TALENT: Trapeze

Here are some fun videos of Cassidy both succeeding AND failing at trapeze. Both are equally as important in the circus!

TALENT: Improv/Stand-Up Comedian

When Cassidy was sixteen years old, she walked into the local dive bar for their open mic comedy night and did her first 5 minute stand-up comedy routine. She was terrible .But she realized how much she loved making people laugh, with her or at her.

She still does some pretty bad stand-up sometimes, but mostly likes doing sketch, improv, and musical comedy. She is a recent member of the touring musical improv group “Broadways Next Hit Musical" and is an improv performer/emcee on The Ride NYC!

TALENT: Instagram Queen

Cassidy really likes her Instagram! She thinks you should check it out and follow her because she is funny AND nice. @Casadilla67

TALENT: Writer/Producer

Cassidy has recently discovered the joys of doing things in the industry BESIDES performing! She has been on the original creative team for All Star: The Best Broadway Musical (a satirical musical featuring ONLY the song All Star by Smash Mouth) for two years, and plans to help foster its growth to Broadway. In addition, Cassidy is in the process of developing the play she wrote: “A Conversation With Ted Bundy”.

TALENT: Tricking People Into Believing She Can Ice Skate

Cassidy once played Donald Trump in a sketch on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee (TBS) by lying about her ice skating ability. Shortly thereafter Cassidy was cast as a featured extra on Divorced (HBO), by lying about her ice skating ability. On Divorced, she was placed in the “ice expert” group with two professional ice skaters. No one questioned her ability. Including those two times, Cassidy has ice skated a total of 5 times and is therefore presumably, a very bad ice skater and a very good liar.
