Radio Interview at WROK 1440 by Greg Saunders
Lang Parker went to LA to dance…and ended up acting & doing “Stand-Up”.
How does THAT happen?
After being told by an acting instructor that she had great “stage presence” she was given an opportunity to do a few minutes at a small show. Even though she felt she bombed, an audience member told her she had what it takes. That audience member turned out to be Milton Berle’s brother!
I remember Lang for being the tall, attractive, short-haired girl, one class ahead of me at my high school in Muskego, Wisconsin that acted in all of the school plays AND was brave enough to dance a solo routine at the annual Tri-M “POPS CONCERT” talent show…in her shiny, purple, skin-tight leotard! Hot Stuff! (Who has that video?)
In spite of having “only 5 minutes of material” her comedy talent landed her a spot on the TV show “Last Comic Standing” in 2003 where Buddy Hacket (yes…THAT Buddy Hacket) said of Lang,
“You are a star!”
The 2008 winner of the California Funniest Female Contest, Lang, who is not only a comedian but also a fitness instructor, recently performed for U.S. troops in the “Armed with Laughter: Soul-dier Boot Camp Comedy Tour” at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan. Armed with Laughter was organized by Armed Forces Entertainment, which brought together four comedians who also taught different fitness courses.
