*I’m a stand-up comedienne, writer, filmmaker and vintage addict. * Ever since I was a little girl, I've wanted to be a Grandma. *I believe in magic. *The film "Play Time" by Jacques Tati blew my mind. *I love when art gives me goosebumps. *Miranda July inspires me along with Andy Kaufman, Spalding Gray,  Elsa Von Freytag Loringhoven, Banksy, David Elsewhere and more. *Highbrow and lowbrow, I appreciate it all. *Lists like this are utterly cliché. *I'm overly self-conscious about writing lists. *I like to write about writing lists in a list format. *Sometimes I'm too meta for my own good.
