Actress and stand-up comedian Judy Dixon (“The Talent Given Us”) is coming out in the upcoming gay romantic comedy “Coffee Date” opening in Los Angeles, CA at the Regent Showcase Theatre on November 10, 2006. “Coffee Date” has been an audience favorite at film festivals and will also open nationally for a limited release in cities including Houston, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago and New York.
Written and directed by Stewart Wade, “Coffee Date” is a romantic comedy of errors about a straight man, Todd (Jonathan Bray) whose life spins out of control when an unexpected friendship with Kelly, (Wilson Cruz “My So Called Life”) a gay man, causes everyone in his life to believe he too is gay.
Judy plays Todd’s co-worker, Ann, a sassy character at a happy hour outing. Judy’s rapid-salvo delivery and enchanting performance has reaped huge laughs from film festival audiences nationwide. Judy (judydixon.com) received critical praise from Debbie Elias, a film critic for the Santa Monica Observer as “One to watch” when the film premiered at the 2006 Outfest.
Judy just wrapped starring in two horror films “Pashittu” directed by Ian Harris and “Negative Space” directed by Kevin Abosch. She can be seen in the independent film “Running Out of Time in Hollywood”, which is currently making the film festival rounds.
A favorite on the comedy circuit, Judy performs and co-produces along with Andrew Hunt, the popular weekly stand-up show “Comedy Cake Lounge” in West Hollywood, which is a semi-improvised show where well known and up and coming stand-up comedians create new material on the spot with the help of audience suggestions.
“Coffee Date” stars Jonathan Silverman, Sally Kirkland, Elaine Hendrix, Jason Stuart, Deborah Gibson and Lisa Ann Walter. Film is produced by Cindy Peters, executive produced by Antonio Brown. Film and Music Entertainment, Inc. is distributing the film.
