She’s a multiple Tony, Emmy, Obie, and Drama Desk Award winner, a Broadway icon, a film star and plays the hysterical character Joyce Flynn on the critically acclaimed long-running sitcom Mike & Molly. And she is the author of a brave and riveting memoir PART SWAN, PART GOOSE. She is actress Swoosie Kurtz and she’ll be joining Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday May 6 at 3 pm EDT.
With a name like Swoosie she was destined to lead an interesting life. From her first appearance on The Donna Reed Show to her Tony Award-winning roles in Lanford Wilson’s Fifth of July and John Guare’s The House of Blue Leaves to her much-heralded turns on television series Sisters, Pushing Daisies and Mike & Molly, Swoosie has been embraced by critics and fans alike for her quirky, heartfelt, and always attention-getting performances.
Born to become a stellar success, Swoosie is the only child of Frank and Margo Kurtz. Her father was an Olympic diving medalist and one of the most decorated aviators in American history. Her mother, nearing 100 years old is an accomplished, opinionated, and filled-to-bursting personality.
