- Hi, all.
I'm a member of this group and also work as an actor and writer. I
emailed Gene and John a copy of my bio from a play I'm acting in as
part of the Philly Fringe festival. John offered to post it here, as
it mentions Cartoon Corners and Gene. I wasn't going to, as I thought
it would look like a plug for the show (and hey, just click on the
link or paste it into your browser for dates and showtimes!)but what
the heck, here it is! If you don't want to read the whole big ball of
egotism, just skip to the end, where the reference to GL is.
John, Gene -
I just wanted to send you a copy of my program bio for a play I'm
acting in as part of the Philly Fringe festival -
I really wanted to mention my connection to Cartoon Corners, as it
was so formative for my development as an artist. If you don't feel
like reading the whole thing, the Gene London reference is near the
STEVE LIPPE (Larry) Steve is delighted to debut with Danger Goddess,
and thrilled to be working with Rowen Haigh again. Also for the
Fringe, Steve will write a short play on Friday, Sept. 12th, that
will be performed the next day as part of "Guaranteed Overnight
Theatre". Steve just ended an incredible 6-year run with those mad
masters of sketch comedy, The Waitstaff, where he served as
writer/performer/producer. Previously, Steve was in "Sordid Lives"
at Allen's Lane
Theatre. Previous Fringe appearances include Cardboard Box
Collaborative's "pu ber ty ",
and the 2006 sleeper Fringe hit, "darKomedy", that Steve wrote,
directed and performed in . Additional theatre credits include
Theatre Exile and Vagabond, plus staged readings with Philadelphia
Dramatists Center, and the late, lamented Brick Playhouse. Film
appearances include Woody Allen's "Celebrity", Disney's
the always running cable-TV favorite, "Mannequin". TV credits
include "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", "The Chris Rock
an appearance with his brother and sister on "Cartoon Corners" with
Gene London! As far as he can tell, Steve is the only actor EVER to
play Charlie Chaplin on the radio, on WXPN's "Kid's Korner".
Tulip, Cassidy, where are you now?
