I was on Dan Rea’s Nightside conservative talk radio show on 4/23. It was an interesting experience. Not sure I would do it quite the same as too many callers thought they were talking to the REAL Hillary and kinda missed the ‘comedy’ part.

My Latest Creation…
My Latest Creation…
I’m very behind aren’t I in updating this page! Oh well, here’s a little something that came in. Cool company that deals with foodies! Watch ViMax Video with VO by RW here
Quoted in the Washington Times…Check out the last line.
“So what exactly do you DO all day?” Well, Chet…in addition to helping my little son with his school projects and volunteering when and where I can, I have been doing lots of voice overs and have been getting back into singing after a somewhat long hiatus. Oh, and I’ve cut and colored my hair but don’t have the pictures yet to prove it!! Not sure what color it will be by the end of the month so stay tuned. Here are some things I’ve been working on in February. Corporate in-house videos (Johnson & Johnson, GlobalPharma Business and another SD biotech company who has me sworn to secrecy) Web videos (Carvana.com and Jumio.com seen here) Local tv ads (Pacific Honda…that one might be playing now in San Diego. I play old lady Wilkerson. And my first ads for the state of Alaska!! Did some spots for Dr. Kim Wright, a spine surgeon.) Phone systems (for a national client for whom I am under an NDA. See! I can keep my mouth shut!! I’ll tell you later.) In-store ads (Next time you are in Rite Aid, listen for the Brita ads) AND… my one catalog print job so far this month for Road Runner Sports. This was an easy shoot with Kinely Bennett Creative. Ironically, the night before I was to don running attire I decided to demonstrate for my child what a round-off cartwheel looked like. Now, the thing you should know is that I had not done a round-off cartwheel in about, oh, 27 years. Suffice it to say I won’t be doing one again anytime soon. Fortunately, we were not asked to run at full speed during the shoot for standing up straight was actually a bit of a challenge! Word to the wise, practice gymnastics AFTER the photo shoot. Thanks to Frank and Carol at Shamon-Freitas Talent Agency here in super San Diego for connecting me with so many great people.
I’ve been doing some TV spots like this one for Complete Body Fitness.

The Good News Network Indeed, one of the stipulations by Carol in accepting the award last night was that the lineup include an upcoming comedienne, Rosemary Watson, who recently wrote a fan letter to Carol, and won her praise after the star saw her excellent impressions of Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer. Read the full article here.

Washington Post As for Burnett, she continued to play that mentor role. She requested that the little-known comedian Rosemary Watson perform at the show after Watson wrote a letter to her only a few weeks ago. Watson called Burnett “her fairy godmother,” saying she was speechless at the invitation to perform her uncanny Hillary Rodham Clinton impersonation for the Twain audience. Read the full article here.

September 4, 2013 LOOK WHAT HAPPENED!!!
A lineup of top entertainers including, Julie Andrews, Lucie Arnaz, Tony Bennett, Tim Conway, Tina Fey, Rashida Jones, Vicki Lawrence, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short, Rosemary Watson and others will salute Carol Burnett at the 16th Annual Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. The evening will pay tribute the humor and accomplishments of Carol Burnett, and will be taped by WETA Washington, D.C. as Carol Burnett: The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize. The program will air on PBS stations nationwide November 24, 2013 (check local listings). Artists are subject to change. The 16th Annual Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize, sponsored by Capital One Bank, focuses on the achievements of American comedic artists. The proceeds from the evening’s event are used to support the Kennedy Center’s programs, performances, and outreach. As recipient of the 2013 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, Ms. Burnett will receive a copy of an 1884 bronze portrait bust of Mark Twain sculpted by Karl Gerhardt (1853-1940). The bust and images of it are courtesy of the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, Connecticut. Read more about PBS to Air Kennedy Center’s Carol Burnett Celebration,

Dearest Friends, It would appear that my “ship has come in!” and/or “my goose has been cooked”. I’ve never been quite clear on the distinction. I mean having a goose cooked sounds pretty good in theory…unless of course you are a vegetarian (which I am). Never mind. I’m confused and you obviously know why, or you wouldn’t be here! Carol Burnett is this year’s recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The ceremony will be held in Washington D.C. on October 20, 2013 and she has invited me to be a part of the celebration alongside some of the biggest names in show business. Am I joking? No. They are seriously some of the biggest names in show business! Am I beyond speechless, humbled, grateful, in awe, shocked, stunned? Yes. Could I in a million years have predicted that I would end up at the Kennedy Center participating in an award show for the woman I idolized with every fiber of my being as a child. Yes. I do believe if I had 999,999 years I would have guessed it in that last year. What truly makes this story so sublime are events that occurred decades ago. When Carol Burnett was in school at UCLA (my alma mater) she was given a thousand dollars from an ‘anonymous’ donor to help further her career and move to New York. She took the money under the condition that she would pay the man back in five years, if she could, (which she did to the day), that she would never reveal his name (which she hasn’t) and that she would help others get their start. I promise I will stop crying by the time October 20th rolls around. The show will air on PBS on November 24, 2013. I hope you will tune in. Love, Rosemary

This past month I was busy with the usual mixed-bag of jobs. I did a local spot for Mossy Nissan with The Kitchen Agency. It should be on the TV airwaves soon in San Diego. Guess what I played? The mom! Attendees of the Cannes film festival heard me in an animated movie that, fingers crossed, gets picked up. In that I play the nerdy, French 10 year old girl. Beautiful animation by the incredible team at Double Take Media solutions. Some other vo jobs included: Sippy Rx, Repair.com, AIG, Amberen and Youmail. I also got to revisit Sarah Palin for a company in South Africa! And lastly, venturing far off into a completely different world, I created this video for children (and parents) who are going through, or have gone through a divorce. Please share it with anyone you think it might help!

To see pictures from last week’s concert, go to the Singing Page and scroll under the tab to find the Photo Gallery. It was a fun show. I got to sing with some of San Diego’s best jazz musicians as well as my best friend, Anna, who added so much with her back up vocals. You’ll hear more on that partnership later as Anna will be singing in my new pop band that is currently forming!!

Been a little slow to update this page…my apologies. Performed this morning, along with Patrick Berrogain, at our son’s school. You know we jazzers love to keep on our toes and try to play at 8am 😉 Hopefully, we entertained and educated the fifth graders as we talked about what jazz is as well as what opportunities there are to play it. We performed a standard swing tune, a samba, a bossa nova and a blues and got the kids scatting. It was a really enjoyable morning for us both. I wonder how my life would have been different if I had been exposed to the world of jazz earlier? Although I grew up with musical opportunities, I didn’t figure out that ‘jazz singer’ was even a career option until my 30s!

The past couple of weeks I have been busy doing mostly voiceover work. I’m looking forward to seeing what my friends over at www.youtube.com/barelypolitical have done with a Hillary track I sent them! I have also enjoyed a new developing ‘relationship’ with www.StrategicMediaInc.com…I hope it’s not too soon to call it a relationship? I have voiced a few radio spots for them for Budget Blinds and Amberen. www.IdeaRocketAnimation.com and I teamed up for a project for Kimberly-Clark. Hopefully, this is just the beginning as they look like a really cool company with great ideas! My website is looking better than ever thanks to Brenna at www.TheCreativeCellar.com.
It’s been a ‘corporate parody’ kind of month! Had great fun writing and co-starring in an in-house video for The American Hotel & Lodging Association’s annual meeting in NYC. The piece I wrote was a skit to introduce the new Chairman of the Board, Ron Vlasic (Reg. VP of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.) It was a multi-city production between San Diego, San Francisco and Chicago. I wouldn’t recommend trying it at home. Ron and the Kimpton people were a delight to work for. We shot our scenes at the Palomar Hotel in SD which is a one-of-a-kind very cool boutique hotel. Check it out! Oh and hopefully, Ron won’t mind me sharing this little blurb he wrote…ahem….”I can’t thank you enough for the great job you did. You have unbelievable talent!” Yah me! And today, I finished working on an short little ditty for Taylor Made. It was a fun bit that will be used for one of their in-house events. I played a news reporter. Got to work with a crack media team, www.scratchmedia.com. Check them out as well!

Steve Sussman, my latest creation was unveiled today. I had an incredible amount of fun creating this ‘man’. He started out as a woman by the name of Marcia Moore Cross, then morphed into Ronnie Richmond, then Pierre Sanchez etc… It took me 2 weeks or about 13 days longer than I originally planned to finish taping it. Filming on one’s on can be incredibly challenging, and even depressing. Sometimes I would have a great take only to discover that the whole thing was out of focus. This happened about 15 times. (no joke) Living near a small airport and neighbors who have their yards ‘blown’ clean every day are other impediments that I had to work around (about 20 takes). Lighting, weather, sound are all other issues that come up when shooting outdoors (25 takes). Ultimately, I ended up using footage that I could live with. I have about 1 hours worth of outtakes and I hope to make a video of that soon.

I DID perform at the Music on the Mountain series and what a fun time we had. Awesome crowd and wonderful library where we performed. But wait, there’s more. Carol Burnett is clearly trying to kill me. Otherwise why else would she have said my name again last night!! on Leno. Keep an eye out on her would ya, she’s up to something? (and we’re breathing, in and out, in and out….)
