EDEN PNW is about the blow the roof off this spot with hilarity! Meet this year’s comedians:
Julie Goldman is an American comedian, actress, and musician. She lives in Los Angeles, California. She is Jewish and a lesbian. Logo Television Network’s The Big Gay Sketch Show alumna recently wrapped up her first season on Bravo TV’s The People’s Couch and is touring this summer. Her first stand-up performance was at The Comedy Connection in Boston, Massachusetts, at the age of 15. She attended Lexington High School and Emerson College in Boston. Julie is a frequent guest on Jonny McGovern’s weekly podcast Gay Pimpin’ with Jonny McGovern. In 2010, Julie joined the cast of the podcast.
D’Lo is a queer Tamil Sri L.A.nkan-American, political theatre artist/writer, director, comedian and music producer. D’Lo has performed and/or facilitated performance and writing workshops extensively (US, Canada, UK, Germany, Sri Lanka and India). D’Lo is also the creator of the “Coming Out, Coming Home” writing workshop series which have taken place with South Asian and/or Immigrant Queer Organizations nationally (Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco).
D’Lo’s work has been published in various anthologies and academic journals, most recently: Desi Rap: Hip Hop and South Asian America and Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic: Art, Activism, Academia, and the Austin Project (Louann Atkins Temple Women & Culture Series) (co-edited by Sharon Bridgforth). D’Lo holds a BA from the University California, Los Angeles in Ethnomusicology and is a graduate of New York’s School of Audio Engineering (SAE).
Aside from touring the university/college circuit with D’FaQTo Life (pr. defacto), D’Lo tours Ramble-Ations: A One D’Lo Show (dir. Adelina Anthony), which received the NPN Creation Fund Grant inclusive of residencies in eight US cities and additional support from the Durfee Foundation Grant. Ramble-Ations has now had runs at New World Theater (Amherst), Pangea World Theater (Minneapolis), The Flea Theater as part of the National Asian American Theater Festival (New York) and Painted Bride (Philadelphia), Highways Performance Space (Los Angeles), Ashe Cultural Center (New Orleans), Brava Theater (San Francisco), Miles Playhouse (Teada/Sant Monica) and at MACLA (San Jose).
Belinda Carroll is a nationally touring stand-up comedian, writer, vocalist and actress with appearances on XM Sirius’ Get Off My Lawn!, NBC’s GRIMM, MTV, and the Oregon Lottery’s Winter Scratch-it’s commercial. She caught the comedy bug circa 1986 when in 3rd grade she was asked to play not only Aunt Sally in the school comedic masterpiece Tom Sawyer, but was also asked to sing the national anthem, in front of the entire school, in a gray-haired wig, floral mu-mu dress, and Mom’s orthopedic stockings. With her pride firmly in the gutter, her road had begun.
Belinda sang Blues, R&B and Soul most of her life in various bands, and migrated naturally to comedy in 2002 with the sketch comedy troupe “The Tragedies.” Moving to Austin, Texas in 2005, she branched into improvisational comedy, began stand-up comedy and discovered an art form that allows her to express all of the different parts of her performing background, and seek vengeance on students that mercilessly teased her throughout school. She will not rest until justice is done.
This is Belinda’s second year performing at EDEN PNW.
