Whew! It's been a crazy couple of weeks over here, but it's all the "good" kind of crazy. And there's even more fun stuff coming up.

Joe's Pub at the Public, $25
I am beyond thrilled to be returning to Joe's Pub with the fantastic and long-running Loser's Lounge as they present their tribute to the great Joni Mitchell! Be sure to grab your tickets as this show usually sells out. Helmed by the wonderful Joe McGinty.

"Gut Reaction" Film Screening

I'm in the movies! Well, a 10 minute film short, but still...MOVIES!

Steve Burns (Emmy-nominated host of "Blues Clues") and Alexis Sottile (Rolling Stone) teamed up to make the very funny film short, "Gut Reaction." I play an emotional over-eater who basically loses her sh*t at a party upon seeing her ex. Also, I get to make out with a dude. Good times all around!

Big thanks to Steve and Alexis for casting me and to the Bad Film Festival for our debut screening! Here's a shot of my giant mug on the big screen!

Cry-eating my feelings away. Just another night...
And a screen grab just for fun. Plus, I love carbs.


A Welk of a Time!

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out for the debut performance of "Wunnerful Wunnerful" at Joe's Pub! We had a fantastic time with this show which featured everything from tap dancing lumberjacks to soulful not-quite-sister ballads.

We couldn't have asked for a better debut. Thank you! And a special thanks to co-creator and co-host James Bewley for having Geraldine Shirley (that's me!) as a part of this project.

And stay tuned for some exciting news involving "Wunnerful Wunnerful" coming this summer. Yee haw!

NY Post Launches New Comedy Website! And I'm On It!

The NY Post recently launched their brand new comedy website "Internet Action Force" (or IAF for short). It's loaded with hilarious original content about current topics and pop culture, and I'm so excited to be a part of their "Americans React" series!

Watch as we the American people react to such ground breaking things as...books! Mirrors! Vegetables! You name it, we tackle it--with the hard-hitting, news-worthy, nail-biting, honest-to-god reactions of true first-timers! You can catch all of the Americans React videos right here! And be sure to spread the love. We "honestly" appreciate it!
