In what is being called one of the best Hollywood ‘pay-it-forward’ stories, Rosemary wrote to her idol Carol Burnett in the summer of 2012. A week later, the comedy legend called Rosemary and offered to help further her career. (To read more about that phone call, click here.) A few months later Ms. Burnett went on to tout Rosemary on “CBS, This Morning!” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” as one of her favorite ‘new comediennes’.
A year later, Carol requested that Rosemary perform at the 16th Annual Mark Twain Prize for Humor held before an audience of 2400 at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC. This marked Rosemary’s first time performing her impressions before a live audience. The telecast on November 24th (PBS) marked her national comedy debut.
Rosemary has performed on stage in both comedic and dramatic roles and has appeared as a guest and host on HGTV and The Discovery Channel. She holds a BA in Psychology from UCLA and pursued graduate work in Ethics and Policy at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas until realizing there were neither ethics nor policy occurring in Las Vegas. She currently resides in the San Diego area with her young son, Dexter. She is a student of spirituality and consciousness, loves the outdoors and is passionate about supporting efforts which serve and honor our planet as well as the diversity that makes up this wonderful life.

And, ‘no’, I still don’t have representation! And ‘yes’, I’m still looking to make a variety show of my own.
