The All Girl Revue!

Featuring Jane Morris, Ruth Rudnick, Mary Wachtel, Edie McClurg, Maureen Kelly, Dee Ryan,  Kathleen Campbell and Jill Tally, an all women improvisational comedy troupe based in Los Angeles that is composed of professional film and television actresses who are alumni of The Second City, The Annoyance Theater in Chicago and the Groundlings Theater.  THE ALL GIRL REVUE has been together for five years and performs a monthly show at the Fanatic Salon in Culver City. Most recetly they mounted a large stage show for POISE and performed in New York for POISE and the BLOGHER convention and again in Los Angeles. The show featured the All Girl Revue starring with Cloris Leachman, Sherrie Sheperd and Mo Gaffney. They have appeared at the Boston Women in Comedy Festival at Improv Boston twice and won the Friars Club Audience Award.  They’ve performed at The Los Angeles Improv Festival at the Improv Olympic, The Second City 50th Anniversary, and this spring at The Chicago Improv Festival at The Second City E.T.C., a theater that Jane Morris helped found 30 years ago. 

Each month the All Girl Revue gathers some of LA's best women writers and performers to present their solo work and music followed by the jaw droppingly funny improvisation of the All Girl Revue. The All Girl Revue takes the stage on the third Friday of every month at the fanaticSalon, 3815 Sawtelle. Blvd in Culver City. For further information about the show, please call 310 622 2046.

The Hot Flash Road Show

Sherri Sheperd
We've been really busy lately. We're pals on and off stage, so busy for us basically means laughing a lot. Besides our travels this year to the Boston Women in Comedy Festival and the Chicago Improv Festival, we went to New York this summer to work for Poise and got raves from the women at the Blogher convention where we were commissioned to entertain.  New York was hot as hell and so were we.
Mo Gaffney

We're in rehearsal now for the Hot Flash Road Show, once again for Poise, written by Mo Gaffney and starring Kathleen Campbell, Mary Wachtel, Ruth Rudnick, Mo Gaffney and Maureen Kelly, along side Cloris Leachman and Sherri Sheperd. Jane Morris is directing.

Cloris Leachman
Our regular monthly show is going to be held a week late as a result. Instead of the third Friday of the month, we're drinking playing on the last Friday of the month on Sept. 28th. This month's guests are Victoria Delaney, Carla Snowden and Christine Schoenwald.
