Cindy is a menopausal, PTA mom who is happily pursuing stand-up because... she can't do porn forever! A seasoned performer (35+ years... and no, none of it porn), Cindy is a sought-after actor/comedienne/teacher throughout the Los Angeles area.
A veteran of stage (musical comedies are her fave), improvisational/murder mystery dinner theatre, television, commercials, voice-over, and two current web-series, Cindy has performed her (clean) stand-up at The Comedy Store and is a regular at Flappers (contest winner, stand-up and emcee.) She was also a semi-finalist in last year's America's Got Talent with her stand-up.
In between hot flashes, Cindy (a former Groundlings student) is also a popular improv teacher for kids at StarLight Productions. She also does private coaching and conducts comedy workshops for middle and high schoolers.
A writer, singer, and dancer... she's Erma Bombeck meets Weird Al! She's FUN, FIFTY, and FLAB-ULOUS... she's a cougar with issues... she's Cindy Shields!
