2015 Updates!

HI!

I can’t believe it’s almost February already! It couldn’t come sooner because I swore off drinking for the month of January. It’s been a nice change, but I’ve really been craving a glass of red wine!

Speaking of red wine, I started a food blog! It’s called “Eating With Julia” and it’s on Tumblr. I’ve always had a passion for cooking and eating and I decided to turn my my culinary creations into a fun little blog. Check it out!

January has been super busy with shows and this weekend I’ll finish off my final weekend of the “Cold Dark January” tour. CDJ is a tour where comedians get to tell their darkest and dirtiest jokes. I’m on the “Dirty Chixxx” shows (didn’t choose the name…) with Rebecca Kohler and Michelle Shaughnessy. So far we’ve played Ajax Yuk Yuks, Ottawa Yuk Yuks and our final shows are this weekend at Mississauga Yuk Yuks. It’s a damn blizzard out right now so hopefully people show up!

February is a very exciting month (besides the fact that I can drink again…) because I’m doing the LOL Sudbury Comedy Fest! I’ve heard nothing but great things about this festival and I can’t wait to be a part of it. My show is Friday, Feb 6.

I’ll also be co-headlining Yuk Yuks Ottawa with Matt O’Brien for 5 shows over Valentine’s Day weekend. AWWWW CUTE.

Otherwise, just a bunch of shows that you can find on my “Shows” page. Check it out!

Also, Don’t forget to download my sweet ass podcast called “WE’RE DOING IT” that I host with comedian and ding ding, Amanda Brooke Perrin.

I’M BACK

OH HI!

Bet you didn’t even know I was gone! I did a little East Coast Comedy Tour to Halifax and St. John’s with fellow comedian, Andrew Johnson. I celebrated my birthday while getting to co-headline the Halifax Yuk Yuks so that was quite a lovely experience! Luckily I have a bunch of friends out in Halifax who write for “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” and they showed me a good time. (I drank 2 pitchers of long island iced tea to myself and that’s just the tip of the ice berg.)

Luckily the weather was on our side, considering Ontario just got the shit end of the stick. I had never been to Newfoundland before and I’m so happy I got to experience it. The people there couldn’t be nicer. I’ve never met so many local comics who are willing to do whatever they can to accommodate you. The shows were a blast, and again, we partied a little harder than we should have the last day. Seeing as our flight was at 5:45AM we decided to stay up all night, and I stand by that decision. George Street is a hot mess that everyone should see. These east coast tours aren’t huge money making ventures, but they are quite the adventure. Andrew and I met a stripper at the airport in St John’s who said she made TWELVE THOUSAND DOLLARS working at The Cotton Club. (I don’t know what that name grosses me out so much?) Anyway, maybe if I work on my dance moves I’ll consider a change of profession…

It’s so good to be back in Toronto. I’ve made some changes to my website, so have a look! I got new head shots, a new demo reel annnd I updated my show info. (I KNOW! So impressive.) Also, after years and years of being a non-union actor I finally took the plunge after booking an Advil commercial, and became an Actra apprentice. Hopefully I made the right decision!

Holiday buzz is in the air (yes I’m super cheesy and totally fall for all this hallmark holiday bullshit) and I am so excited to finish off 2014 with a bang. I’m going to Vegas soon, so I’m pretty sure that’s just the bang I’m looking for. (No I will not be seeking male prostitutes in Vegas…;)

More to come! See you at shows:)

COMEDY COUP: WICKED SOCIAL

OH HI!

I’ve been so busy CREATING A SITCOM that I haven’t had time to update my website! I’m sure you’ve heard about it already, but in case you haven’t COMEDY COUP is searching for the next great Canadian sitcom. The “winner” would get there show on CBC primetime and FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS. I am the creator and writer of a show called Wicked Social.

“Wicked Social Promotions is lead by Sandy Williams, a no nonsense bulldozer of a woman who was a pioneer of the promotions industry and is now grooming her son for the Job. She employs a group of colourful characters including dancers, actors, writers, weirdos, and mac daddy’s. Each week the Wicked Social team goes on different promotions assignments while their careers and dreams take a major back seat. They are faced with jobs they never knew existed and the obstacles they must overcome are bigger than the regular 9-5 worker could ever imagine. Romances spark and fizzle, while jealousy runs rampant. When 7 beautiful people with opposite personalities collide, Sandy and her painfully annoying son are the ones to keep them in line. An inside look on what it’s really like to be a struggling Canadian performer and to be in the prestigious yet soul sucking ‘beautiful people’ life style. Promotions are not for everyone. Neither is showbiz. If you can’t take the sass, get out of promotions.”

The show is “Party Down” meets “Friends” (I know…as if I just compared my show to friends) and is based on my experiences of working in promotions.

My CBC Comedy Coup team is made up of Diana Love and Christophe Davidson.

THANK YOU INTERNET.

LOVE JULIA.

 

JUST FOR LE FUN!

Hello world!

The Just For Laughs festival is happening in Montreal and I’m going to check it out! My man lover, Matt O’Brien, is doing a gala at Club Soda so I thought I’d come along for the ride. I’ve never been to the festival before and I’m so pumped to spend a week in Montreal with some of the greatest comedians in the world!

In other news, I finished my screenplay! This is my 1st attempt at a feature script, and I’m really happy with it. After letting many people read it and editing it 400 times, I had the balls to submit it to the Final Draft Screenwriting Contest.

I also started writing for CBC Punchline, so if you ever need a quick laugh check it out! Tons of funny little articles by some really great writers and comedians.

After Montreal I’ll be performing at Yuk Yuks Ottawa July 31st-August 2nd and Niagara Falls Yuk Yuks August 14-16.

Follow me on twitter @juliacomedy for other updates!

Hugs,

Julia

I’m Doing It!

HIIII!

The past week has been super busy and I just wanted to take a moment to say how #blessed I feel. I’ve been sick for almost 2 weeks now, but even that couldn’t get me down. Well, it did get me down for a while but then I had no choice but to power through! The sun is finally here and I think that it what’s giving me so much joy. I had a hectic weekend, and now that it’s over I want all my weekends to be just like that. Friday I had 4 auditions, Saturday I had a gig in Port Rowan with super funny amazing comics Jeff McEnery and Adam Christie, Sunday I rehearsed a play in the park and then I went and hosted Sunday Night Live. AH! I felt so creatively fulfilled and it reminded me how lucky I am to be pursuing my dream job.

Some really exciting shows are coming up this summer too! As I mentioned, I’m rehearsing for a play. It’s called “I’m Dyin’ Bud”, written by Bryn Pottie and Donny Kehoe. The short comedic play follows the struggles of one dysfunctional North Bay family. It will be playing at The Box Theatre June 29 and 30th. Stay tuned for more details!

June 2nd I’ll be performing at The Rivoli for the Toronto round of “SiriusXM Canada’s Top Comic” for a chance to win 15 grand! Come on down and laugh real hard!

June 5th I’ll be in Niagara Falls showcasing at COCA!

June 18 I’ll be performing at NXNE!

What a fun month! Now go outside and get a patio beer. You earned it!

Hugs,

Julia
