Not only did Jane Austen's Emma Frankenstein win the Serial Killers playoffs this season (YAAAY), but Mint Mint Doodles designed this! It's us! We're adorable cartoons! You can get a Harriett mug or tote bag or hoodie or clock or all kinds of merch! Winning is fun but being immortalized in cartoon form is an honor I dreamed not of.
(btw, Serial Killers will be back before you know it; the new season starts October 14th)
I guess consumers' viewing habits have changed and now no one wants to watch webseries or tv shows or whatever and if you're not doing ASMR videos then you god damn better be doing "unboxing" and "haul" videos where you buy stuff and then show everybody what you got for some reason because capitalism is where it was eventually gonna go I guess?
Dump That Dick (episode 7) and Jane Austen's Emma Frankenstein (episode 5) both advanced to the Sexy Six in the Serial Killers Playoffs! It's part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, tickets here!
Dump that Dick (written by Vanessa and French Stewart, directed by Julia Griswold) has everything. Dancing:
A boy band:
And though not really its trademark, there's some dancing in Jenelle Riley's Jane Austen's Emma Frankenstein too, if that's a deciding factor or anything:
These are for sure my friends and I deciding where to go on a road trip, and here are photos of us just hanging out together. They are NOT stills from the set of a commercial where we pretended to be friends, but if they were, you could probably see this spot while watching a Dodgers game cause I hear it's playing a lot during those.
Did you have a relaxing holiday break, or did you do several holiday-themed shows and spend all that downtime writing, rehearsing, memorizing, and panicking? You did shows?? ME TOO!
There was that Sunday in December where I shunned and shamed Pasadena into repentance, reprising my role as the Angel in the annual Krampus Play at the Church of Angels.
Then the following weekend we brought the March sisters back to Sacred Fools in "Big Men Little Women: A Holiday Special (Not a Porno)" and man, I hope this becomes an annual tradition.
Finally, Heather Schmidt and I rang in the new year by again co-hosting Fast & Loose, an overnight theatre extravaganza (8 playwrights get variables at 8p the preceding night, directors draw scripts/actors out of a hat, the show goes up that night), topped off by a dance party and champagne toast.
She was really eager to hear my feedback so I have high hopes about her performance this year. #goals
Just finished a horror short written and directed by Jake Miller, also starring Heather Schmidt. Can't say much about it yet, but prepare to be spooooked!
Night Witches had a sold out opening night and has been holding its own in a sea of like 300 fringe shows. We've somehow been pulling off Serial Killers too, though our next one is at 11am on Saturday. UNCHARTED SERIAL KILLERS TERRITORY HERE.
"Julia Griswold is the standout of the ensemble, bringing a nerdy and understated brand of bravery to the reluctant but smart aviator she plays." -Amy Lyons, Stage Raw
I'm an actor, and I write stuff too. I do comedy. I'm short. I perform in a sketch comedy show called Serial Killers (just about) every Saturday.
