I am a Los Angeles-based comedian and an Indie Series-nominated actor and writer. I often play tragic lady characters, and my favorite thing is shopping for early 1990s women's blazers at cluttered thrift stores. I am basically a more muscular, less successful John Early.
My TV credits include NBC's Shrink and Tello Films' Rent Controlled.
I've taught sketch comedy writing and improv for the world-famous The Second City in Chicago. I'm also a writer and facilitator for their corporate wing, Second City Works. I've performed for Second City aboard three NCL cruise lines: the Jewel, Gem and Pride of America. I was also a featured contributor to The Second City Network.
I've been performing improv since 2001. I'm a graduate of the iO Chicago and iO West in Hollywood, as well as The Second City Writing Program. I was a regular performer at the famous The Annoyance Theatre, where I wrote 4 original plays (Earthqueef, A Woman's Path, Lady Balls and my solo show John Loos' SNL Showcase). I debuted my solo sketch show Adorable Disasters there.
I have written, produced and starred in 4 original online series (The Log Jam, Sunday Funday, Sheryl Still Single and JOHN LOOS: TOO BIG FOR THIS WORLD).
Sunday Funday was featured at the Austin Short Comedy Festival and the inaugural OUT Web Fest. It is currently featured on the LGBTQ streaming service Revry!
Sheryl Still Single was featured at the L.A. Web Fest and nominated for Best Series, Best Actor, Best Writing and Best Supporting Actress.
Recently, JOHN LOOS: TOO BIG FOR THIS WORLD was nominated at the prestigious Indie Series Awards for Best Actor, Best Writing, Best Guest Actor and Best Guest Actress. It was also a selection for the 2018 Miami Web Fest, the 2018 OUT Web fest and the 2018 New York Television Festival.
In 2012, I was one of 25 finalists for the New York Television Festival FOX Comedy Script Contest for my pilot "Mr. Mayor." More than 1,200 pilots were submitted to the competition.
In 2013, the video I wrote, Help Kickstart World War III, went mega-viral, was slightly misunderstood by the conservative crowd and ultimately featured on Hannity, The O'Reilly Factor, The Daily Beast, Infowars, Russia Today, Glenn Beck's radio show, and Michael Moore's Facebook page (who else can say they got Glenn Beck and Michael Moore to support the same thing?)
When I'm not comedy-ing, I mostly play video games. My Xbox Live handle is DameJudithLight, because duh.
