What People Are Saying About Blog Out Loud 

I, like many others, found the stand-up backstage commentary and insights to be hilarious and quite revealing.

I found myself engaged in your writing style and the way in which the words resonated from the performances.


I loved the reading! It was hilarious and captivating, and it added a layer to hearing your work out loud 
that simply doing a one woman show might not have done.
