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…
My 2016 short film For Maya, directed by Alex Fischer, which I co-wrote and co-star in with Kassia Miller, is finally up online for all to see! For Maya was an official selection of the HollyShorts Film Festival, the Nitehawk Film Festival, Brooklyn Comedy Festival Shorts and the High Falls International Film Festival. And now it's a Vimeo Staff Pick! And you can watch it in its entirety on Vimeo: For Maya from Alex H Fischer on Vimeo.
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,…

Lots of exciting new things in-the-works for 2017! My newest sketch show/one-act play is going up at the UCB on January 12th. (Hopefully with more performances next month!) It's called ALL IN FAVOR; a Meeting of the Beulah, North Dakota Town Council. If you like the minutia of small town politics in middle American, then you'll love this show! Expect new web videos later this month and early next. (Including video of a live performance of all new characters!) In February, I'll be coming to LA to perform my solo show, MILP: Moms I'd Like to Portray. MILP enjoyed a successful nine-month run at UCB NY. I'm excited to perform it again for the West Coast set. And that same week, Rumpleteaser- Musical Improv will be performing their celebrated improvised…
For Maya was shown in two more festivals this week. Our team really enjoyed watching the other shorts and getting to meet fellow filmmakers.
