Who's the Boss? is the boss. But in this case, "the boss" is an adjective, similar to noun-turned-adjectives such as "my jam" or "top drawer". Yes, Comediva is the boss. So I am thrilled they wanted dub me a "Boss Lady". Read my interview here. They asked good questions. Not surprising, considering they're the boss.

A No-Wrap Christmas Gift!

Conveniently, the Mexican flag colors are the same as the Christmas colors. This means you save on wrapping when you buy a DVD copy of El Súperstar: The Unlikely Rise of Juan Frances for your best friend this holiday season! There's even a baby Jesus in the film. Actually, there are a few.

Blog on Blog Action 4

Women in Hollywood asked if I would do a guest post about the UCLA Festival of New Work. I did.

Hold For Laughs gets a shout out from a total stranger! As in, not written by my aunt, or an ex-boyfriend looking to get back in my good graces. Just a random fan! Awesome. See it here.

Oh, what a night!

The DGA showcase was a truly magical night. It was the first time I'd seen most of the final versions of the other ladies' shorts, and every single one of them turned out unbelievably well. Forgive me this brief moment of horn-tooting to say that, as a group, WE NAILED IT!

I am also thrilled to report that the audience seemed to really enjoy my film---laughing in all of the right places, being quiet in the tragic bits, and best of all, freaking out about how amazing Sarah was in the leading role.

Here is a photo of me with my cast. I love them. I love the DWW. I love AFI. Dreams-coming-true material, all around.

Realeasing my Hold (For Laughs)

My latest directing effort is about to hit the big screen! Hold for Laughs, a short film, will be screening on May 9th at the beautiful 600 seat DGA Theater, as part of the AFI Directing Workshop for Women Showcase. This movie is the culmination of all of the learning I've done over my year at AFI. It's like a 15 minute long year book page that I'm asking you to sign, except using your laughter and tears instead of a Sharpie.

Miss French

I hope there is a big old fashioned chalkboard at the Vidiots Annex, so that on Sunday evening, when I teach my Improv Filmmaking Workshop, I can start by writing "Miss French" on the board in big block letters, with a heart and a star on either end.

To learn more about this fun event, and to sign up, click here. If you do attend, I promise to call on you when you raise your hand, to grade you on a bell curve, and insist that you kindly spit out your gum.

I've been spending a lot of time in the airport lately.
