Reel Romance™ & Shark Tank™ by Dr. Sue

 

What does Reel Romance™ have in common with Shark Tank™? 

What do Reel Romance and Shark Tank have in common? Both shows are Empowering Entertainment with Mentors. 

Both shows use Social Media: Facebook, Blog, Twitter, Linked In. Both shows use Television and/or Radio.  You’re probably familiar with Shark Tank™ .  

Reel Romance™  has JCT Radio/TV & Multimedia.

Both shows have ongoing personalities who act as mentors. 

Shark Tank™ has the sharks.

Sharks are successful entrepreneurs.

They might help you – but watch out!

They have big appetites and sharp teeth!

 

 

 

Reel Romance has Dr. Sue (Susan Horowitz, Ph.D.):  Author/Interviewer of best-selling book “Queens of Comedy” based on her interviews with comedy legends/entrepreneurs like Lucille Ball, Joan Rivers, etc., Professor/Mentor at City University of New York;  Award-Winning Writer of “Read With Me” Children’s Book of the Month Club Series, and Comedies, like “Reel Romance with a Twist!” – world premiere at the prestigious New York New Works Theatre Festival in the heart of Broadway! 

Reel Romance™ and Shark Tankappeal to people’s basic aspirations: love and money!

How are we different?

Shark Tank™ is a big shark (lots of money, media support, etc.) swimming in a sea of greed. 

Reel Romance™ is a happy olive with a heart toothpick, swimming in a sea of love. (Actually, it’s a Reel Romance cocktail or mock-tail (with or without alcohol).

Are you asking yourself: What’s In It For Me? (We’re all tuned to station WIIFM) Reel Romance™ cocktail comes with a twist! The unexpected answer to your questions!  

Post questions about your relationships (romantic & otherwise) and aspirations.

A Romantic Comedy by Susan “Dr. Sue” Horowitz

Co-Starring: Susan Horowitz and Gorman John Ruggiero

Audience Comments: 

“Your show was very impressive! You are terrific! I see it as a television series” (Pat McGuinn, Agent/Producer)

“Wonderful! This has such promise! I can see them really falling in love and the audience going nuts! You were adorable!”  (Bobbie Horowitz, Producer/Writer NYC/London)

“It was so touching…I cried.” (Carolina Parker, Student BMCC/CUNY)

“My main influences are Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, and Goldie Hawn.  I interviewed Ball and Burnett for my book Queens of Comedy.

Dr. Sue Sings Funny, Diversity Election Song!

Dr. Sue Horowitz sings her original, funny diversity song “Life Is Just a Bowl of Gravy” A Turkey meets a Pilgrim who invites her for dinner!

Please Like, Share & Subscribe to my YouTube Channel! Scroll Down for Lyric.

 

LIFE IS JUST A BOWL OF GRAVY ©Susan Horowitz
This is a tale of a turkey bird who went to a turkey trot
When anyone asked her “Will you dance?” She answered “I will not.
I’ll only dance with a gentleman who makes our country great
If he’s got money, I’ll call him my honey, and he will be my date.”
Life is just a bowl of gravy – it’s saucy and surprising – and very appetizing!

Suddenly somebody stepped on in who came from Pilgrim stock
He said, “I’ll be candid, I have just landed nearby on Plymouth Rock
I got money and power, I sail the Mayflower and you look mighty fine
Please do not stall, be my butterball, and come with me to dine.”
Life is just a bowl of gravy – it’s saucy and surprising – and very appetizing!

They went to a fabulous restaurant, she was his dinner date
When they got there, the table was bare except for an empty plate
The rest of the story is terribly gory – a pilgrim’s fairy tale
You may not get here by the Mayflower dear,
But we’re in the same boat – so protest and vote
And dance at our own turkey ball!
Life is just a bowl of gravy – it’s saucy and surprising – and very appetizing!

Hope you enjoy my song! Please contact me for Bookings as Speaker or Entertainer – Enjoy my Book “Queens of Comedy” and CD “For Heroes and Lovers”

“My Significant Other Is Plants!”

Hope you enjoy my song! Please contact me for Bookings as Motivational Speaker or Entertainer – Enjoy my Book “Queens of Comedy” and CD “For Heroes and Lovers”

My Significant Other is Plants    Words and Music by Susan Horowitz

Now I hate to complain, but I’m feeling depressed

Though I meet loads of guys who are very well-dressed

My cabaret lifestyle is gay, but there’s one little thing I must say…

 

My significant other is plants

Certainly not anyone in pants

I’m annoyed ‘cause my life is devoid of romance

My significant other is plants.

 

I’m surrounded by men who are loaded with class

Their shirts match their ties and a fabulous ass – oops! I mean glasses

I think I am catching their eye

They look past at a good-looking guy…

 

My significant other is plants

Certainly not anyone in pants

It’s not dogs, it’s not cats, it’s not goldfish or ants

My significant other is plants.

 

A handsome producer –at last we’re alone

I’m on my bed; he’s on my phone

I think he is feeling the heat, though he never suggests that we meet…

 

My significant other is plants

Certainly not anyone in pants

Potatoes and carrots don’t do dirty dancing

I’m stuck on the vegetable aisle of romancing

It sure ain’t my druthers, these guys act like brothers

My significant other is plants!

Rita Moreno at APAP 2016 by Susan “Dr. Sue” Horowitz

Rita Moreno

Rita Moreno at APAP

“Alive and Kicking!” could be a theme of the APAP (Association of Performing Arts Presenters) conference and its closing speaker: Rita Moreno, 84 year-old multi-award winning performer (including the Oscar for her role “Anita” in the film “West Side Story”).

APAP’s event features presenters from Broadway and far beyond (think global!) – industry mentors, and mentees – like the finalists of the Wallace Foundation’s “Five Minutes to Shine” who won a conference  package with travel.

Attendees include over 3,600 APAP members and professionals who come for networking, support, development, and great entertainment, and is accessible via live-streaming.

Ms. Moreno will be awarded Kennedy Center Honors, capping off a career that amazingly includes Tony, Emmy, Grammy, and Oscar awards. She is one of a handful of performers to win all four – and the only Latina.

Ms. Moreno spoke about her life journey from childhood poverty in Puerto Rico and the Bronx to Hollywood/Broadway legend. Her current high-kicking courage, quick wit, compassion, and poignant honesty inspires her audience and readers of her recent book “Rita Moreno: A Memoir” to go for their dreams.

Rita Moreno & Dr. Sue

Rita Moreno & Dr. Sue

Dreams and determination helped Rita survive bullies and bigots in the ghetto and gilded Hollywood mansions. Her mom took her for dance lessons, and when she was performing in Macy’s toy department, she was discovered by a talent scout for MGM, who set up an appointment with Louis B. Mayer. She showed up looking like a Latin Elizabeth Taylor (with a waist-cincher and “feminine enhancements”). Mayer promptly signed her to a seven-year contract. As a contract player, Rita was invited to Hollywood parties – loaded with lecherous producers. She was also assigned a series of dark-skinned stereotypical roles: the Polynesian/American Indian/Mexican mistress of a white man – which she played with the same one-size-fits-all vaguely Latin accent (no one noticed).

Moreno also had some amazing opportunities, including “Singing in the Rain” (with Gene Kelly) “Desiree”  (with Marlon Brando).  The second encounter ignited a scorching  eight-year affair that left Rita burned – but never killed her innate optimism – or her ability to do the work she loves and fall in love with “a great guy” – a nice Jewish doctor and her husband of  forty-six years  It’s all in her book “Rita Moreno: A Memoir” – which sold out at the conference raising $1000 for The Food Bank, but is still available in stores and online.

“The Turkey Trot”

It’s an a mash-up of Thanksgiving, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.

A turkey attends a ball hoping to meet a prince with buckles on his shoes.

She meets a pilgrim who invites her on a dinner date….

Moral: be careful about making romantic choices based on shoes.

My Son The Waiter, a Jewish Tragedy

My Son The Waiter Photo: Michael Appleton

My Son The Waiter
Photo: Michael Appleton

Brad Zimmerman, fiercely funny comic, actor and under-achieving Jewish son, self-skewers his three decades as a New York waiter in his bio-show at the Triad Theatre, 158 West 72nd Street, NYC. At 61, Zimmerman, who opened for Joan Rivers and George Carlin, is a show-business late-bloomer – but that’s okay. He brings a lifetime of incisive commentary to the table– plus plenty of comic patter, poignant memories, and Borscht Belt jokes. His customers may have waited to be served, but you don’t have to. You can catch Zimmerman’s bittersweet comic feast at the Triad till the end of the year (and dine downstairs at Seven’s Turkish Grill! – 158 W 72nd Street, NYC)
