Peruse my work.

Colleen Smith

Welcome to my resume. All the stuff I did is below. The TV stuff is pretty easy to understand so I'll take this moment to brag about other stuff. I am a Groundlings Sunday Company and Second City alum.  I am the co-director and star of "Teen Witch the Musical!", a staged version of the 80's cult classic that was mentioned in Entertainment Weekly and Jezebel.com and performed to sold out crowds in LA and San Francisco. I am also one half of “The Smith Brown Project”, a two woman show which ran at The Comedy Central Stage, UCB and The Groundlings. And most recently I wrote, directed and starred in "The Naut" a Post Apocalyptic Grindhouse parody. And it's pre-quel "The Molemen" The trailer is on my video page.

Oh and I work for the Jim Henson Co. as a puppeteer/improvisor in "Puppet Up!" We've been to San Francisco, Chicago, New York (We were nominated for a Drama Desk Award) the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Australia for a three city tour. Here are some gross quote that makes me look awesome.

"Colleen Smith stands out in this wonderful ensemble as a relatively undiscovered comic genius, infusing each sketch with sidesplitting humor. Every time she takes the stage to “Puppet Up,” you find yourself excited to see what she’ll come with next." - Chicago Stage Review

 

 "And along with a formidably brilliant comedian and improviser named Colleen Smith, Tuesday night's show offered the chance to see Henson work the puppets" - Chris Jones - Chicago Tribune

The less No, You Shut Up! sticks to its rigid structure, the more it serves as an astute complement to what Obama is saying. I’m not sure if Stephen Colbert was feeding lines to Star Schlesinger, the conservative squirrel, but she channels his brilliance in balancing iconoclasm with coded jabs at the GOP. When the president gets a standing ovation for mentioning his commitment to natural gas, without missing a beat, she says, “How’s he supposed to get to that gas without using fracking, which I thought you liberals didn’t like?” It’s followed almost immediately by applauding Obama for promising a college education to students who will, according to Schlesinger, just get a communications degree they’ll never use. - The A.V. Club
