"Sorority Girls from Hell" was developed in my stand up act at The Comedy Store in LA. Micheal Nesmith was casting a special for NBC and saw the potential for SGFH to be a video. WOW was he right. After it aired every gay bar in the country was showing it ! Gay men were dressing as the characters in the video. It became a huge cult hit. Still today after all these years, its attracted a new generation. Thanks to the LBGT community forming SGFH so successful. ENJOY !
LOIS BROMFIELD. BIO
I was born in Toronto Canada, but like every frustrated Canadian who wants to be in show business, I made my way to the US. I wanted to be a stand up comedian. so I headed to NYC. However, my big break came in LA, when Mitzi Shore, the owner, of the Comedy Store recognized my talent. This was the beginning of the comedy boom! So many comedians were making their careers, Roseanne, Eddie Murphy, Sandra Bernard, Robin Williams and many others. The Comedy Store was my home to develop my comedy and I used it almost nightly for years. During these years I also hit the road playing all the major clubs as well as countless television appearances. When I turned my attention to sitcom writing, it was Roseanne Barr who gave me my break as a writer. I continued to write and produce on other sitcoms : Drew Carey, Grace Under Fire and many more. I produced interstitials for HBO. Also a show runner for a Toronto based talk show. Produced a realty show for The History Channel. In 2018 I performed in London and Munich. Now turning my attention to writing my first book will be a memoir. My second book in the works a short story ( comedy) about a young women in a lucky streak in Vegas.
