It is hot here in Los Angeles, I’ve been spending most of my time trying to help out my good friend who lost her husband, a beloved friend of our families. I’ve been bonding with my old neighbors and despite this atrocious heat I’m making soup and trying not to lose my sanity because Fall in LA will make you do that.

 

The glimmer of excitement and happiness I felt in my kitchen this afternoon when I saw part of the Boston cast at the rehearsal gave me a burst of joy.

Break a leg Boston cast!

Expressing Motherhood: Call For Submissions For Chicago

Submissions will be accepted soon, September 7th. Please help us spread the word.

Former ExMoShow Alum Colleen O’Neill will be the Local Producer for the Chicago show.

Born and raised in Chicago, Colleen began her career as an kid actor selling cereal toys and candy at the ripe old age of eight for $38/day. Back then she was mostly in it for the craft service and missing school.  She is a Second City Conservatory alum of both the LA and Chicago programs. In addition to writing, directing and producing, she is also one of the founding members of the sketch comedy group The McGillicuddys and producer and founder of the all-female sketch show “Slippery Handles,” which is also the name of her blog.  “Slippery Handles” came out of Colleen’s experience in searching for the funny in a not so funny battle with cancer. A self-proclaimed not-your-mama’s-mama with an affinity for swear words, Colleen counts herself blessed to be the mama of one super-smart, supremely hilarious and always patient little girl.  She also has an amazing, supportive husband who helps her to appear sane at parties.

Colleen’s current projects include work on her original,fully-improvised comedy #Actress and producing her first feature film “Blind Faith.”Her credits include TV, Film, Commercials, Print and Theater. Colleen does a bit of stand-up now and then. She is so excited to be producing this Expressing Motherhood Chicago show.
