Well yesterday I felt extremely fortunate. I had a small role on the Adult Swim show Childrens Hospital.
Apparently- the show’s producer/ creator Rob Corddry is a big fan of mine (he was also a correspondent for the Daily Show and has been in a bunch of movies and stuff) so when an episode came along that required a porn star- I got a call! I had no idea that someone so clever and so prominent in the world of comedy was jerking off to my porn. THAT IS SO COOL!
The episode was hilarious. Rob’s character on the show is named Blake, and his brother Tinklebutton (played by Paul Scheer) rented out a room in the hospital to a porn company to shoot porn in. I was the “porno patient” in the scene. When Blake caught everyone in the act, he realized that my family and his family were friends… which led to some silliness. I will say the best part of the day was when “Blake” was yelling at my character, and he allowed me to respond with whatever I wanted. I was able to do some improv comedy with a famous comedian! I didn’t have to follow the script … he told me to say whatever I wanted because he trusted my humor. This had to have been one of the most complimentary things I had ever heard.
It was an incredible experience. I would love to do more stuff like this in the future. One of my favorite things about this was that I still got to play “Joanna Angel” and I still got to be a porn star- just a really exaggerated version of a porn star. Basically, I was able to do something mainstream without being all mainstream. I got to be on cable TV and still be a slut. That is something to be proud of!
So here are some pictures from the day.
I usually start my shoots at about 8 am- maybe 9 am…. this shoot started at 5 in the morning! These comedians obviously don’t sleep much.
So here are two pictures of me in the makeup chair at 5am.
Here is a pic from the “porn set”
It’s a mixture of some cast and some crew members. The sexy nurse in the picture is Raven Alexis. She is another porn star- she played the porno nurse.
And here is me, Rob Corddry and Paul Scheer- one of the comedic things about the show is that they wear creepy clown makeup and it’s never really explained why.
And of course, we needed a butt shot. My ass and two clowns!! My dream come true!
I had my very own room on set! I was told I could go in there and relax on my down time. I felt special. It was a sure sign that I was a featured guest on the show and not just an extra or something.
Anyways, here I am in front of the sign on my awesome room.
Here are two other random pics from set
It’s the same hospital they shot Scrubs in. You can kinda tell by this hallway…. right?
I will find out when it is airing and let you all know.
And that’s all the nonsense I have to say for today.
