Back in college, my mother had to endure me getting raped in nearly every play she saw. And if not raped, then going slowly insane. She would always say afterward, “you were very good, honey, but you’re so funny! Why don’t you ever do comedy?” Well, to make it up to her, I have done almost exclusively comedy since entering into the “professional” world of acting. And here are some clips to prove it.

This was my TV debut on Tosh.0, getting thwacked expertly in the ladyparts. Mom is proud. As are all my Russian movement and stage combat teachers from grad school, no doubt. (I’m at the end on “Game Ovaries”… don’t blink!)

(And then I was part of a group tazing in a recent episode… starting to look like a series regular!)

As the networks aren’t banging down the doors to book me– YET!!!, I’ve resorted to making my own funny things and posting them online. Because my stuff is probably funnier than their stuff anyway. Check “Sketch” for, well, obvs, some sketches I– and other people– wrote and shot, and “Music videos” for the totally sweet-ass oeuvre of my alter ego 2k.

I also try to get up and out with improv or standup, which I find I can do while hiding behind the cutest of musical instruments, the ukulele. Evidence of this is on the “Live!” page.

    It’s a fine line, and its hard to do it well, but I think Tosh has fantastic veridely.Unapologetic, awkward, childish- yet so far beyond decent. I think this phenomenon has something to do with our tolerance for shock value..and the number we get, the further we have to go, making it very hard to distinguish where funny ends and troubling begins. Great post , thank you!
