Hollywood Nurses

Nurse Jenny Tyler is running from her past. Nurse Suzanne Medford is running from her present. When their secret worlds collide at Holly View Hospital they ignite forbidden passions, erupting into a dangerous scandal that even the most modern medicine cannot cure. HOLLYWOOD NURSES is a comic homage to the lesbian pulp novels of the 1950s, told with a modern sensibility. Long before these topics were mainstream, the books spoke to a generation unsure of its sexuality by exploring the consequences of "choice," while reassuring readers that they were not alone.

Mark Giordano is 40! And single. And he wishes he lived during the era of the three martini lunch when it was good to be bad. But, he didn't. Former flames, Reality TV, Che' Gueverra, suburban dads, soccer games, an astute nephew and Christmas aren't safe from the musings of this mad man. The 50-minute solo comedy show, MAD MAN, is served chilled with a retro twist of lemon and, an acerbic shot of funny.
