here at KKB, we support anyone who supports the red beanie industry.
Clare O’Kane is a San Francisco based actress and comedian who has/can be seen in/on the stage, film, and internet. We met when we were cheeky youths through an equally talented mutual companion, which led to an emotional roller coaster of a social media frenzy, drama-filled facebook friendship. She was kind enough to answer a few questions for us:
We’ve actually met before, I dunno if you remember. Since then you’ve done dozens of sets and open mics, locally and internationally. Since then, I’ve made this weird little wordpress. Is it time for a collabo? (industry term for collaborate.)
Yes, of course I remember! You were the beautiful, busty blonde with the green cardigan at the airport. I helped you with your luggage and never saw you again…and if by collabo you mean create a new life I think I’m ready, no matter what they say.
How often do you see someone more successful than yourself and just say “well I know I’m better than them?”
Ugh, not often ENOUGH (almost never)!
You’re west-coast based, but have made trips to NY, Austin, and even Scotland, where would you like to perform that you haven’t? (besides your high school alma mater of course.)
Oh brudda, well, I would love to just venture out into the middle of Nowhere, U.S.A. and see what they think of me and my hair. I’m planning an unrealistic trip to London next year which I am very excited about! That’s where Clive Owen is!!! Oh and I’ll be in Killadelphia, Pistolvania this summer which I’m VERY excited about (if the money’s right)!
What’s next for Clare O’ Kane? (besides the hit MTV show NEXT.)
Well, today I need to sell my other laptop because I’m mad broke and I need money to get to Portland tomorrow. Then, in two days I’ll be opening up for comedian Dave Hill which I’m very excited about. I have already decided to go to that weird karaoke strip club in Portland while I’m there, as well as eat artisan tacos and stuff like that. THEN, I’ll be in Los Angeles, Hollywood, California, U.S.A. soaking up the rays and working on my glutes. THEN, I’m gunna nap.
Niles or Frasier Crane?
Niles and that fuckin dog.
Thoughts on froyo?
Most famous person you’ve met; what did you say to them? and what do you wish you said to them?
I met Adam Scott recently and I told him he played a “good dick” in that one movie that’s on Netflix right now. I WISH I had said, “Eyy let’s get outta here and paint this town red also let’s get married.” all while doing the Fonzie pose (with the thumbs).
I checked out your art. It looks like the ramblings of a young and horny Daniel Johnston mixed with preliminary Beavis and Butthead sketches. Take that as you will. Any interest in designing a logo for kittykatbooty?
First of all, THANK YOU. Second of all, of course I would design a logo for y’all! How do you feel about it just being, like, the Starbucks logo, but with bigger boobs?
Your IMDB page lists you as starring in “Bloodrape,” and as a TV researcher for “An Audience with Elton John.” Did one of those projects lead to the other?
All I can say is that I have a wonderful agent (Thank you Robert).
What comes to mind when you hear the name “Kyle Harris?”
(this is what I found when I googled Kyle Harris)
Any advice for the so-called “up and comers?” (i.e. Kyle.)
Work hard, eat well, 420, 69, don’t be bitter, have fun, be nice to Adam Scott, do what you wanna do and don’t let anybody get you down or throw stuff at you.
I hope this interview saves someones life someday.
