Francesca is best known for her appearances in sexy and over the top hilarious web videos for "The Key of Awesome," "Barely Political," and has also appeared in numerous movies such as "15 Till Midnight," and "Uncle Melvin's Apartment," which is just premiering and screening at the Tampa Bay Comedy Festival in the last week.
Her viral videos alone have attracted more than 200 million views and loyal Internet fans are especially fond of her Lady Gaga impersonations, also Tron Girl and in Thriller Beach, both in the US as well as internationally, especially in Europe. With a record like that under her slim 25" belt and her very supporting, surrounding and appealing numbers that are rapidly making her a major heartthrob, Francesca launched her own YouTube Channel on Feb 14, 2011, Valentine's Day, to further develop her own brand and style of both comedy and steamy sensation.
Having put together a team headed up by veteran NYC comedy writer/producer Jeffrey Gurian, who is currently co-producing a documentary with Chris Rock and has written and worked with top comedic crowd pleasers such as Rodney Dangerfield, Richard Belzer and Joan Rivers, to name some, fans look forward tonight to Lauren discussing the unfolding of the efforts of writing and working with Gurian, and Joey Reynolds is certain to be a perfect kind of host for her in a talk environment, as he is for just about everyone.
Reynolds, a long time radio industry top talent since the 1960's is often referred to as the first of the "shock jocks," for his then extremely outrageous style, which has mellowed some, and he says especially since October 22, 1986, a day that so many NY radio fans remember well, when WNBC traffic reporter Jane Dornacker died while they were on the air together, her helicopter crashing, sending shock waves through WNBC co-workers and NY radio audiences.
The new Joey Reynolds' show, itself just launched last month on WNBC-DT2 (New York Nonstop), is is enjoying its own great reception as part of their 24x7 entertainment and lifestyle focused digital subchannel of WNBC Channel 4, which also features news updates every quarter hour. Reynolds has been quoted as saying “This is ... the Anti-Christ of demographics..."
Francesca will likely discuss her new YouTube Channel launch as well as its latest effort, "Oscars of Gaga," just released in step with the Academy Awards. It is a collection of funny and fast paced short segment parodies of the best picture nominee films, each with a Lady Gaga theme, with Lauren of course as the Gaga. Featured in the segments are Jeffrey Gurian in a scene entitled "The Queen's English," and in "Gaga Fighter," Walter Masterson, of "Law and Order" note as well as Parkour free runner and self described full time zombie hunter. This collection of actors are found often working together of late on and in each other's projects, and all are producers, directors, writers and sharpened comedy pros in their own right, and this writer and student of comedy is very pleased to point out the evolution of and gelling of something special whenever they appear together, something extremely special in the comedy business. Francesca also has another video series just launching, with actor, comedian and host "coppin stayles" Derek DeAngelis, who has the longest running weekly show in YouTube History, "Fast Lane Daily," ( recently celebrating 1,000 episodes).
So, look for Lauren Francesca with Joey Reynolds starting at Midnight tonight on WNBC-DT2 TV. Francesca's new efforts can be seen online at http://YouTube.com/
