For Immediate Release
DADDY DIDN’T DIE, DID HE? <http://www.hollywoodfringe.org/projects/1346>
A New One-Act Comedy
Written and Performed by Will Matthews & Casey Christensen
Directed by Jeffrey Addiss
Thanks to his oddball mourners, Daddy’s funeral is running way behind
schedule and it’s up to one overwhelmed undertaker to get it back on track
in this world premiere farce.
*Daddy Didn’t Die, Did He?* is Will Matthews & Casey Christensen’s seventh
show together, and their first at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. The two
have been a comedy team for over twelve years, and have written and
performed their sketch shows at the New York International Fringe Festival,
the Los Angeles Comedy Festival, the ACME Comedy Theater, iO West, and UCB.
*New York Magazine* called them “breakthrough performers” and *
NewYorkTheater.com* said, "They are charming actors, together and
separately… their enthusiasm onstage is infectious.” Their short film *Hard
Sell*, was named Runner-Up for Best Writing in LA’s No Budget Film Festival.
*Will Matthews* (writer/performer) was a series regular on MTV’s *Punk’d* and
on Logo’s *Rick and Steve*, and had a recurring role on ABC’s *The Middle*.
Together, Will and Jeffrey are currently developing features with Paramount
Pictures and Overbrook Entertainment, and recently completed a half-hour
pilot for FX.
*Casey Christensen* (writer/performer) has appeared on *Chelsea Lately* and
co-wrote and co-starred in the short film *Skate Great!*. She recently made
her directorial debut with the short film *Hard Sell*, in which she
starred, co-wrote & co-produced with Will. Casey also performs in another
Hollywood Fringe show, *Hemophilia’s House of Horrors*.
*Jeffrey Addiss* (director) most recently directed and co-starred in the
webseries, *The Majestic*. His acting work includes over two dozen national
commercials, *Light Years* (with Allison Janney), and the world premiere of
David Mamet’s *Two Unrelated Plays* (with Ed O’Neil and Michael Cassidy) at
the Center Theater Group.
