Canadian Screen Awards 2018

12 Mar

Had a great time writing with these maniacs on the Canadian Screen Awards. Those maniacs being Steve Dylan, Graham Chittenden, Fraser Young and of course hosts Emma Hunter and Jonny Harris – who I stupidly didn’t get photos of.

But I did go total fan-girl and get a picture with Kim Coates – cause c’mon. Tig!!

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!

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.

Improv in Ireland – Grand Stretch

13 Oct

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.




JFL Galas

30 Jun

Every once in a while, life gives you what I call a ‘Pony Day.’


Here me out. So… if you subscribe to the whole ‘life is a gift’ theory – then every day is like unwrapping a present, right? Most of the time, that day unwraps and is kinda boring. Like you’re getting socks. Cool cool, we all need socks. But THEN… some days, a phone call or email will make the day unwrap itself with a huge surprise. Like you just got given a pony.

I was in the Calgary airport leaving the Banff World Media Festival, where I’d written the Rockie Awards Gala monologue for Anthony Anderson (Blackish). JFL producer Bruce Hills was in the audience – he loved the monologue – and hired me to write for the JFL Galas. THAT was a ‘Pony Day.’


Along with Dean Jenkinson, I got to write the Gala scripts for Laverne Cox and Jane Krakowski. It was my first time at JFL. Hopefully not my last.

Girl’s Night Out – Barrie ON

14 Apr

Screen Shot 2017-05-05 at 1.46.03 AMIs there anything more fun that four wickedly hilarious women performing for a group of wickedly appreciative women? Yes. When there’s a guy on piano.

Thanks Jennine Proffeta, Karen Parker, Kevin J. Baker and our hilarious host Laurie Elliot.

I will never forget ‘Over-Sharon’ who pulled her entire skirt over her head while gyrating suggestively towards me.
