Well its mid May and what a busy month its been! With stand-up shows, improv shows, podcasts, photo shoots and an SNL showcase time has been flying by!
First and foremost, my preliminary SNL showcase! I’m proud to say that I knocked it out of the park with a few celebrity impressions, including Jennifer Lawrence doing charity work in Uganda and a handfull of homemade characters. My fingers are crossed and prayers are said that I have what it takes to make it to the next audition…since I’ve only been dreaming of this since the age of 10.
Improv, improv, improv…thats how I’ve been spending my free time, and none free time. My new group, Schoolyard Chums was just accepted to be part of the iO West 11th Annual Improv Fest! Stayed tuned for more on that and another group that’s in the works!
Lights, camera, fitness! That’s right, I was honored to be asked by Eden Sassoon to be part of her Pilates Studio photo shoot. It was painful but fun to pose for hours on the Pilates Plus Proformers in Beverly Hills. As soon as the pictures are up, you’ll know!
Also, on the fitness note, I stopped in 2 Smart Dumbbells last week to chat with Brandon about
In just a few short weeks I’ll be taking one step closer to my dream of being on Saturday Night Live! I’m still in disbelief over this fantastic news and can’t wait to showcase all my crazy characters! Stay tuned for more!
Between improv, gathering new stand-up material and my winning debut on the Price Is Right, its been a hectic few months! I’m hoping that my winning streak will carry on throughout the week as I take the stage in two different stand-up competitions!
The first being Monday March 18th at Paladino’s in Tarzana, the show is free so if you’re in the area swing by! The jokes start at 9p and the audience will cast the vote to decide who is the funniest, most original comedian.
The second one, Im proud to announce is part of the iO West Scripted Comedy Festival. I’ll be challenging other talented comedians for the chance to be the opening act for Main Stage shows, plus of course, bragging rights. That all goes down Thursday March 21st (where did the time go!) at 11:30pm at iO West.
Check the calendar for more details and as always, hope to hear ya laughing!
Well, the improv Lottery that is. Yes I have been selected to be a part of the Lottery show at I.O. West Improv Theater in Hollywood.
The Lottery features a student from every level of classes. This mashup of students comes together to form a hilarious long form improv show every Friday night for a month! That’s right, just a month! So don’t delay, get out and see me and my fellow peers asap!
The Lottery @ I.O. West - 11/30, 12/7, 12/14, 12/21 @7:30

Well the fall has finally arrived and so has my new material! I’ll be showcasing it at the Hollywood Improv this Thursday night with Lesley Wolff’s hilarious and extremely talented ‘Fresh Faces’ comedy show. I couldn’t be more thrilled about this opportunity and working with Lesley has been a fantastic learning and growing experience and has opened so many doors…including one to truTV where I got to play a ‘white trash thief’! (Thanks Lesley!)
That said, the fall has also brought me into the infamous I.O. West program. Although I have years of short form improv experience with my team In Rare Form I thought I’d take advantage of living the same city as one of the best improv schools, so there I am. Learning more and expanding my improv skills and network. I’ll be sure to keep you posted about my progress and show times at I.O. West!
Till then, come catch me on stage this Thursday 10/11 at 7:30pm @ The Hollywood Improv OR Saturday 10/13 at 9:30pm @ Flappers in Burbank.
The end of summer is just around the corner but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! After an exhausting but fun filled summer, loaded with sun burns, work, adventures and both improv and stand-up shows its time to get back down to business. For reals! I’m happy and proud to announce that come September I’ll be enrolling in the infamous IO West improv to brush up and expand my long form improv skills as well as a new comedy writing course. So stay tuned for all good things to come! In the meantime, go catch some waves while you still can (and don’t forget the sunscreen) ; )
Back in the days of working production not only are you constantly surround by outlandish request, but also outlandish props. Also, around hour 11 on day 7 you begin to ‘loose it’ a bit…or become more genius…watch and decide for yourself.
Summer is here that means time for fun in sun, vacations and lots of laughs! I was fortunate enough to take a two week vacation to Europe where I collected lots of new material that will be hitting the stage soon. Until then, you can catch me with my short form improv group In Rare Form performing off the cuff laughs all around town (see calendar). And as always, my blog: j9gyspyeyes.blogspot. com will be airing my most recent rants and adventures.

April is being showered with opportunities and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m proud to announce that I won my very first comedy award, a ‘Tappy’ for being hilarious. Thanks to the great producers and people of ‘Laughs on Tap’.
Other than that, I kicked off the month at a new venue, the Marina/Venice Yatch Club and even tested the waters at the Hollywood Improv! And people actually laughed! How exciting!
