About Lisa Orkin


Hello and welcome to my Patreon.

I'm Lisa Orkin and I tell audio stories mostly in audio, I have three podcasts., Project Woo Woo(current), Love Bite's, and (semi-current)Honestly Lisa I jump in Honestly Lisa once in a while to chat with my parents who live on a different plain. I am soon going to my fourth, Lisa Upside Down. 

I also make little films and video musings. I love to experiment and tell stories in other mediums... I love throwing paint at the wall and seeing what happens. Here I will share with you my process, my ups, and my downs, and the final products too.

Little about me, I started as a classical actor and that was not my bailiwick cause people always laughed at my seriousness, I went on to stand up comedy, then storytelling all over Los Angeles. Storytelling felt good, then came the solo show stage, and people liked them. So I put a band together and made my own genre of comedy, storytelling, and music and took on the road, I went on to creating films with some Hollywood friends(do I name drop) Adam Mckay and Shira Piven... the whole while I was writing and voicing comedy radio commercials to pay the bills. And then came podcasting where I put together all I have learned to tell stories through, comedy, solo work, TV, Radio, and Film to my favorite medium, Podcasting. Because I can wear my PJ's and in audio anything is possible... you can be on the moon or under the sea... theatre of the mind.

Let’s get a little deeper below.

Lisa Upside Down(current) is a semi-autobiographical scripted comedy about my marriage falling apart, taking care of my over-sexed over-involved parents, raising my soon to be a teenage boy. And then finding refuge with two soulful potheads that happen to live next to my soon to be ex-husband and his girlfriend that happens to look just like me. And there is also my great Aunt Rose who is my sage and into magic mushrooms. 

And this is where I need your support most creating, paying for studio, editors, and hopefully my brilliant actors. It is production heavy and I have episodes finished and three written. My goal is 9 episodes per season but let's finish season one first.
 
Project Woo Woo(current) is my way of fulfilling my deepest desire to look deep into the hearts and minds of the most important spiritual, historical, and intellectual influencers, past and present, all played by some of the most brilliant comedic actors, comedians, and writers in Los Angeles. It is part comedy, part performance art. Unlimited by time and space, I suspend reality to talk with people I have always wanted to. There is not one minute that I do not believe I'm talking to the real people. Project Woo Woo needs a little support too.

And then there's Love Bites, tiny rom coms based on real conversations fro my love life all with the one only Robbie Rist who plays every man in my life.

And last but not least, Honestly Lisa the one that started it all and has morphed with different stages in my life. It started off with me just interviewing men about their feelings until I figured out they have feelings. Then I started to interview people to help me find myself, you know, like my dad, my rabbi, my ex-husband, my brothers... moving on to self-help people and learned I will never find myself. And on late I have been having sometimes daily, sometimes monthly conversations with my dead parents.

And that's the Poo Poo Platter... I will keep telling stories and would love your support. I will post my process, my woes, notes, photos, rehearsals, bloopers, scripts and ask for your thoughts sometimes. Hope I see you here.





Goals
$0 of $750 per month
If we do this it will pay for for actors sound designers and guarantee more episodes.  This would actually pay for a full season 9-12 episodes of Lisa Upside Down. And yay!!! This would be amazing balls!!!
