Lennon Parham is an actor, comedian, writer & producer. She can be seen opposite Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson in the HBOMax comedy MINX, about the fictional creation of the first erotic magazine for women in 1970s LA. Prior to that, she was a series regular in the ABC sitcom BLESS THIS MESS. Previously, she co-created and starred in her own show, PLAYING HOUSE and has recurred as Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ hilarious Senior Advisor, “Karen Collins” whose specialized field was “common sense” on HBO’s VEEP.
She can also be seen rocking shoulder pads as Liz Flemming, the feminist math teacher at William Penn Academy on SCHOOLED, the 90’s spin-off of THE GOLDBERGS also on ABC. Additionally, Lennon has made a number of memorable appearances on television including HBO’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, DOCUMENTARY NOW, GHOSTED, REVIEW WITH FOREST MCNEIL, LADY DYNAMITE, MAD MEN and PARKS AND RECREATION.
If you listen closely, you can hear her dulcet tones giving voice to characters on animated shows like BOB'S BURGERS, LITTLE BIG AWESOME, ANIMALS and ADVENTURE TIME, as well as the cult-fave podcast WOMP IT UP!
On the feature side, she also had flashy supporting roles in THE HOUSE, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2, CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC and OTHER PEOPLE. Most recently, Lennon directed two episodes on the second season of BLESS THIS MESS. She has also directed an episode of PLAYING HOUSE.
She is a proud alumnus of the improv and sketch theater, the Upright Citizens Brigade, and performs there whenever she can.
As you can imagine we dive deep and cover a lot - such as red carpet nightmares, being an improv guru, being a teacher, fear, not getting into SNL, creating a one woman show, coaching, and shows that get cancelled all in a playful and funny manner!
So sit back, relax and enjoy today's empowering chat.
The video footage of this entire chat is now out as well (one day after release)! So check them out on YouTube under Michael Kahan
