Well, it was a lovely surprise to wake up and get an email informing me I've been nominated for several Acme Awards.
The Acme Comedy Theater is a great little sketch and improv spot in town. A couple years back, I realized I probably needed to figure out how to do improv if I was going to last long out here. To any aspiring actors thinking about making The Great LA Move - in NYC, you need to be able to tap dance and sing. Here, it's do standup and improv.
I had a fantastic four year run with the theater before deciding to hang up my funny shoes and see if my brain was capable of memorizing lines anymore.
The Acme was my family and home and I am so very proud of so many of the things I did with them. I'll be off performing A Christmas Carol during the awards ceremony, so hopefully someone will let me know if I won, but truly, it is an honor to be nominated.

So, now it is your turn, dear readers and commenters looking for something to write about... The premise of Hollywood Dream Role was that we would ask a star what their "dream role" was - the one they had never gotten a chance to do, but always wanted to play. We would then improvise a 45 minute long show with them starring in that role. For example, Alison Haislip said she always wanted to be a superhero. Patrick Muldoon always wanted to play Danny Zuko in Grease. Walt Willey always wanted to be in Jaws. Candis Cayne always wanted to play Mommy Dearest.
So how about you? If you could play any role in any movie, what would it be? And why?
