Additional Resume Info (submitted by page owner via IMDb Resume)
- * Emmy Award winner and recently introduced in the please-God-recurring role of Nells Mom, Mrs. Jones on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Barbara Keegan made her Chicago stage debut at age 3, in a duet with her comedy godfather, first mentor and jester spirit-guide for all time Danny Kaye. Since that storybook start, shes been entertaining distinguished, discerning, and quite possibly disturbed audiences from Miami to Montreal, from Los Angeles to New York, from San Diego to Singapore. (Shes still jet-lagged from that last one
) Her screen appearances include films from CADDYSHACK to THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, her own PBS series THE HANDY MAAM, scores of gueststarring gigs, and festival-winning indies such as Deborah Geffners GUITAR LESSONS, Minh Collins BOTTOM FEEDERS, Marmo/Modzlinskis STAGE 4, and seven roles in Robert Romeos full-length psychological thriller BOILERPLATE.
Regional, dinner theatre (yeah, remember THOSE?) and Off- (sometimes way WAY Off-) Broadway stage turns have included playing daughters (and sometimes sons) of luminaries from Maureen OSullivan (BAREFOOT IN THE PARK) to Abe Vigoda (NEVER TOO LATE), as well as original cast credit in four or five Samuel French-published scripts. Los Angeles theater audiences have seen Keegan in ten roles in the Pasadena Playhouses award-winning JOINED AT THE HEAD, five roles in the five year run of BILL W. AND DR. BOB at Theatre 68, well-known as well as original musicals from THE FANTASTICKS to the country-western TANGLIN HEARTS to the politically-themed CAMPAIGN to the borscht-belt MAMALEH!, and the occasional beloved classic such as the blarney-speaking Nurse in ROMEO AND JULIET for Merry War Theatre Group. Shes thrilled beyond words to be working once again with her favorite living playwright, Jon Courie, having first had that pleasure a couple of years ago on his CARAPACE ISLE in its West coast premiere, as well as last years Hollywood Fringe Festival favorite JENNIFER ANISTON STOLE MY LIFE, which, she is more than honored to note, Mr. Courie wrote specifically with her in mind.
A founder of the East-coast improv troupe THE PUBLIC TRUST, as well as its TYA arm THE LOLLIPOP THEATRE FOR CHILDREN, Barbaras traded wit in live sketch comedy with Fred Willard, and raised money for worthy organizations co-starring in benefits with legends such as Shelley Berman, Robert Mandan, Bernie West, Sammy Shore, Marion Ross and Edward Asner, while making a decent living in her day job starring in hundreds of commercials and infomercials worldwide. A self-taught music prodigy, playing piano since eighteen months of age, Ms. Keegan was keyboardist/vocalist for femme rockers THE PICKUPS, and has worked numerous live gigs and recording sessions for THE NAKED APES, THIS SIDE UP, South American pop star SANTIAGO, and more recently THE VAN DYKE BROS BAND starring her husband Tom Van Dyke. For the record, shes never actually performed as a mermaid in Weeki Wachee, but has worn the crown of Miss Miami Beach, and squeezed into that very snug Starfleet uniform as a half-human, half-Vulcan in J.J. Abrams STAR TREK. Shes been immortalized as Cate Blanchetts favorite photodouble evil twin, and has shared a soundstage hotel room with a Mr. B. Pitt (and, yes, thats exactly who you think it is, and yes, hes every bit as nice as he seems!). Just for fun, ask her to mimic anyone from Jean Hagen as Lina Lamont (SINGIN IN THE RAIN) to Patrick Stewart as Capt. Jean Luc Picard (STAR TREK TNG)
She also does a spot-on tribute to Davy Jones singing DAYDREAM BELIEVER. On stage, and come to think of it, off stage as well, Barbaras been compared to Peter Sellers, Peter Tork, Pee Wee Herman, Eddie Izzard, Groucho AND Harpo Marx, Shirley MacLaine (yeah, we threw her in just to have a female in the mix)
and Hamlet. HAMLET. Shes decided to take it as a compliment.
