I am thankful for the laughter and escape comedy brings.
I love to make people laugh by being a comedic actress on stage.
I think back to the influences on what I thought was funny growing up, and we were so fortunate to have such wonderful women comediennes to get inspiration from, particularly from the 1970's.
I was fortunate to be able to watch really good situation comedies back then. I find very little humor in American sit coms found today on network television. I have found a couple Canadian comedies I enjoy, but, to me, the network sit coms have a lot to be desired. I just don't find sexual humor and put downs that funny.
But I did enjoy these shows growing up. Some were sit coms, some were variety, and some were sit coms, but had some serious drama thrown in as well.
Enjoy a trip down memory lane with me, as I revisit my comedic roots.
