Happy Holidays!

I hope your Thanksgiving was FiLLiNG and stuffed – with love!

This is a photo of me making my newly-traditional hand turkey at an “Orphans’ Thansgiving” celebration with those of us in entertainment who have moved to Hollywood – and therefore far away from family! Dear friends of mine arrange this sweet get-together every year and it’s SO MUCH FUN!

Christmas has been an on-going event already! First I soaked up the cheer and lights of a Disneyland Christmas, then I gaped at the amazing teamwork and spirit in Paso Robles (my alma mater) for their annual Vine Street party! Every house and business on Vine Street is Victorian-style, and they ALL decorate and celebrate each year! There is even a veteran performer who has played Ebeneezer Scrooge annually without fail since I was a LiTTLE brat! He actually moved away fro Vine Street at one point, and families begged him to come back and perform at THEiR house!
Most of my immediate family was in tow for this one, and several of my long-time and truest friends – it was truly heart-warming on such a freezing night!

I sincerely hope that your holidays are bright and festive, and even though gifts may be running thin in many American homes this Christmas, may the spirit of family and the love of friendship carry you through on a wave of happiness and joy.

If you are hoping to brave the cold (for Southern California) weather for some AMAZiNG comedy this month, do I have the show for you!

The Beauty Bar – 1638 N Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, CA (near Hollywood Blvd)
Thursday, December 22nd at 8pm

This show is an honor for me to be a part of, as it’s got a line-up of incredibly funny and personally KiND comedians! It’s FREE, and the street parking should be close to free with meters lining a few of the streets! It’s 21 and over only, but there’s NO drink minimum, and guess what?? You can even get a manicure while you watch for ten bucks!!
(For more info please go to )

I hope to see you there, and STAY WARM, friends!!
