A veteran actress, Mariann began dabbling in standup in 2008. She now considers it more than just a dabble and has played in clubs coast-to-coast -- from Caroline's in NYC to the Hollywood Improv.

A Chicago native, she got her show biz start on the streets of New York... literally, as a writer-performer doing sketch comedy on a pull-down stage off the side of a truck with Off-Centre Theatre. She also toured with the improv groups, The Proposition and 3 Blacque Chix.

Mariann is known mostly, though, for her work in television -- including co-starring with comic legend, Redd Foxx, as his daughter, Elizabeth, on the CBS sitcom, The Royal Family. Check out the demo reel on her website & you'll probably recognize her from a bunch of other stuff as well, including: going toe-to-toe with Mo'Nique as her nemesis, Hannah Foster on The Parkers; cozying up to Sherman Hemsley as his stripper girlfriend, Lois Keller on Family Matters, and berating Meshach Taylor as his buppie-from-hell girlfriend, Lita Ford, on Designing Women.

She's also guest-starred opposite Kirstie Alley, John Ritter and Brett Butler on their respective sitcoms and was heralded for her comedy chops as clueless mom, Julie Pinderhughes, in a New York Times review of the Kid 'n Play cult comedy film, Class Act.

"M.O.I.S.T.!" -- the sex-istential comedy-with-music Mariann co-wrote and co-stars in with Iona Morris & which ran for nine months at LA's historic Hayworth Theatre -- is scheduled to open Off-Broadway in the Fall, 2012. And, yes, there's a sitcom treatment for it.

Union affiliations: SAG - AFTRA - AEA & an aspiring Teamster.
