MATT SCOTT has made a lot of funny stuff. His most recent project was the seven minute short film “Once A Loser,” which he wrote & directed for the 48 Hour Film Project in NYC. And Once A Loser turned out to be…. a WINNER, garnering the honor of being voted Audience Favorite at the 48 Hour Film Project Screening. Watch it here:
MARY BIRDSONG is best known as an actress, and can be seen playing the much-coveted role of “Kai Mitchell” in Academy Award winning director Alexander Payne’s lastest film “The Descendants,” opposite George Clooney. Mary has been entertaining audiences in front of the camera on big and small screens alike (Reno 911, The Daily Show w/Jon Stewart, Adventureland, Killers), and is also no stranger to the stage.
She made her Broadway debut in 2006, and proved that her comedy chops are something to be reckoned with, holding her own next to that legendary comedic chameleon Martin Short. She wowed the crowds and the critics with her dazzling range of hilarious characters and impressons in his hit musical “Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me!” for which she won a Theatre World Award. Her most recent theatre turn was as “Mona Ramsey” in the world premiere of Tales of the City (the musical) at A.C.T. in San Francisco. The show was helmed by the writing/directing team of Jeff Whitty & Jason T. Moore (both of Avenue Q), and featured a musical score by two members of the glam-rock group “The Scissor Sisters” (Jake Shears and John Garden). The musical tells the story of all the beloved characters featured in Armisted Maupin’s novel of the same name, as well as the PBS mini-series that launched Laura Linney’s career. Birdsong has showcased her impressive range Off-Broadway, too– playing a variety of moving and hilarious characters opposite Jane Lynch in the hit show “Love, Loss and What I Wore,” (by Nora & Delia Ephron), as Judy Garland in the one-woman show “Judy Speaks,” (which Birdsong wrote), and as porn star Vixen Fox in “Adult Entertainment” (which Elaine May wrote) .
So what’s next? While Mary continues to get better and better roles in film, television and theater, the new decade has ushered in a new and exciting role for Birdsong—as producer. Stepping behind the camera (while she continues to entertain in front of it), she is currently developing a reality show with Leopard Films (“Good Vibrations”), a tv series (“The Spirit Seeker”) and an indie rock movie musical (“99 Cent Whore”) which is based on her original character of the same name, and features original songs by Birdsong.
And she’s just getting started. So watch out for her fastball, because the rumors are true– she DOES throw like a girl. And once you get hit? You’ll want to get hit all over again. And again. And again… And again…
