Christine Pedi Biography

Christine the “Lady of 1000 Voices" first discovered her talent for multiple personalities (Merman, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters etc) thru her long association with the legendary off Broadway revue FORBIDDEN BROADWAY having performed in companies all over the world including Londons West End, Japan, Los Angeles, NYC, Singapore & DEEtroit. She received a Drama Desk nomination for her work in FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD (Liza, Rosie Perez, Judi Dench, Sharon Stone etc) as well as an LA Ovation & NAACP Award

She also brought her collection of Divas to off B'ways long running NEWSICAL the Musical and recently starred in and co-produced SPAMILTON: An American Parody written by Forbidden Broadways creator Gerard Allessandrini.

.

On Broadway she played Mama Morton ( yes just one character...all night) in the 2nd longest running musical of all time CHICAGO (THE longest running AMERICAN musical BTW.) Her Broadway debut was in LITTLE ME with Martin Short & Faith Prince, directed by Rob Marshall and she played several peculiar callers (again with the voices) opposite Liev Schreiber (well not opposite ... she was in the basement of the Longacre Theatre talking into a microphone while he was acting and smoking on stage but it was dynamic) in Eric Bogosians TALK RADIO directed by Robert Falls.




RESUME

‚Äč

Speaking of radio she is the daily host of SIRIUS XM RADIOS On Broadway channel playing music of the stage & screen and interviewing Show Biz legends (Mon-Fri 9am-3pm ch 72) On Saturday she and the "aMAHzing" Seth Rudetsky co-host the DUELING DIVAS. Fans of Howard Stern can hear her provide the occasional celebrity voice on his Sirius morning show.



Off Broadway she played the title role in MISS ABIGAILS GUIDE TO DATING MATING AND MARRIAGE and A BROADWAY DIVA CHRISTMAS. At The York Theatre she performed in JERRYS GIRLS and had the coveted (yes COVETED!) Joann Worley track in THE MAD SHOW as well as the Lanie Kazan role in MY FAVORITE YEAR. She's appeared in many incarnations of THE A TRAIN PLAYS, THE 24 HOUR PLAYS and many glorious PROJECT SHAWS.



Her cabaret show GREAT DAMES has won the New York Bistro & Nitelife Awards and has played NYC, Los Angeles, London, South Africa & beyond. THERE‚ÄôS NO BIZNESS LIKE SNOW BIZNESS her holiday show has been a seasonal staple in NYC since 2008. She‚Äôs performed in that ‚Äúcutie patootie‚ÄĚ John McD‚Äôs Cabaret Corner on the Rosie O‚ÄôDonnell Show and sung in many major NYC venues & cruiseships including Birdland, Feinsteins/54 Below, The Iridium, ,The Metropolitan Room, The Algonquin, The Laurie Beechman, Avery Fisher Hall, Don‚Äôt Tell Mamas...and the QE2...AND she's performed for President & Mrs Clinton (playing a singing HIllary!)



Fans of THE SOPRANOS may recognize her as Mrs Bobby Baccala. (4 scenes, 5 lines ... dead. BUT he loved her so much he couldn't defrost her ziti!)



She has many popular comic videos on Youtube including some posted by drunk fans filming with iPhones on nights that she wasn‚Äôt ‚Äúcamera ready‚ÄĚ but she forgives them because it‚Äôs all about the looooooooove... and the musical comedy. dammit. Here SHIT LIZA SAYS videos are widely popular.
