I've been directing for the stage for a couple of years. But this January I shot my first ever short film, Trapped. Trapped is a short about two women who get locked in a bathroom together and freak the f*ck out. I wrote, directed and produced. My producing partners were the immensely talented Jane Renaud and my fellow actor Emilea Wilson, who stars in the film with me. Shot by the wonderful Matt Klammer with sound by Tom Tierney. Trapped is currently being edited and will be released soon! Check back for updates!
I've cut a new hosting reel. I'm available for Oscars, Golden Globes, etc. Carrie McCrossen Hosting Reel from Carrie McCrossen on Vimeo.
I was so proud to appear on this great new show, (which is getting all sorts of good buzz!) I have just one line, but it was a ton of fun to shoot! Watch here!
The end of summer has been busy with lots of travel and visiting family. But there's also been some fun work stuff going on! Here's an update! July saw the final performance of All in Favor; a Meeting of the Beulah, North Dakota Town Council, a one-act sketch show that ran at UCB since the end of last year. We are taking the show out to LA for one night only this fall. (Save the date- Tuesday, October 10th, 9:30PM at UCB Franklin.) Last month I shot several new projects- a short sketch I wrote and star in- (coming soon,) and a pilot presentation created by Dave Ebert, Davram Stieffler and Drew Freed, and directed by the great Jared Lapidus. I've had several more pieces featured by Funny or Die. And last…
It's been a busy few months! Here's an update! After several months as a must-join, I recently joined SAG-AFTRA for a role on HBO's Divorce. It's a show I've enjoyed watching so I was very happy to be a part of the second season. And the shoot was lots of fun! I had a couple more pieces featured on Funny or Die. Here they are: What Did the President Know and When Did He Know It; A timeline, and A Fox News Vacation Guide. In addition to that, I directed a new musical reading, and a sketch show at UCB, (Maude Night- for those of you who know what that is.) I also did a couple SAG voiceover gigs and a branded content gig for Schick. And I went to…

I believe every actress has a moment where she considers getting her yoga certification. I never did. But I got to pretend like it for this YES Network promo. You'll spot some former Yankees and current sportscasters, (who were all very nice!) in this promo directed by Jack Helmuth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npDsEqL_zhQ
I'm the host of this new series on The Kicker, (by Above Average.) It's called "How to Fan" and it teaches you everything you need to know about being a sports fan, like how to become a losing meme! These were written by Zack Phillips and directed by Adam Sacks. (Two very fun people.) Watch:
My new show begins its run at UCB this month! Come see ALL IN FAVOR, (description below.) I wrote this for the actors of my old UCB team One Idiot and it's a lot of fun to be working with them again. It's a sketch show and a farce and an all-around good time. Municipal operations! Sweetheart deals! And of course, Dairy Queen! Sick of Washington politics? Head on down to Main Street, USA why don'tcha? The town council will vote on activities for the Annual Winter Fair and debate whether books are important! A one-act farce about the minutiae of small town politics, (brought to you by the Monsanto Corporation.) Directed by Leslie Meisel. Written by Carrie McCrossen. Starring Caroline Cotter, David Ebert, Claire Epstein, Drew Freed, Carrie McCrossen,…
