Vertical_IMDB JPEGLA-based actor/comedian/producer and creator of Feathers and Toast, Mhairi Morrison, was recently quoted in the Smart Movie Making article: “Embrace Digital or Die.” Mhairi shared with smartmoviemaking.com that

Hollywood is starting to resemble its early days again when auteurs such as Charlie Chaplin breezed into town and discovered opportunities in the then new medium of film, now of course the format is digital”

Young creator-makers such as Morrison are already developing ideas and content to pitch in the new digital market, where the primary screens are not at a multiplex or in a TV box, but on tablets and smartphones.

Morrison says she is working on a comedy web series, which is “an alternative cookery show complete with a feather boa and a cup of soup,” that is already attracting interest from studios. To read the entire article click HERE

Praise for Feathers and Toast:

“By herself, Morrison’s brand of comedy is a tour de force, when given the chance to play off other actors the performative aspects of her comedy become impressively reactionary and Morrison’s humor thrives. Because when a woman like Tallulah Grace is asked to share her show with a fan, a fellow mim, a French showgirl and even a cat, we can expect the reaction to be as congenial as Edwina and Patsy (Absolutely Fabulous) facing an alcohol shortage.” Starry Mag

“Mme. Nutty who massacres all her ingredients” Web Series Mag

“It’s all Feathers and Toast with the lovely Tallulah Grace, heartbroken Scottish mime turned web cooking show host, now back with season two, olive branch and spatula in hand, ready to bring hope to (single) ladies with a penchant for dramedy in the kitchen and EVERYWHERE ELSE” Gia on The Move

“…the cinematography and soundtrack give a vintage feel, almost like a 1950s era TV show, which set it apart from other comedy shows. One part Lucille Ball, a pinch of AbFab and of course a soupcon of Julia Child is the recipe for a fun and brilliant series” WebVeeGuide

“Tallulah is delightful, charming and can rock a pair of classic white gloves while cooking” WebSeries Today

“Watching “Feathers and Toast” a cooking show for the modern woman (or man, no gender bias implied) is like learning to cook from Lucy Carmichael” WebSeries Today

“A screwball comedy in the style of Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett” The Daily Dot

“I love the idea of making something different and there is definitely more than enough here for me to sign off on a pilot sitcom were I a man of any power and influence what-so-ever.” Snobby Robot

“With a wide appeal, the charm of the character seeps through and the endless repartee with the rest of the crew, wonderfully breaking the fourth wall adds an underused dimension to the show, especially on the web” Grit Journo

“Headlining the show was actress Mhairi Morrison appearing as her ever-in-a-fuss character Tallulah Grace who hilariously and quite decadently clowned up what would have otherwise been unfortunate trevas between each number” Gia on the Move

“The gags, the grimace, the expressions, the play…these are all indispensable of course in all comedy. But the best actress in a comedy webseries comes with her whole universe and lots of talent deriving from a solid classical training. Best actress in a comedy webseries Mhairi Morrison” Web Series Mag

“Watching Tallulah is not just entertaining but good for the soul…It’s been a long time since anything has impressed me enough to write actually write a review unprompted, but Feathers and Toast has inspired me and I hope she inspires you too” Newsnibbles For an interview with Tallulah please click HERE
