Comedian Laurie McDermott, known to thousands of fans as “The CEO of the House,” is a captivating performer with a fresh face and a unique point-of-view that has fans clamoring to hear what she’s going to say next.
A mix between sweet Mary Tyler Moore and manipulative Eva Longoria on “Desperate Housewives,” Laurie has the incredible ability to perform to any audience, in any arena, large or small, innocently switching material from sweet and clean to sharp, edgy and unobviously dirty.
Touring Internationally and the US since 1995, Laurie, the Second City Graduate and Chicago native now living in Los Angeles, appears at comedy clubs, festivals, casinos, corporate events, concert events, and when she’s not afraid to vomit or wobble on her feet, cruise ships as far away as Hong Kong and Korea on Military Tours.
Laurie has also appeared in dozens of commercials (Disney, Direct TV and Ikea) and television shows (LA Exclusive, Movies & More, Comic Relief IV and Comic Diva’s Live). Laurie even hosted a wildly spontaneous advice-call-in radio show she created for Classic Hits 97FM, titled, “For Lovers Only.”
An award-winning author and syndicated columnist, Laurie’s laugh-out-loud articles and columns appear regularly in Family, Bride and Parenting Magazines. In Los Angeles, it’s the magazines “LA family” and “The Crayon Report,” where one can always find the most current published printing of Laurie’s well-followed and well-loved, “The CEO of the House” column.
