I was born, bred, married, spawned, and divorced
in Detroit, Michigan
and to make matters worse I did most
of that twice. Well, now make that thrice. Oh yeah
my ex-husbands are remarried, very happy, and love each other
very much. Just kidding
they're not happy. I started out
in show biz at the age of 3.
I would go to tables in restaurants and engage people in conversation
while they ate their egg foo yung. I was charming until I started
eating off their plates. My mom, being my first agent, gave me
the hook often and dragged me back to our own table. Nobody ever
said "let's do lunch".
At 6, my parents acquiesced to my talent and gave me enough lessons
to be the next Sammy Davis Jr. I took tap, ballet, modern jazz,
singing, clarinet, you name it, I did it. I was a walking lounge
act waiting to happen. In high school, it was drama classes. After
school, the theater. Then marriage ended all that and I became
a wife, mother, and eating machine.
It was during this time I started cooking, baking, and eating
every thing in sight. This lasted through 2 marriages, 1 child,
and 16 scales. I became a vegetarian, but this just made me eat
more pizzas and cake. (Both meatless) I decided to exercise, but
that just made me hungrier. I decided to take diet pills, but
that just made me eat faster. After many years of working at a
veterinary hospital and a law office, and raising my daughter,
I finally found myself in show biz. I became a stand up comic.
A friend told me about a comedy club in Detroit and I worked on
my "schtick" until I got a spot on that stage and that
was the beginning. I talked about dieting, sex, and my life in
general. This was more fun than the proverbial barrel of monkeys.
So I continue to talk about dieting, and sex, and my life in general
and "Thanks be to God" as my grandma would say, I was
successful and even nominated for the 11th & 13th Annual American
I have worked in radio, television, movies, and
theater and will continue to do so for as long as my audiences
will have me.
Now Im back, and starting new journeys. I
want to do More TV, More Movies, More stand-up, More everything.
More, More, More!!!
Bring it on!!
