The last time my daughter Katherine wore bangs she also wore blue Keds T-strap dress shoes, lacy ankle socks and dresses that tied in a big bow behind her back.
She rode bicycles with training wheels and held my hand when she crossed the street.
She loved to watch Full House (we called it the Baby Show), Step by Step (it took place in Wisconsin) and, later, 7th Heaven (who wouldn’t want a mom like Annie Camden?).
Despite all my best efforts to freeze time, Katherine grew up and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in comedy.
Katherine played a pop-rock chugging, bang-wearing, Exclamation perfume-smelling grown woman stuck in the 90s. She and her comedy partner and sister-from-another-mother Leah Frires enjoyed a fun and funny two-day shoot with Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner from Full House), Beverly Mitchell (Lucy Camden from Seventh Heaven) and Christine Lakin (Alicia “Al” Lambert from Step by Step).
In addition to this talented cast, Leah and Katherine enjoyed the unique pleasure of working with an 11-person, all female crew. They had a great time.
Here’s to more smart comedy and confident creators who keep us laughing!
