THE RAINBOW REVUE
comic intro I
|Sandy Lawson||David Pavao||Zina Camblin|
Comedian and performance artist Sandy Lawson holds an undergraduate theater degree from Eastern Michigan University. She is not out to her parents. (They think she has an MBA.) She is currently finishing her thesis in Performance Studies, also from Eastern.
For the past several years, Ms. Lawson has played her one-woman-show "Shame on Me," directed by Britta Hudson, all over Southeast Michigan. The show, a satire on everything from religion to sexual politics, features 15 original characters and a pretty nasty final encounter with a jar of Smuckerís grape jelly. (Eat your heart out Karen Finley!)
Sandy Lawson has appeared at "The Planet Ant" in Detroit, "The 2nd Annual Womanís Art and Film Blowout Extravaganza" in Ypsilanti, MI, and The Ann Arbor Museum of Art, as well as a host of other theaters, clubs, conferences and coffeehouses.
She was "raised up" in Roseville, Michigan, by a pack of wild bunnies. Her goal in life is to make people laugh really hard.
Weíre already laughing with you Sandy. Thanks for coming to play with us under the rainbow at THE RAINBOW REVUE.
David Pavao was born and raised in the culturally challenged city of San Bernardino. With a BA in Theatre Arts from California State University, David drove the fifty miles from San Bernadino to Los Angeles to pursue his career.
Davidís dream of becoming "the unknown actor" has eluded him. He keeps getting awards, acting and standup gigs . . . go figure. David has been seen in some great unknown and unseen plays. "Bad Habits," "The Marriage of Bette & Boo," "Bus Stop," "Stray Dog Story," just to un-name a few.
David was presented with an Inland Theatre League Award for best actor in "A Flea In Her Ear." So much for anonymity, eh David? Mr. Pavao began performing stand-up comedy about five years ago. He has won several local stand-up comedy competitions and performed in many of the well know comedy clubs here in LA. One of his favorite gigs was performing with Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) and Kathleen Madigan at a Project Angel Food benefit.
THE RAINBOW REVUE is pleased that David has agreed to join the company. We apologize to David for having to put his dream of being "unknown" on hold. Because, baby it wonít happen here!
Now please standby while Zina materializes in this dimension. Thank you and sorry for the inter-dimensional delay here in THE RAINBOW REVUE control room.
