- Hysterical, fast-paced
- The CEO of the House
Laurie McDermott, Comedian, known to thousands of fans as “The CEO of the House,” is a captivating performer with a fresh face and a unique point-of-view that has fans clamoring to hear what she’s going to say next.
A mix between sweet Mary Tyler Moore and manipulative Eva Longoria on “Desperate Housewives,” Laurie has the incredible ability to perform to any audience, in any arena, large or small, innocently switching material from sweet and clean to sharp, edgy and unobviously dirty.
Touring Internationally and the US, Laurie, the Second City Graduate, appears at comedy clubs, festivals, casinos, corporate events, concert events, and when she’s not afraid to vomit or wobble on her feet, cruise ships as far away as Hong Kong and Korea on Military Tours.
Laurie has also appeared in dozens of commercials (Disney, Direct TV and Ikea) and television shows (LA Exclusive, Movies & More, Comic Relief IV and Comic Diva’s Live). Laurie even hosted a wildly spontaneous advice-call-in radio show she created for Classic Hits 97FM, titled, “For Lovers Only.”
An award-winning author and syndicated columnist, Laurie’s laugh-out-loud articles and columns appear regularly in Family, Bride and Parenting Magazines. In Los Angeles, it’s the magazines “LA family” and “The Crayon Report,” where one can always find the most current published printing of Laurie’s well-followed and well-loved, “The CEO of the House” column.
Laurie even created a new series of books, “The CEO of the House,” published after a ‘quiet’ fan approached Laurie and practically screamed, “When are you going to put your columns in a book that I can buy to read when I need a good laugh!!” Laurie immediately put the book into fruition and there are plans of publishing five more volumes as well as three children’s books that are going into production next summer. (Laurie wishes to thank this short, blonde-ambitious fan for being so bold. That’s something Laurie would do…well, not publish a book, but yell at someone else for not doing so.)
Loyal fans are also anticipating the new live action series, now in development, based on, “The CEO of the House,” that will be starring Laurie as herself.
On the horizon, watch for more books from “The CEO of the House” series, Laurie on Desperate Housewives (It’s only a matter of time), Leno and Letterman as well as the new touring shows, “The Moms Show” (aka, “Moms in Black” and “Moms on Duty”) now appearing at a club, venue or television channel near you.
Quotes Laurie lives by:
“Don’t just sit there complaining…shut-up, get up and go make it happen.”
“Don’t take things too seriously, in another 50 years you’ll be dead anyway…or just too old to care.”
“Only you can make you have a good day.”
“Only you can make you have a bad day.”
“Do what you love and money will come.”
