I play Marge Middleton, mayor of the tiny Oregon town taken over by the cult (led by Ra-Shawbard, played by Owen Wilson). The episodes also star the hilarious Michael Keaton and Necar Zedegan. Great cast and crew, and so much fun to shoot. Kudos to the makeup and hair wizards — every prosthetic waddle and sprayed-on age spot made Marge who she is!!

Watch the show online today!

The New York Times Critics pick "Documentary Now"

The New York Times Critics wrote about the 10 things they’re looking forward to the most in 2019, and I’m in one of them!

Look for me in the Season Premiere of IFC’s “Documentary Now” on February 20, when I’m starring in “Batsh!t Valley,” a two-episode spoof of Netflix’s “Wild Wild Country.” Seth Meyers wrote the hilarious episodes, which feature Michael Keaton, Owen Wilson, Necar Zedegan, and Gary Kraus, too.

So you have time to go watch the actual documentary, but you certainly won’t have to have seen it in order to enjoy our take on it. Set your recorders for Feb 20, and check out IFC.com to stream them after that!

Appearing on FX's "Baskets" Tuesday March 6!

Check your local listings for FX's "Baskets" next week -- I'll be appearing in the "Woman's Conference" episode. SUCH fun working with the generous and kind Louie Anderson. And wonderful to meet Jackie Garcia (playing "Jan") as well as these two talented gentlemen.

You can see the clips on my updated acting reel HERE.

Clearly, it's a very difficult job, but somebody has to do it.

On "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Sunday 11/5 on HBO

Had a great time shooting a scene with Larry David for "Curb Your Enthusiasm!" Episode 6 of season 9 airs this Sunday November 5 at 10 pm on HBO. I played a Gate Agent who is just trying her best to do her job. Such fun improv-ing this scene and working with the lovely and generous Mr. David.

Here's the teaser for the episode:

On the Screen: In ABC's "American Crime" with Felicity Huffman!

Look for me in Episode 5 of this season's "American Crime" on ABC. I play Alice, a real estate agent trying to help Jeannette, Felicity Huffman's character. It was a fun day on the set, with our wonderful director Tanya Hamilton.

I think the episode will air Sunday April 9 on ABC. Check local listings for times. Here's hoping my scene isn't cut! Hooray for the unpredictability of the business we call show!

Appearing on IFC's "Documentary Now!" with Bill Hader -- Season 2, Episode 3

Check local listings (or visit IFC.com) to watch a stellar episode of Season 2 of "Documentary Now!" with the brilliant Bill Hader, Wednesday September 28. I play a small (but extremely important!) role. 

Episode 3, "Parker Gail's Location is Everything" riffs on Spalding Gray's "Swimming to Cambodia" film (1984, Jonathan Demme, director). It's particularly meaningful to me because I love Spalding Gray's work, and it reminds me of moving to New York City in the 1980s and being inspired to write my own performance pieces. This episode nails Spalding's free association writing and performance style perfectly -- it's less a spoof than an homage, really.

It was a thrill to be invited back this season to work with Bill and directors Alex Buono and Rhys Thomas. Check it out and enjoy!

Cast in a new ABC sitcom pilot!

Excited that I nabbed a small role in a fun new ABC pilot. Shooting next week. Check back here for more details once I am authorized to blab about them!
