TOUR DATES

I WAS ON A SITCOM is a show about finding out who you are when your TV show ends and your "real life" begins. Because when you've played a character on TV for a decade, what exactly does it mean to "be yourself?” This show

offers a rare intimate glimpse inside a popular sitcom

actor’s real, raw life. You will walk away feeling like

you’ve made a new friend — and learned more about

birthing twins than you ever did before. It’s funny, it’s dark, vulnerable, and disarmingly casual — it’s like

having a night out with Eden herself, telling you a

story over drinks. 

 

Michael Ausiello of TV Line wrote:

“In addition to being clever and funny, it

was also deeply poignant, surprisingly

profound and, on a few occasions,

edge-of-your-seat terrifying,” and 

Playbill Magazine named it

"Playbill Playhouse Pick of the Fringe."
