Michelle Shy

Biography

I am a comedian, performance artist and writer because a career counselor once told me I would never be able to hang onto a straight job.

Waaaaay too many pets live with me. I have 10 cats, 4 dogs, 4 birds, 1 fish, 1 rabbit and 2 lizards. Some of these pets are already dead; they reside in Tupperware in the back closet. The remainder reside right in the middle of my bed. Tomorrow I hope to get 2 more dogs.

If you meet me in person, you will think, "Hmm...gorgeous. Nuts. And a pain in the butt."

I'm the writer of:

Snark
Humor
Poetry
Comedy
...and...Snark

Background: I've been fired from 79 jobs. The stories I've lived in these weird and wonderful jobs--machinist, actor, filmmaker, software engineer, acting coach, executive management consultant, film festival director, envelope stuffer, chicken plucker, stripper, pothole counter, necktie folder, reporter, cookie packer, tool & die maker, life coach, comedy traffic school instructor--found themselves expressed in nasty poems and sad comedy routines with elements of insanity.

Oh, yes, and slasher screenplays--a few of which are in discussions to be acquired by film producers. Yay!
