Seriously funny comedian Julie Goldman, a cast member on LOGO’s side-splitting Big Gay Sketch Show, received a MAC Award in 2007 for Major Stand-up Comic–Female and a NewNowNext Award in 2008 for Brink of Fame Comic. She’s co-starring, with writing partner Brandy Howard, in the new web series Julie & Brandy in Your Box Office on Autostraddle.com. Tired of the lack of roles for butch women, she is working on a feature film with Howard called The Nicest Thing. “I love romantic comedies and this would be the first one that I could watch as an audience member and see myself, a butch-ish woman, reflected on the screen,” Goldman says. “This movie is the first of its kind, and we just need to find a groundbreaking visionary to join us to get this movie made.” Hint hint, investors: they hope to start shooting in 2011. -CB
