Meet Debbie Praver

Debbie Praver has been an invited guest performer at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival, shared the stage with Kathy Griffin in Dennis Hensley's "Screening Party" and also appears in the movie "screening party". She is the producer and headliner of "Armed With Laughter: Soul (dier) Boot Camp", tours with Armed Forces Entertainment, performs regularly at The Improv at Harrahs Las Vegas, headlines the show "An Evening of Sarcasm and Stand Up" in Los Angeles and is the host of the "I Know, Right??"

Debbie honed her writing skills with Desperate Housewives Creator Marc Cherry and Desperate Housewives Co-executive Producers Joey Murphy and John Pardee. The refinement of her stand up act happened as she studied with the fabulously talented yet brutally honest Improv owner Mark Lonow. She has been published in Los Angeles' Atomica magazine, has been a fill in sidekick for Dennis Hensley on his Sirius Out Q radio show, makes appearances on paper in Dennis Hensley's "Misadventures in the 213" and Del Shore's novel "Sordid Lives." Her impatience combined with her sarcastic wit made stand up comedy her only career option.

Praver spent too many years in Disney costumes including Minnie Mouse, Pinocchio, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, the March Hare (who???............the hare is in Alice in Wonderland), and in a pinch she crouched down to do Donald Duck in a parade.

After escaping from Mouschwitz she toured as a Dance Leader for the media tour of the Broadway musical "Footloose", choreographed many fitness videos (those include Bob Harper's "Inside Out Method", Denise Austin's "Pilates Matwork", and George Forman's "walk it off with George"), and was the technical choreographer for "the Method workout" series for Fit TV.

Debbie received her BS in Physical Education/Exercise Physiology from Cal State University at Long Beach and has multiple group fitness certifications. She can be found teaching all sorts of fitness classes around Los Angeles.
