 I've been a wanderer, wondering if the swerving would straighten  so I can dance freely on the edge of being a rebel with a cause!
-LA 

 

 

 

HELLO!  IT'S LA!

Humor serves to resolve uncertainty, relieves tension, engenders trust and promotes social bonds, that is why I created LALAUGH Productions. 

I don't tell jokes. I don't need to because there is so much irony in simply being human, that it's all there for the taking.

I migrated at 6 years old to Como, Italy from Marin County, California.  I spread my wings in San Francisco in the late 60's to take up the Italian American reins. To steer between two languages simultaneously. 

TV!

At 8 years old I began absorbing comediennes such as, Carol Burnett, Lilly Tomlin, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Lucille Ball and others who inspired me.

The acting, singing, writing, dancing provided me with much experimental fun and some pretty groovy reviews and opportunities.

So I keep on.  Reel

ACTING RESUME

REVIEWS

As a creative-driven entertainment professional with over 20 years of experience as an actress, singer, director, choreographer, writer, published author, & certified creativity coach, I have had opportunities with recreating the human condition in unexpected ways. Satirically speaking Comedy has been my biggest joy when it comes to tragedy. The human race being the only one of all relations that's lost the inner knowing of it's purpose.  Egoistic Growth does not create social justice! Only the Ego benefits and the Ego never gets enough.The lost trust in human relationships is hurting us and the enviroment. My new character: GHR will be narrating this next Journey.
