BWW Exclusive: Mary Birdsong Can't Believe It's Not Flotus
Broadway veteran Mary Birdsong is currently making good on a 365 day challenge she's calling #365CharactersIn365Days. She's already posted a bunch of them on her Youtube channel, and now you can see them HERE first! Watch "I Can't Believe It's Not Flotus" below!
Small Screen: Primarily known for her work on Comedy Central (Reno 911, The Daily Show, Review), this Spring you can catch Mary in the HBO series "Succession," produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Other small screen credits include the Middle, SCREAM Queens, and Masters of Sex. You may also have enjoyed her as a boozy, racist, foul-mouthed Irish immigrant in THE KNICK (Steven Soderbergh, dir.)
Big Screen: In "The Descendants," George Clooney yelled at her a lot. In "Adventureland," Kristin Stewart yelled at her a lot (but really quietly, almost w/o moving her lips).
Look, Ma! No Screen: Broadway (Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, Hairspray), Off-B'Way (Love, Loss and What I Wore, with Nora Ephron), Off-Off B'way, a s-ton of church basements, & yes- even a prison or two.
