Follow our blacker, taller, and tamed eyebrow version of Andy Rooney down her rabbit hole of real life media (mis)adventures in this expanded version of her hit Summer Shorts festival hit. In her up-to-the-minute new show, Nancy explores her own bumpy trajectory from actress & writer to television essayist in the ongoing saga of the wild & wooly world of cable news panels. Among her many tales will be one where she recreates a live appearance on Larry King where she spins out of control and has a total meltdown in front of millions of viewers. She may also sing.
Nancy Giles has been a contributor to the Peabody Award-winning CBS News Sunday Morning for 10 years, voicing her opinions on everything from politics and pop culture to the conspiracy of high heels. She was honored with 2 Gracie awards from the Alliance of Women in Media for her work on Sunday. She was also part of the ensemble cast of the critically acclaimed TV series China Beach; was the announcer and co-host of Fox After Breakfast; and her film work includes Joshua, Superheroes, LoverBoy, True Crime, Working Girl, Big and the documentary Before the Music Dies.
