    About Mary Kate Wiles

    A native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Mary Kate Wiles has been making a name for herself in several high-profile digital projects since stepping onto the scene as Lizzie’s outlandish and ultimately tragic younger sister, Lydia Bennet, in 2012’s Emmy-award winning The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Since then, Mary Kate has starred in various acclaimed projects such as I Ship It (featured at Sundance 2015), Squaresville, Spies Are Forever, and appeared alongside Sean Astin and Darren Criss in last year’s Wayward Guide for the Untrained Eye. Her various digital projects boast over 125 million views and have raised over a million dollars in successful Kickstarters.

    Since 2016, Wiles has been a member of Shipwrecked Comedy as both actor and producer. She has led the group through three successful crowdfunding efforts - raising over $300K combined - and to festivals in Toronto, Germany, and around the United States. Wiles runs Shipwrecked with her romantic partner of many years, Sean Persaud, and his sister Sinéad Persaud. Together, they have created series such as Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party, the recently wrapped Headless: A Sleepy Hollow Story featuring Matt Mercer (Critical Role) and John Rubinstein, and many other shorts sketches for a dedicated and loyal fanbase.

    Independently, Mary Kate Wiles has produced a well-received audio play podcast centering on Anne of Green Gables. She and other actors gather to read through Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved novel. In combination with its sequel, Anne of Avonlea, they have garnered well over 300K streams.

    Wiles has made appearances on numerous shows in traditional media, including Young Sheldon, Code Black, and The Middle. She has also lent her voice to the female Mysterio in Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man. See her as everyone's favorite evil babysitter, Vicky, in the live-action reboot of The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder.

    Laura Moore - Shay Interview

    Laura Moore - Shay Interview

    In this episode, we have invited Laura Moore - Shay, a Certified Personal Trainer and IFBB Bikini Pro. Today, Laura talks about her podcast Bikini Things, competing and being kind to yourself.
    Laura’s Journey
    Way back in college, Laura always hated how she looked then later, she found weight training. When she started to undergo the weight training, she saw her body change and suddenly, she could eat more and still look good. Over the years, she always wanted to do it and she had a job out of very demanding grad school. There was no way to make a bodybuilding lifestyle work with that.
    Laura’s first competition
    She did her first show in February of 2017. She placed second at that time and Laura felt like she was looking good. After that, she did one show which helped her pick up her confidence and give me some encouragement to keep going and see the potential for herself.
    Always Work hard.
    With anything that you do always give your best shot, you become successful, and that's how you become better at something if You can't expect to have the results if you have big goals.
    Laura starting training other women.
    In 2020, Laura's friend approached her to train for an upcoming competition so that's the starting point of how Laura starts teaching other people. After that, she plans to have more clients and receives many referrals or people who see the transformations.
    Entering the Podcast World
    Laura enjoys talking about fitness and competing and sharing ideas. After starting the podcast, she also met more people in the fitness community and could get fellow IFBB pros on to interview.
    The Bikini Word
    There's so much that goes into fitness. One of those things because it's appearance-oriented and because there's sort of a low bar to entry. A lot of coaches or people online don't necessarily have certificates or any formal knowledge you get. You can get all kinds of stuff.

    Starting Stand Up Comedy In 2021

    Starting Stand Up Comedy In 2021

    Zack Lyman tells you 10 things he would focus on if he had to start over in stand up comedy in 2021!

    If I was starting comedy 2021

    1. Simple idea, I would try to write one hour a day. Maybe you sit at a coffee shop and write.
    or you work on some other parts of comedy like listening back to any recordings you have and
    being honest with yourself, how was my speed? Did I get the jokes out? Honest but not too harsh
    since you are at just the beginning of this long long journey.

    2. I would find an online list of the open mics and try to adventure to a new one each week.
    finding your favorite open mics can really keep you going when you been having a hard day or month.

    3. Find a writing partner, someone that you feel comfortable with and you feel your styles compliment
    each other. I write with my friend Lou moon who can come up with some out of box ideas. But I also
    love writing with my friend Savannah who really understands joke structure and keeps me from rambling
    too much.

    4. Rest is important, taking a day off from the open mics if you did an open mic everyday for 30 days
    I would not be surprised if you became worse. I mean you can just push too hard and really lose yourself
    taking a step back and living life is important. Living life is where I find a lot humor
    just recently I took a vacation and came back to write 10 new mins about what happened.

    5. Study those who you love! Watch your favorite comedy special again and review what is truly going on.
    How are they moving? Where are they pausing? Why did they change up their timing or slow down? What is
    different at a 10 min mark vs the energy at 45min mark.

    6. Do not worry about finding your voice just yet. You are new! Your voice will come over time.
    I knew I found my voice when I would write jokes and think "wow that doesn't sound like me,
    I am not doing that" Then I slowly stopped writing jokes that didn't sound like me.

    7. Start setting comedy goals. I like simple ones like 5 new jokes this month. Then putting something
    crazy on the list like Audition for Americas got talent this year. Or record and listen to all my sets this
    month. And email a comedy packet to SNL. These goals will help you push through the hard times.

    8. Record all your sets on your phone. Yes every set, I still have recordings from 2011 that I cringe
    at the idea of even listening to. But YES do it, you will thank yourself later.

    9. Video record when you can, I know it is hard to get good footage. When you are new its not recording to
    post content online. I would record when I can so I can watch my nervous ticks and try to get rid of them.
    Sometimes your movements can giveaway the punchline or ruin the set up. You want to seem like you know
    what you are doing up there. Or you might watch the tape and be like "WOW I look bored or upset"

    10. Go to shows. Go to shows you wish you were booked on but sadly you were not! Support local comedy,
    be friendly with your co workers truly. Two reasons I mention this, I often get asked "How do I get booked
    on that thing?" Well have you ever gone to that thing just to support? No? Start there! Also, you should
    be celebrating the fact your friends are doing something cool! You can sit and watch local comedy and there
    is always something to learn.
