Julie Brown _ Episode 389

Steve Cooper talks with actor/writer/singer/producer Julie Brown. Julie’s outrageous talent brought her to the stand-up comedy scene in LA and San Francisco in the 80s, where she quickly grabbed the attention of the gay community. Discovered by comedy legend Lily Tomlin, her life changed forever when Tomlin cast her in The Incredible Shrinking Woman. After writing and starring in Earth Girls Are Easy with Jim Carrey & Geena Davis, she skyrocketed into the national spotlight. Some of her other commended movie roles include Attack of the 5’2” Women, Plump Fiction, Like Mike, Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment and Clueless. With things moving at full steam, she jumped back and forth from movies to TV, capturing roles on hit shows like Laverne & Shirley, Murphy Brown, Quantum Leap, Buffalo Bill, and The Jeffersons. Recently, she flaunted her amazing talent on fan favorites CSI, Six Feet Under, and The Wizards of Waverly Place. She hosted her own comedy show Just Say Julie on MTV for several seasons. This led to her star turn on The Edge on Fox, and Strip Mall on Comedy Central-shows she also helped create. When the film Clueless was spun off as an ABC sitcom in 1996, she reprised her role as Millie, the gritty, hilarious gym coach. Undeniably talented, she has made a huge impact as a musical artist. After the release of her first album Goddess In Progress, her style and sound grabbed the attention of the international crowd, and caught fire all across the globe. Her singles, Girl Fight Tonight, The Homecoming Queen’s Got a Gun and I Like ‘Em Big And Stupid were instant hits and received heavy airplay throughout the country.
