||Mal has been roaming enthusiastically around the stages
of the Boston area for over a decade. Her performance background
includes improv comedy with Guilty Children, a writer, producer
and performer with Aunt Evy's Comedy Bee, an all women's sketch
and improv comedy troupe, and one half of the coed queer comedy
duo, The Brian+Mal Show, with her deliciously talented longtime
comedy partner, Brian Jewell.
Brian+Mal performed together in high schools
across Massachusetts, in Provincetown, at the National GLBT
Theater Festival and created and performed several original
productions, including It Came From Brian+Mal, The Big Dish,
and Brian+Mal: Unbound, all of which were directed by Renee
C. Farster. Other stage highlights include roles as Stanley
in Open City's production of Belle Reprieve, as Al Dente
in Triangle Theater's production of The Well of Horniness,
as Scott in T&A Theater's production of Gender Bender,
as Xander in Queer Soup's production of Buffy The Vampire
Slayer's High School Reunion and lastly, as a drag performer,
Duke Malvis with the Boston based drag burlesque performance
troupe, The Princesses of Porn with The Dukes of Dykedom
which has performed at Vixen in Provincetown for the past
few summers and various other venues with a trail of red
lipstick and broken hearts behind them.
As an out lesbian genderqueer actor, Mal aspires to using
her gift of humor to create a society free from homophobia
and to make schools safer places for GLBT students. To that
end, she performs educational comedy shows in middle and
high schools across Massachusetts. Her show, "That's So Gay!" has
appeared in eight high schools this past year.
She is a co-founder, writer, performer and producer with
Queer Soup. And is also a co-founder and performer with Only
Fooling, an all women's physical comedy and clown troupe
that performs shows for all ages. For the past eight
years, Mal has been clown doctor with The Big Apple Circus
Clown Care at Boston Children's Hospital and has spent three
weeks in Paris, France working with Le Rire Medecin through
Clown Care's international exchange program. Mal also reviewed
films for the Here and Now show on WBUR, Boston's NPR station.
