What's more depressing than an aging child movie star? An aging child Reality TV semi-star! Katie Hartman and Leah Rudick of the acclaimed sketch comedy duo Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting play more than 15 characters in The Underdeveloped and Overexposed Life and Death of Deena Domino, the curdled odyssey of a baby pageant princess and monster extraordinaire. A wicked exploration of the duo's twisted fear for the children who know nothing in their lives but the desperation of cheap fame, the show began as a five minute sketch lampooning "Toddlers and Tiaras" and evolved into an hour long comedy that follows the life of one baby pageant princess into adulthood and beyond. When there's nowhere to go but down, proceed with caution . . . and tampered amphetamines.
The Underdeveloped and Overexposed Life and Death of Deena Domino headlined The Ladies Are Funny Festival in Austin, Texas in May and will be playing DC's Capital Fringe Festival in July.
Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting's Leah Rudick and Katie Hartman have been tearing up the NYC comedy circuit since 2008, performing at such notable venues as Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, Caroline's on Broadway and the Peoples Improv Theater.
