage? Just sit back and listen to the laughs roll in.

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.

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

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

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.
