Leslie Marinelli starring in That's What She Said 2014


Ever since I was cast as The Conductor of The Dental Hygiene Train in my 1st grade class play, I’ve had, as they say in the biz, “the theater (pronounced THEE-a-TAH) bug.”

As fate would have it, these days I do most of my performing for my Cub Scout den, but I do try to get out there a few times a year to speak at conferences, deliver key note addresses for clubs and businesses, and perform my original comedy monologues at local theaters.

If you’d like to have me speak to your group about anything from parenting humor, to the art of self-publishing, to how to inject humor into your own writing, please contact me at leslie.marinelli@gmail.com.
