Hey, I'm Barbara!

Jersey City, New Jersey

I am a native of Chicago where I was part of Laugh, Inc. a successful comedy group that performed around the Chicago area. 

A graduate of the Second City Workshop, I came to NYC to seek fame and fortune via Tampa, FL where I appeared in commercials and TV pilots. 

Since coming to NYC I have appeared in various theatrical productions such as The Vagina Monologues, A Month in the Country, Lady Windermere’s Fan, and Tartuffe.  

I am a recurring character (Edie) on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,  Girls (Libby) and a recurring judge (Judge Peck) on Law & Order and a guest star on Elementary.  

I have starred in two award winning independent films.  One of which earned me a nomination for Best Actress in the Houston Comedy Film Festival.  

I have just written, starred and produced a short "BOOM" and am hoping to raise enough money to finish it's post-production.

I am currently being represented by SW Artists.
