Funny and quirky has always been a charming combo, traits with which ZOE FARMINGDALE has successfully entertained in an array of mediums. Notably will be her appearance at the LA Shorts Fest 2012 in “This is Caroline“, a story of how a bizarrely risible incident can force in this case, the lead Caroline to acknowledge real feelings of loneliness. ZOE takes on the role of 16-year-old Gabby, who can relate to Caroline on a number of levels. According to her, it was a wonderful experience taking part in the film as she got to perform lots of comedy. and it came from a different but very real part inside her to be able to play an intelligent young person tackling her own struggles. Add her exposure on a myriad of music videos, recently shooting for new artist Arcane Converter which will be the 4th she’s done in the past year and you have a compelling talent who will receive ardency from everyone.
So without further ado, I’ll let ZOE unveil more about her imminent projects.
In her words:
1. I have been doing a lot of shooting this summer for programing that will be coming to you on your XBox. I’ll be playing parodies of some of your favorite pop culture figures alongside comedian J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm).
2. I have worked for The Onion a couple of times, including in “Nation’s Girlfriends Reveal Economic Plan”, which was featured on The View.
3. I have a lot of live performance, especially comedy! I perform twice every week at the PIT, one of the premiere improv theatres in NYC– Wednesdays with my improv team Family Haircut, Thursdays with my musical improv team THEM. I also write and play music in my own comedy variety show, The Zoeshow, which is growing in popularity! (you can find some clips online if you google The Zoeshow Zoe Farmingdale)
4. I am co-writing a musical called “Preschool!”. We performed the 15-minute version this summer at the West Village Musical Theatre Festival and swept the awards in our category, winning Best Score, Best Lyrics, Best Book, Best Song (The Peanut Butter Song– which my character sang!), and Best Show. In addition, I won BEST ACTRESS of the entire festival for playing 4 year-old peanut butter-obsessed Marty based on audience and industry votes! We can’t wait to develop the show more and hope to produce it in 2013! I also performed in a production of Legally Blonde last month with Harrison Summer Theatre/ The White Plains Performing Arts Center.
5. I will also be performing in an upcoming modern dance piece with choreographer Kimberly Gair. I have also performed across the country with keila cordova dances.
