New Commercial

Hi everyone! I just booked and shot a fun commercial for a certain breakfasty company that rhymes with “Brunkin Bronuts.” It’s expected to start airing this coming summer.

In other news, I’ve recently returned from performing with The Second City aboard a cruise ship. I’m happy to be back in LA — auditioning, writing, and jumping back into long-form improv. In fact…

Tomorrow night, Monday, 17 February, I’ll be performing with my 3-person team, Panda Dreams, at the Westside Comedy Theater’s 3×3 Improv Tournament. It’s at 8pm; more info here

Panda Dreams: Josh Covitt, Rendel Leatherman and Marcy Minton: Everything you are about to see takes place in the subconscious mind of a sleeping panda.  Fast, fun and furry-ous

New Videos!

Hi, internet! I’m back from Amsterdam! I had a wonderful adventure performing with Boom Chicago and living abroad. Now I’m back in LA and working hard!

I’ve posted two new videos on my video page, as well as in this post. The first is a cute short featured on Sprinkles Cupcakes’ YouTube channel, written by and starring Mary Holland and me.

The second is a very cool short called Palooka, written by Troy Grant. It was recently a gold Remi award winner at Houston Worldfest.

Here they are:

Apologies for the lack of updates. Since May, I’ve been living in Amsterdam, Holland, as a professional cast member of the comedy theatre Boom Chicago. I perform sketch and improv nightly and will be here through spring of 2013.

National Commercial!

I booked and shot a national commercial for Samsung last month. The jury is still out on whether the commercial will actually air as shot (a.k.a. whether you’ll be able to actually see me in this commercial), but either way, it was a fun experience.
