Remember the 90s? Back in the days before the internet became the world’s ultimate porn machine? Back in the day, our ancestors had to actually pick up the phone and pay $5.99/minute (other fees may apply) if they wanted to indulge in their ultimate sex fantasy with a stranger.

May I present the latest installment of “The Lady Series” starring myself and famous actress Kirstin Eggers as two of the most magical phone sex line scam artists in the business. TA DAAAAAAAAAAA!:

How Dry Are You?

I’m pleased to announce that “The Body Hour” is no longer a stage sketch. It’s a real live YouTube video! Kirstin Eggers and I wrote this one at The Groundlings and she happens to know a fabulous director (Andy Viner) and cinematographer (Chuck DeRosa) that made it look friggin’ amazing! Special thanks to our model Jodi (Kate Reinders). And yes, we’re all still trying to wipe off this 99 Cents Only store lotion six weeks after shooting.

But wait! There’s more! Well, not yet, but there are a whole bunch of videos in various stages of production that I’m pretty psyched to be a part of coming down the pipe. Subscribe to Horseshoe Comedy on YouTube now to stay updated on our latest releases and check out “The Body Hour” below:

I wrote and performed this in my Advanced show at the amazing Groundlings Theater in October 2012. It features the awesome Jennifer Winters and Andrew Delman on voiceover. If you’re a Howard Stern Show fan, you may recognize the hottie in the final slide as Benjy Bronk’s “Online Sweetheart” Elisa Jordana.

Liz Brown’s Comedy Reel

Is it a “comedy reel”? Or are you supposed to call it an “acting reel”? But there’s writing in there too. I don’t get it.

Anyway, here it is!

cookin' with gas cast 2

No biggie. Just a picture of me and a handful of the greatest improvisers in the entire world. I don’t know why I’m holding my hand like that. I think I was instinctually doing the overwhelmed hand-to-chest-OMG-I’m-so-honored-to-be-here type thing, but it looks like I’m showing off an engagement ring on the wrong hand.

From left to right: Michaela Watkins, Michael McDonald, Mitch Silpa, T.J. Miller, Liz Brown, Edi Patterson and Jeremy Rowley.

Never thought I’d end up in a picture like this in my wildest dreams. OK fine, in my WILDEST dreams but those were like–WILD. Hope my creepy dream about meeting the ghost of Conrad Bain come true next!

The best gas I’ll ever have

cookin' with gas

This is seriously insane. I’ll be in the “Cookin’ With Gas” show at the Groundlings Theater this Thursday night, January 31, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. with a handful of the best improvisers in the world:

Charlotte Newhouse, Edi Patterson, Jeremy Rowley, Mitch Silpa and Michaela Watkins, with special guest T.J. Miller. Directed by Annie Sertich!

LA Weekly: “The Liz Brown Show exists.”

In Groundlings Theater, LA Weekly articles on January 5, 2013 at 8:02 pm

In a fortuitous mistake (for me), the LA Weekly mistakenly billed me as one of the “stars” of the Groundlings New Year’s Eve spectacular. Even better? They referred to me as “Liz Brown of The Liz Brown Show”. Even better than that? They put a picture of some seriously intense magicians in the next story, and the way it’s set up, it looks to me like they’re referring to me and Matt Cook. Thanks LA Weekly!

Sunday. FUN day.

In Groundlings Theater, Performances on November 1, 2012 at 4:31 pm

I’m totally trippin’ man. This weekend is my first show as part of the new Groundlings Sunday Company.

Five years ago I was a violently depressed social worker. I could have kept going on that track for the rest of my life, but I somehow narrowly escaped a fate worse than death and am now part of the Groundlings Sunday Company? QUUUEEEE????

I’m sure everyone who gets cast in Sunday Co. is super grateful. For me, though, in addition to the awesomeness of getting to perform with really talented people on an amazing stage, I feel like this signifies the official, total end to my life as a social worker. That part of my life really, truly is completely over now.

I mean, except for the $60,000 in grad school loans I still have to pay back.
