Random Actress Memory

"I do like attention, and once I get the itch, I can’t help but scratch it."

A celebrated comedian and actor joins us in the studio to record the sixth chapter of her no-doubt soon to be bestselling memoir, recounting her childhood and the journey to her inevitable stardom. We learn all about her embarrassing school days, her years in the wilderness of trying to become an actor and finally how she got her big break. Secrets are unearthed, and we discover that if you want to get up the ladder of success, sometimes you have to make your own rungs.

A witty and sharp comedy, this monologue may make you look at people on TV and Radio in a new light, and show that charm might be a smokescreen to something more sinister. Click below to download now:
