HONORA TALBOTT is an actor, writer, and opera singer• living in LA. Her sketch videos have been written up by LA Weekly, the LAist, and KPCC, seen on TV, and featured many times on the front page of Funny or Die. You might recognize her from a beer commercial — she’s the one in the bikini •• — or from her 5 minutes of local news celebrity when NBC, CBS, Fox, and KTLA aired her Pharrell’s “Happy” parody FIX LA’s SIDEWALKS. It even garnered the approval of Mayor Eric Garcetti, who tweeted, "love this video parody.” We are totally BFFs now and, oh hold on a sec, he just texted me… •••
Okay, back to third person. In addition to sketches, Honora co-created a web series “Old Souls”, which was featured in Backstage Magazine and won BEST OF FESTIVAL at iTV (Independent Television) Fest. Most recently, she won 3rd place in Funny or Die’s Make Em LAFF Competition, in conjunction with the LA Film Festival and FOX.
