Let us weave authentic stories and humor to build positive brand awareness.
On February 27, 2020, performers and friends came together for Make America Laugh and Sing Again, a sold-out "wildly entertaining" evening of hilarity and song to benefit CommonCause.org at Pangea, the East Village Alt-Cabaret Supper Club.
A big thank you to the performers who donated their time and talent to make it such a great show: the hilarious Stan Baker, the charming chanteuse Mariah Bonner, legendary musician/songwriter/writer Michael Lydon, uber-talented composer and pianist Ellen Mandel. I had the pleasure of producing, performing and emceeing.
Thank you Jon Waldman for the excellent stills and video of the show. Thank you Todd Stuart Phillips for editing the video and titles.
Join us to keep MAKE AMERICA LAUGHING AND SINGING! Now it's needed more than ever!
As I walked home from rehearsal one night in the East Village, I was arrested for putting up a small poster to promote the upcoming run of my popular parody self-help lecture, 7 1/2 Habits of Highly Effective Mistresses, the musical. This "wildly entertaining" comic monologue was the result.
Thank you Jon Waldman for the great video and Todd Stuart Phillips for editing.
I've had the pleasure of mentoring the gifted Mariah Bonner. and was delighted to put her together with composer and pianist Ellen Mandel. They collaborated on Ellen's beautiful song Le Chat, with words by Charles Baudelaire.
Ellen Mandel and I created "I Cannot Get Enough" originally for our sold-out show 7 1/2 Habits of Highly Effective Mistresses. But after I was sued for the parody by the FranklinCovey Corporation for trademark infringement of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People," we took the best material and created the new show Savvy Secrets of Successful Mistresses, the musical.
We update the song the lyrics with the latest news events. Music by Ellen Mandel, lyrics by Ellen Mandel and Lisa Faith Phillips.
