GottaLaff

GottaLaff lives in California. She’s a UCLA grad and takes pride in her vast experience bellowing catcalls at what passes for TV news. Her career includes teaching theatre at a performing arts high school; TV, stage, improv/stand-up; directing, writing (including for Dick Van Dyke), you name it. You might even catch her on the radio with Nicole Sandler (every week), Lizz Winstead, Shane-O, John Fugelsang, Angie Coiro, or anyone who will have her. Laffy’s posts tend to go for the lighter–okay, demented–side, suitable for pointing and laughing.
