News and things

Happy New Year 

It's 2015 and what that means is more comedy, more drama more life in the arts. In the meantime you can see season 1 of Kate's first network show "Dance Your Ass Off" playing on Oxygen TV this month in reruns (it is the #2 show in China and is being made in 30 countries around the world) as well as her first kid's adventure show "Cache Craze" On YTV in Canada. More good stuff is coming soon on comedy stages and small screens everywhere... the joke elves are working hard to cook up the jokes. Possibly in dutch ovens.
