Bailey has received high acclaim for her standup shows from Los Angeles to Alaska and has done compelling work in previous solo shows, "Can't Get Enough" and "Comfort Zone." She has been seen in commercials, TV, and film, and has appeared in some over the top music videos. Known for playing oddballs, she says her theme has always been, "crazy is the new normal."
Bailey attended Boston University where she divided her time between school and downhill ski racing on the eastern circuit. Currently, she is a Spiritual Mind Practitioner at Spiritworks in Burbank. Her greatest thrill is performing in her solo show. HOOKED, a true love story, of how her life evolved into something much more positive and spiritual as a result of finding love in a most unexpected way after living in the dark for so ling as an outcall hooker.
HOOKED is the captivating journey of a woman filled with anxiety, all the while hoping that the adrenal rush from performing standup comedy will sublimate her fears. She narrowly escapes death on a comedy gig in Tucson and comes home from another show to find her husband dead. Trying to please the new person that shows up in her life, Bailey embarks on a spiritual path which rings untrue until a life-altering event occurs. HOOKED is a richly passionate show which will take you on a roller coaster ride you can't and don't want wish to stop!
After two successful runs in NoHo, it is Bailey's great pleasure to bring HOOKED to Burbank before it hits the Big Apple.
