“…because I never belonged to anything or anyone else.” – Marilyn Monroe
The past few months have been incredible! I have been exploring the world of celebrity impersonators in a whole new way. I’ve gotten to know lots of new friends and Marilyn enthusiasts, what a wonderful community of people! I was fortunate to be a part of the 50th anniversary of her passing in Hollywood, and I loved meeting everyone there!
It is nothing short of amazing how prevalent Marilyn remains, 50 years after her candle blew out. In just 36 years of life, she secured a spot in every home – be it on a coffee mug, a calendar or a canvas – and is thought of every single day. Her smile still graces the covers of magazines and books, not to mention pop culture t-shirts, wine bottles… Many are wondering who among us will be so lovingly remembered in 50 years, if anyone… And how would Marilyn have felt to know it would be this way? I’m sure we will never really know.
Of course, I’ve been working so much as Marilyn that I have had to squeeze in stand-up comedy whenever I can between rehearsals, auditions and gigs!
A few of you have asked when my upcoming comedy shows are, and though Marilyn may be center stage this month, you CAN come see me do my stand-up comedy:
* “Hot Girls Telling Dirty Jokes” Show at Liam’s Irish Pub in Colton, CA – Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 at 9:30pm. FREE show! Great Irish pub food!
* The Performing Arts Gallery in Tustin, CA – Friday, September 14th, 2012 at 8pm, I think it will be $5 or $10, but check back before the show, I will update and clarify!
* I will also be performing as Marilyn at Universal CityWalk in Universal City, CA on THURSDAY, AUGUST 30TH at 7pm! Also FREE.
It will be an amazing show, and I’ll be singing and dancing along with Elvis, Beyonce, former President Clinton, you name it! It’s part of a live global broadcast for ICN Network’s hit show “The Return of Superstars”, and I’m very excited to be a part of it!! Please do come out and watch our show! If you can’t make it, I do believe you can also view it after September 30th on ICN’s website as well.
I will continue to update my blog here as shows come up, so please check back often!
And, as always, if you’d like ME-rilyn to come to a party or be in a show, email me! The same goes for anyone who would like me to be in a comedy show or film/tv project – I love to work!!!
Thank you so much for your time and support! Until next time, work hard and dream harder!
(And to my new friend in Topanga/Canoga Park, I will be sending you positive thoughts during your surgery!)
