*134 live shows including five 30 minute sets
*opening for Helen Hong at the St. Jo Frontier Casino &
*Dobie Maxwell at Milwaukee’s Northern Lights Theater
*Hosting & writing for the Midnight Parade at Second City
*Scruggs fest

*Playing Amelia Earhart and Thomas Jefferson in Mr. Pat’s sketch show. Oh and this taco video!!

Here’s to an even more productive 2015!

1994-2013 RIP Peapod, RIP

A week ago today I had to put my beautiful cat-child to sleep.

We’ve been together for (what feels like) my whole life, certainly my entire adult life. And while I’m incredibly sad & miss her terribly, I recognize how lucky I was to have her with me for so long. Through many cross-country moves, breakups, & career changes…she’s always been right there at my side. She escorted me into adulthood, into finding myself, my voice, and my passion. There’s not one video I’ve made where she hasn’t been in my life. She even guest starred in some:

I couldn’t have asked for a better friend & companion; & never dreamed that when my friend casually asked, “hey, you want a kitten?” and I answered, “sure!” that I was making an almost 19 year commitment. #SoBlessed #SoManyMemories #NeverForget

Happy Mother’s Day to all! Including not “regular” mothers!

I made another drunk girl video to celebrate mother’s day. It’s disappointing that single Pet Moms aren’t recognized more. Well, here you go.
Especially since my cat (who also happens to be a movie star) (here and also here) has been with me for 18 years! That’s gotta count for something, right? Right. Happy Mother’s day to all you cat moms, dog moms, hamster moms, squirrel moms…whatever. Enjoy your day!

Friday I saw an article about people suing Anheuser-Busch for diluting their beer. Then I read that the plaintiffs hadn’t tested any samples to prove their accusation. Hilarious! I started to write a joke but realized this was way more than one joke, and *AHA* *Epiphany* I finally had a reason to play drunk!

ps, I LOVE LOVE LOVE pretending to be drunk. I don’t know why I find it so much fun, especially since I’m not at all a drinker (I get sick and think I’m allergic but that’s another story for another day).

Anywhoo, I thought it would be fun to do the bit SNL-Weekend Update style. It got lots of views & likes right away, so I am super excited!

Thanks for watching!
