Biography

Julie Brown is an original: a daffy West Coast Judy Holliday; a comedienne who has suffered many roadblocks in her rise to fame. Born and raised in California's San Fernando Valley, Brown's screen persona encapsulates all the dizzy selfishness and amorality of the "valley girl". Brown got her training in San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater, where she met future collaborators Charlie Coffey and Terrence McNally (the latter who briefly became her husband should not be confused with the playwright of the same name). Originally a stand-up comic ("It's a mean atmosphere. Comedians, to me, look very needy"), Brown parlayed her talent into a pop career as an MTV hostess and released two hilarious albums of original music: "Goddess in Progress" and "Trapped in the Body of a White Girl".

Bonus Trivia

Not to be confused with 'Downtown' Julie Brown, former MTV veejay and TV host.

.

"My poor husband, when they find out he's married to me, they assume we must live like psychos, having cocaine with Jack Nicholson. But I just want to be in my house with my baby and husband, going to movies, walking my baby in the park. In my real life, I'm much straighter. It's really cool to be able to exorcise all of your demons in your work." --Julie Brown in USA Today, August 18, 1994
