"Are the host of the show. Yes how how fun is it to be able to kind of step out of that comfort zone and do something a little bit. Different in and sort of expand your horizons creatively with with crazy girls it so different When i first went into the show. I was a swaying men. Eventually a fulltime spot opened so i was offered that spot so then i became a full time dancers. I work six nights a week. One show a night and about a year and a half into the show My producer came up to me and they were looking to change up the middle act. They had they had a male that did comedy in magic on and things of that nature at the time and he had been in the show for a very long time if something like eight or ten years but they were looking to switch up that whole vibe and put a female that could host the show so that they could keep it all women in the show and he came up to me and he was like a danny. Is your new york italian. You like to talk to people. Or what do you put together fifteen minutes and show me and i was a cashier okay. That sounds great. Well i started doing that. And you realize fifteen minutes versus a long time somebody you know. I've never spoken on stage. I've never spoken that capacity before with an audience. So then i realized what i got myself into what once i commit to something. I have to do it so i was like well. If this is all completely shit then he'll just say nope not you and he'll go a different route and i'll just continue dancing happily. Show 'cause i really enjoy it so fast forward about a month and a half later and he wants to see stuff and now it's changed one eighty since that point but He likes you know the bones of what i had and i kept narrowing things down in tightening things up and now i have a solid ten to twelve minutes that i speak in the middle of the show. And some of it's just conversational. And i talked to different audience members and then some of that is You know jokes i do. Little one liners little stories with a joke backgrounds and things that happened in my life for friends around me. And and i i love it. It's it's it's become a a new hobby of mine so much to the point. Where now i've been dabbling with. I'm doing standup and trying to write my own original great content and then i just had done my first Open mic night here in las vegas. It was a tuesday. It was the first time that i was like okay. I'm gonna do this. There's probably going to be people that we know in town. It's okay i'm just getting there. This is for me and gotta have fun. So i did it. It went really well. And i was looking forward to coming back and doing the next week. There are definitely some things that i needed to improve on that first time and that was on a tuesday and then it was sunday in the world shutout now i just finally like what my big girl pants on instead of. Good talk myself into doing this. Another world shutdown. Give me lots of time to work on things and think about as well. I have to say hats off to you. And i admire you in a big way for taking the step out of your comfort zone and trying something. Like stand up comedy. I've i've gotten to know a few stand up comedians and spent time with them and and and it never ceases to amaze me how easy they make it look and it's not easy to do by any stretch of the imagination and as you said fifteen minutes that is forever are especially now that i know you know you know i can. I can get on stage. And i can talk to people and i can stretch that out for some time but if you're You know perfecting the craft of comedy in your following that you know there should be a laugh or joke. Every fifteen seconds. Fifteen seconds divided by fifteen minutes of the law of jokes a lot and god forbid something falls flat and there is no fifty sweating right now just thinking about but it's also what makes it so much fun to that's what gets my adrenaline going. I love a good you know adrenaline rush. Xactly exactly i wanna talk about covid and the pandemic and all of that. Now that's affected you guys it it. It kills me to see show shutdown and my friends people that i consider family that i see more often than i see my real family. I used to see more often than i see my real family going through all of this. But it's amazing. How so many of you guys have managed keep busy throughout the pandemic and stay in front of an audience even if it's just a virtual audience You've managed to do that in some great ways and some really interesting ways folks. That may not know. You're engaged to murray the magician. Had on the podcast yes. Murray's an awesome guy and and was so much fun to talk to and you guys have kept so busy through this doing so many different things we really have. It's been a great time. You know and marina before coded were both so busy all the time you know doing my show and him doing his and then he had just got a guest spot physician and another show down the strip so now he was doing two shows and You know six nights a week and and even on our days off. Sometimes we'd be picking up gigs or or different jobs here there so we never had a whole lot of time to do the things that you know people that work. Maybe a normal schedule and have like a a friday night until monday morning off to go do a weekend trip and things of that nature. So we've gotten to see family members. We got to go up to canada for the first time and see where he grew up. He got to show me that and hang out with mom saw job and then we got to go. Upstate new york and see my parents and i got to show him around where i grew up. All my favorite spots. And now where. I was wonder woman and all sorts of fun. You know little day trips and And then we also started landscaping business called dirt dreams landscaping and. It's really taken off. I mean we started just putting some flyers out word of mouth and and had a couple big jaws. we'd go and and reduce somebody's backyard. That might take us two to three days. And so those are a little bit more sporadic but now we have received a couple. Hoa contracts and we're doing like a dozen houses a week where we're going out and trimming bushes and trees in doing yard cleanups and then you we get the couple once or twice a week. We get one of the big projects to do something super like you know transform. Somebody's backyard which is also one of our favorite Projects to do. Because we're so creative that you get to design this new yard for you know for somebody to enjoy their space. So that's been great. And i also do massage therapy so and i do that out of my home and and i'm still taking clients as long as everybody is. You know everybody's falling the covert rules So that keeps me busy and marines back to work which is awesome. He's like one of the only shows on a strip that's actually performing And you know so. We're still keeping busy but we've enjoyed this time to have a more experiences time together and it's really been great for us. I guess somebody told me the other day like yep cove it at either tears apart or builds up a relationship and we got engaged so ours is a buildup situation. That's so awesome. And i love hearing the the positive stories that are coming out of this. You're not the first person i've talked to. Who said you know what it's been kind of nice to be able to take this step away and focus on some passion projects that we haven't been able to work on for the last x. number of years because we've been doing a headlining show on the strip seven nights a week and just going crazy out of our minds busy and i think it's really cool that you guys have have stepped out and done something so different from entertainment for yourself and murrieta to do something like that. I think is is really really cool. He's so good at it too. I mean Between between the two of us we own three houses and he did his front and backyard of both houses that he owns he built a fireplace. He built a little mini. Putt putt on the side of the house. And then on the house. That i own a couple years ago. This is before he even have the idea like. Hey i think we should start a because i think we should do that You know during kobe. The he's doing stuff for years and so we redid the front yard of the house that i own and then during the pandemic when we got to go visit my siblings We redid her little patio back area and put in some fake grass. And so we've just been finding ourselves to keep busy. In general during the pandemic is saying. Oh look do you need your backyard. Something you buy the supplies. We'll come and redesigned for you and then we realized hey we should probably Maybe make us into a business while Oh yeah we don't have jobs so yeah it's been awesome. Speaking of getting back out and performing one of the best parts about going to a vegas show was the intimacy of it. And you're in this room and you're not very far from the performance you know you can see them clearly and they can see you clearly. And you're you're in there tight with a bunch of strangers and just really enjoying a show As things start to open up and they opened up with restrictions how do you see this effecting ah show for example. Like crazy girls. How is this going to affect the the audience experienced the The performer experience. What what do you foresee as as the big changes. I guess the real answer is we won't know until we get there. But i think without a doubt in my mind that first of all i don't think that entertainment will go anywhere because entertainment is what it's people's escape. It's what makes people smile at. You know it's it's what they look forward to doing in their free time to. You know to lift their spirits. So i think that there's always going to be a need and want for entertainment. I think the capacity of what is going to do well as is definitely going to change once the world comes back. i think For our show crazy girls like ratio is well because they're smaller shows And they have less overhead and cheaper ticket prices comparative seeing some big production show like a cirque show. I think that they're going to thrive. I think that people are going to appreciate shows more. And because of that they'll be more selective and and we'll have better audiences and People that really want to be there and that need it. And i think that crazy girls is going to really thrive when we're able to open back up and get back to doing what we're love. Hopefully that's sooner rather than later. Yeah hopefully sooner than later. you know. we're hoping by the spring. You know there's talk it could be next week but that probably be the case Just because of where the pandemic said and you know where the world's out with how many vaccines have been released in south but there is improvement. There is the light at the end of the tunnel and I know it will definitely happen. It's just a matter of time and you know our our state right now. Still under some fairly strict restrictions our state guidelines just due to trying to keep everybody healthy but as time goes on and there's more vaccines and the numbers drop more more and the likeliness of us coming back. You know hopefully sooner than later and if people wanna keep up with you on social media. You're quite active particularly on instagram.
