Look for "Reporter Deb" on Veep's Final Season on HBO

Starting 3/31, I’ll be appearing in a few episodes of the final season of HBO’s “Veep” as “Reporter Deb.” It was such a fun gig over the years to be on a great set, full of supportive, smart, kind, and talented people. A big thanks to Allison Jones Casting and Dorian & Sibby Casting, for bringing me in, and a fond salute to every single person I worked with on that show.

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!

Performing in Moving Arts Theater Company Holiday Fundraiser!

Come support local theater and see me perform a ten-minute two-hander with the talented Mark Taylor at the Moving Arts Holiday Party/Fundraiser on December 15. We’ll be performing “Yuletime” by Lee Wochner, a moving short piece about a couple finding their way through tragedy during the holiday.

Every year Moving Arts has a holiday fundraising event at the home of one of their Board members. There will be food, drink, auction items, and site-specific plays. Moving Arts will be showing its unique form of storytelling by presenting five plays in different areas around a very nicely appointed house, nestled in the Hollywood Hills.

It all starts at 6:00 p.m. on Sat, Dec 15. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here. Hope to see you there!
