I loved the violin! Very funny part. Great job getting this far in the competition and I wish you well in the next stage. Dear Stella good luck to the team and here's hoping we see you on the billboard tomorrow night! Congratulations on a job well done so far.
I like the characters and the P.O.V is real interesting. Gotta check it out!
Great Work! Funny concept and definitely lots of potential! Keep up the great work:) Very Creative!
This did make me laugh. The character of the agent is still rather one dimensional, but I think with the opportunity to develop her further she could deepen in humour and personality. Hoping that you will rise through the ranks to the higher rounds and get the chance to flesh it out. Dear Stella! :)
I thoroughly enjoyed this. sometimes i sit on my couch hoping to find that perfect video on the internet and,well, you darn near cut the cut on that one. you make my cushions softer, my teeth whiter, my cheesies cheesier, and my tiles tiles. you are a gift to us all. you rock my world. dont be anybody but yourself. keep on keeping on.
Dear Stella, I think you guys are awesome and making some really great vids. Best of luck this weekend and I hope you guys knock the Flip It mission out of the park! Rock on!
Love the commitment to your craft that these videos show - congratulations to getting to Top 55 - that is such an incredible achievement - best of luck as you keep up the funny work!
I've been drawn to this project from the beginning. There's lots of charisma from this performer and I like the idea. Not sure if I could get on board with this idea over the long term though. I've just not seen the depth of writing that I would need to tune in over the long term. Is there more? Please? A wonderful personality can only carry me so far.
This is not for me but there is for sure an audience for this. Votings almost up so it's getting intense, good luck
I did find the clip very funny and I can see potential in the concept. Wondering if future comedy will come from situations arising from lousy audition opportunities set up by a bad agent as illustrated, or will you branch out some. Good luck!
Love that you went out with Jian Ghomeshi, Smoked Crack with Rob Ford, and rented from Mike Duffy! Very funny! Good video. Love the agent Character. Really like this. You are in my top 15. Good luck.
Well the final hours of the vote to get to the next level are approaching now so it is up to the voters now to get you there. Best wishes to you for success and nice work on getting through to the top 55 for all those able who were able to get that far.
Way to go on your comedy coup efforts to date. You have succeeded in making it to the top 55 and that is something to be proud of. Already the competition is getting tough as the quality of the competitors gets refined. Best wishes for making it to the next level.
Congrats on the top 55! Likeable cast. good luck to this gang. I'm interested in seeing more.
Good luck to you this week! Lots of tough competition out there. May the best teams win. Congrats on making it to the top 55 and good luck again in the top 15!
Stella is a talented actress, no doubt about that! I hope to learn more about what you would feature on a comedy show ( aside from Canadian content references, which are nice!), so I guess I will keep watching. Best of luck, hope to see you there in the next round!
If you are receiving this comment then you are one of my top 15 favorites in this comedycoup.cbc.ca contest and you are congratulated for making the top 55 and doing a really good job on all the missions to date. That has been a lot of work so congratulations on your efforts!

This show has great comedy potential; I really like the new spin you are putting on established TV tropes and am looking forward to what more you can come up with!
the funniest line was the last one. not as impressed with the agent character.
Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good luck on making it to the Top 15!! You're gorgeous! A modeling career for you if this show doesn't work? :D
i appreciate your dedication joanna, as displayed in the previous comment. dont let this contest stop you. you are a great writer and at the end of the day, great writing is great writing. this material will go somewhere. dont be discouraged. good luck with whatever comes.
So many terrific comments today!…the day before the big 40 team cut! I really appreciate all of you who believe in this show. I hope it moves forward in this contest, but even if it doesn't THIS SHOW WILL BE MADE. Thank you all so much for your support!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a good concept that you have delivered in an pretty fair way. I am hoping to see more of this in the future and I am looking forward to seeing how this develops. Good luck moving on in Comedy Coup.
i love the Canadian Brooklyn accent. this lady is very talented. Having an agent is appealing to all the people supporting this comedy coup competition. good luck advancing.
A lot of good ideas, but I'm not sold on the delivery, or the stakes, yet. But I'm watching to see what you do with this. Cute diegetic violin
funny, attractive - might fill the hole left by 30 rock
Hahaha I love the violin!
I like this show. Good concept and definitely funny. The agent has great lines and really delivers. Good luck going forward.
lots of references to 30 rock on comedy coup but thats for a good reason. great concept and this could be great with some cash and high level production help
The Agent is adorable, The Boston accent is catchy. Dear Stella will be more about the agent's life than Stella's. lets hope not, Stella is attractive and semi-serious.
Take the costuming required for all the acting job's her agent gives her...that will be hilarious too see Stella dressing up.
Then there is the background daughter , is she just itchen to fiddle ?
Potential for funny lady awards. Like Like
Its tough being an actress in Canada. I admire your passion and I wish you the best in your future endeavors. This is a weird show to follow though. Cool sell sheet none the less
this is a weird contest to be in too!
What I think is on sale here more than anything else is a good concept. I like the mother daughter dynamic and what kind of a show this could be with a solid development team behind it. I also feel like I've never seen a Hollywood Mom TV show especially not in Canada, keep on keepin' on, Dear Stella.
It's nice to see another Nova Scotian killin it on here. I hope this takes you into the top 15 and beyond. Well done in this contest so far, and I hope you keep it up.
I like your profile pic…I wrote a play about you once!
How is this a show? It feels extremely narcissistic. Your sell sheet looks cool but i cant see this being a series on cbc. Maybe a good theatre production but not tv material. Wish you the best.
You caught me! Unlike most people in the entertainment industry I am extremely narcissistic. I wish I was more down to earth like Beyonce.
This looks like a lot of fun! I wasn't keen on some of the camera work here, but I love the age bracket of the main character, and I chuckled a lot. I hope you stick with this idea.
I loved the comments at the end regarding Canadian News events. For me that was the best part. Lots of energy and creativity going into this project. Keep it up! It could be an interesting series.
OH GOD!! Can you imagine actually having this agent!? Well done guys, cringing while laughing
Love the energy in your video, and congratulations on making the top 55. Lots of name dropping and sex overtones with the agent angle but I'll have to go back and watch more as I seem to be like Renee and am lost as to what Stella is about.
being an agent seems like a good job except you have to deal with actors all day, and how do you know when they are telling the truth or acting? great video.
I had a bit of trouble connecting to this video. Some funny moments, but I'm not sure I would be in for a whole series.
Oh well…if you can't watch the whole series I am afraid I can't let you watch at all. Good luck with your commitment issues.
Didn't believe the hype!
You are very media savvy. You are right I don't know any of those Canadian newsmakers. I was lying to try to get ahead. I promise to be more honest while hyping in the future.
Dear Stella... i like what you're doing here! your sell sheet looks awesom eand your video was, once again, funny. i am a bit concerned that it is a little bit of a niche audience/demographic but you know what my old granddaddy used to say to me he would sitme on his lap and he would say j bear dont matta what da haterz tell yew at da end of da day funny is funny and in case you were wondering no my granddaddy wasnt jamaican he was scottish
congratulations on making it to the top 55! Nude selifes- Ha! There are some great one liners here. I really also enjoyed your sell sheet. Are those top ten promises? Good luck on making it to the top 15!
I really don't know what you are trying to do with this video exactly, although I found it interesting and watchable. I just think that maybe you missed what some of what the challenge was? What's your angle here? Not enough info.
I was trying to make cookies with this video but I guess that's not how you make cookies.
I'm calling it. This one is going to win!
Thanks for the video and concept. Interesting and would like to see more. Bring the entertainment, acting and characters each week and I'll be waiting. Good luck in making it to the next round.
Another great entry, jam packed with jokes and one liners. Once again some of the best stuff on here is from the maritime.
You doing a wonderful job at it my love and keep it up! Nan loves everything your doing! Big hugs and kisses from Newfoundland! Dis is a laugh out loud riot! I was slapping me knees in de fits laughing.
I love you too Nan!
I enjoyed your week5 sheet sell it made me chuckle to say the least and you did a fine job of playing both parts.
I think that this project is improving each week. Keep it up, and good luck to you! Interesting to see an all female show, I don't think I've seen another one like that yet.
Good luck. You have worked very hard and comedy coup has a big debt to pay to all the teams that participated.
Definitely some good work here, but it doesn't feel quite complete to me as a concept. Good luck though, I know everyone worked hard to make it this far
Definitely some good words in your comment here. Hope you feel complete soon!
I get the sense that you need a new agent. Perhaps if you get this show made you can fire her and get someone better. Good luck on your success in this competition, as you could use the money for your new agent.
Agent Kathy is an awesome agent! but I appreciate your naivety to think that actors in Canada have enough power to "fire" agents….I'm sure they'd be super worried about missing out on all that money from Hollywood blockbusters all the actors in Canada is are starring in all the time. Good luck coping with reality !
Dear Stella, you did a good job in your video except it is not my style of show. Keep up the good work though; there has to be something for everybody in this world. Best of luck for you and your team.
skinny jeans are in and I don't think they're my style but I can't seem to make them go away!
Congratulations for making the Top 55. I'm not thoroughly sold on your project concept as I feel like I have seen this character depicted before. Liked the Canadian name references though. Good luck with it !
Lotta people want to be sold. How much does everyone cost?
Great job for such limited resources. I like watching the actress in both roles, shows her versatility well. Cibgratulations on making the too 55. This was funny but I'm not sure if it's my cup if tea. Best of luck. Cheers
Lotta tea drinkers losing their tea on the Comedy Coup site. Perhaps a show about tea would suit them.
Way to be relevant in your video. the ghomeshi is right in line with everything thats going on. my only criticism is that he's accused of being an abusive dominant in his relationships and probably really hurt some people. not super funny.
I agree... will think before I joke again.
I like the characters but I am not sold on the project. I know that all this is made in free time besides besides your jobs and it's a lot of work. I commend you for all that hard work. It is not my time of show, but there must be something for everyone out there.
I'm curious what is your "time" of show? Is it a show about the time of day. It is 11:31 now. I agree though that there is a time for everything and so do the mamas and the papas - I think that was them.
Go Joanne. Much admiration for you getting this far (and maybe further) with way less resources than so many other projects. Gotta see one Nova Scotia project in the final 15.
Nice job, I like the self deprecating style of your submissions. This vid gave me a better idea of what you're going for with Dear Stella, so nice work and best of luck this weekend ! Joe - Fruit Farm :-)
If you need help finding that Newfoundland accent we can hook you up! ;)
Best of luck this weekend! :)
Darcy - WingMom.ca
Very timely... not sure about your dating choices.
This already feels like a CBC show. The style, sense of humour and editing. The agent character is pretty great.
Each one of these videos seems to be even funnier than the last! Love them all!!!
Awesome! Very funny!
i agree with victoria, this was a nice sell sheet. I think that this project has a shot for the top 15. best of luck!
Another funny video and more of the hilarity that Dear Stella can bring to television. Congratulations on representing for East Coast Comedy and for funny women everywhere! Looking forward to the future of Dear Stella!
Really cool sell sheet-so creative. I liked this week's video a lot. What a charming performer. Every actor out there can sympathize with the love/hate need for an agent. Very funny!
good job this week. this video was well done just like your other weeks videos. I really like the depths of the character and keep on working on perfecting your idea! love it!
You have a wonderful sense of humour and I really like the way you present the "agents" quick-fire solutions to getting gigs and generating PR. A little more insight into all the characters would have been helpful in the clip, but all in all, I got a really good vibe from you promo. Lookiong forward to seeing more.
What a great concept. The writing is super funny and the audience can really relate. Good luck making it into the top fifteen. I can definitely see this as a weekly sit-com.
I really like you and your idea! it is very relatable to woman and it is super funny. You are great in front of the camera and I want to keep watching you. Good luck!!!
LOL. Great to see you are in the top 55. Congratulations. Loving the agent; "Dreams are stuff that dreams are made of." Daughter with Violin was a great touch both in the kitchen and between zings. Hope to see more. Keep it coming.
I am in absolute hysterics here. The one liners are fabulous and the punch line audio splashes give it this whole surreal 70's style comedy that really ties it all together. The production quality is top notch all the way.
Strangely, I have the same blonde wig. I could be one of your groupies at the convention.
What a great concept! Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good luck on making it to the Top 15!!
I loved the audition possibilities at the beginning! The writing is super funny, and this is such a great concept! Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good luck making it to the Top 15!
You did a nice job on your sell sheet package, and you are just a Darling! I still have a questions as to what the show may entail, but am impressed with what you're presenting thus far! Good luck in making it to the final 15 teams Stella!
You should write all the comments on this whole website. Thank you! You are very sweet!
I really like the sell sheet and vid. Love the editing, love the acting. Hope to see you in the top 15. We need more east coasters in the finale!!!!
I found the ending comments very clever and in line with this week's task of hype. Also the violin tie in is clever. The script is funny here but the acting skills of the agent could use some practise.
Don't worry…she is so fired!!!…I am going to get someone else to play her now. Thanks for pointing that out.
The audition possibilities were hilarious! Loved the cracks at the end, nice gag. The only thing is I'm not sure I totally get what the show is about from this video, granted I haven't seen the earlier videos, this is the first time I've noticed this show but the video does make me want to see more :)
Well the terrific thing is that you can!!! Click now on videos #1, #2 and #3! and if you need anything else, give me a call!
This was a good video, but I'm not sure if this is the show for me. But you're funny. I wish you luck in this next Top 15 round!
Thanks for saying that Dear Stella…is good and funny!!!!!!!!!!!!
I understand your comment, sometimes you find that dress that fits amazing and looks great on you but you're just not sure till your friend tells you to buy it. Until then you wear baggy clothes and look for shows that are bad and unfunny.
"This one caught my eye out of pure chance and I am super happy that it did! Loved the effort you guys are putting into this! The writing is nice and I can't wait to see what unfolds in the voting process."
Good effort but it reminds me of Three's Company jokes?
and that makes it SOOOOOOOOO Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am assuming…
I am actually too young to understand your reference.
The jokes in this video fell flat for me. I don't think this is particularly my cup of tea but I appreciate the effort and heart involved! And yes to women driven projects! Good luck!
No of course it is not a cup of tea….it is an online video about a mother who makes a video letter to her daughter. Good luck finding your tea! Try to remember where you were the last time you put it down.
Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!! I am interested to see what else is in store for Stella.
Good luck with your voting.
Very smart writing and performance(s?!). This looks like a great showcase for you and I'm really interested in seeing more. Great work.
Congratulations on making it into the Top 55! Not exactly my type of humour, but I still enjoyed the video! Good luck in the next round of voting!
What is your type of humour? I am just curious….is it the not funny kind. I like that too. Thanks for taking the time to earn votes for another team, they're gonna need your help!
Dear Stella - Is this an election? - The promises on your Sell Sheet sound as far-fetched as any politician's promises. Clever writing. However, I kinda get the jokes about Mike Duffy and Rob Ford, but it's a little too soon for Jian Ghomeshi.
Hahahaa!!! that is the best comment so far! Love it! Yes in fact Deb C this is an election and if you don't vote for Dear Stella we will never have world peace and it will be all your fault.
I always enjoy it when there is a unique female lead such as the one in this film. I am interested to see how you guys do in the future! It is a different kind of humour, but still entertaining! So congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good luck on making it to the Top 15!!
I can't say this is not funny, but just not the type of humour I respond to, but it really feels like a lot of the Canadian comedy that is out there.
Double negative….You love it! Thank you!!! I love double negative comments that is kind of like when the guy really wants to ask you out but then decides to punch you in the arm instead but you know he really likes you.
That was funny. Good ideas in there. I am not sure where this will lead with all those 'shady characters. could end up being really cracking up though! I wish you luck Dear Stella with your project.
Interesting and funny. Would like to see more material from you Good luck
Really liked this video. The writing is great....very funny and interesting without the silliness seen in so many other projects. Really looking forward to seeing more.
Going forward my votes will go to storyline, substance and ability to deliver a sustainable, CBC suitable, comedy series. Curious to see if you can deliver that.
That is a great comment to post on everyone's page to gain votes without watching the videos. Can I use it?
A one woman show is unique. You have funny lines and the concept is interesting. I guess it is a media event with a twist. Good luck and I will follow this project advances.
I am always so conscious about what names I give my female characters. And then I realized sometimes I am just as awful with me. GAY GUY, HOT MAN, HOT YOGI GIRL. Sometimes the stereotype helps keep it less wordy!
I also use those stereotypical names especially when I see a Gay Guy, Hot man or a Hot Yogi girl. Perhaps we could go to sensitivity classes together.
I kind of dig the one woman show, but more actors could definitely add. The botttom captions were pretty funny and clever. Good luck on getting into the top 15! And congratz on making it this far.
THANKS! But just to clarify this is not a one woman show. Actra union rates preclude me from casting at the present time….BUT 500000 later, there will be more actors than at an open casting call for the Musical CATS!
I really like the concept of this mini series! Keep up the good work! Hope you make it to the next round!
Dear Stella, I love you show. Love, me. Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!!
Well done dummy mummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are my super hero and great job on your video and good luck.
I like the show concept, there's definitely material to mine there and a very likeable lead. I missed half the video due to that scroll on the bottom though, a little distracting. Best of luck!
sorry to distract you…You must have trouble with CNN too.
Constructive comment is to keep doing what you are doing. Very funny stuff, keep up the good work and keep doing what you are doing.
Top 15 for sure!
I am not sure that this is the best way to attract media attention, but it was an amusing video. I am rooting for you in this competition because overall I have enjoyed your work this far. Keep it up!
No the best way to attract media attention is to walk around the city naked.
TOP 15!!!! GO GO GO!!!!
Top 15 material for sure! Congratulations making it in the top 50 and now getting to the top 15. Best of luck moving forward.
Made me laugh out loud. More than once.
I'm sooooo glad you added the violin gag at the end, cause I was really starting to doubt your sensibilities every time that sound came up. Looks like you got a super talented lady here :)
I really like this show idea. I think it has wide appeal. The struggles of women in the workplace. The struggles of girls in Junior High. I think it has family appeal and has a feminist message that everyone seems to be talking about right now.
Very strong! Loved the violin part too. Just a little extra detail that really worked. Way to go!
There's nothing about this I don't like! A positive female role model, finally! Although, you are from the East Coast, so that's a bit of an issue... Just kidding! I can't imagine you having any trouble waltzing into the Top 15!
your show is really looking good, funny and a third thing I can't think of at this precise moment. I hope you make it all the way
I am dying to know the third thing!!!!
Not just laughing, but so enjoying it! Great use of the one minute and a half! Good presentation and great acting skills! I want more of this show, good comedy and lovely actress :)
Dear Stella - Top 15 quality :)
Hi there! I just wanted to say that I enjoyed watching this video! My favourite part of it was the violin notes that played throughout the joke parts and then at the end when you addressed it. I like that kind of comedy. Good luck in the contest!
Ok, I admit I had to watch this video twice. (Maybe 'cause my hubby was chatting to me at the same time.) But, I got it the second time. Smart, funny...I like it. I look forward to more..
Thanks Lisa B…I take full responsibility for your husband talking while you were watching this video. It will never happen again!
Fun to see how you can play different characters, and stay topical !! And if any of that is true - about the dating - and the smoking - lol - black mail them all into doing guest spots in your next clips hahaha
Hitting all the right notes to attract some serious media attention! I certainly hope that we will be rooting for you in the finals. I like your concept!
Best of luck to them moving into the next round. I'm not sure this is my age demographic so ironically, no comment.
Hey Emilee G! Um.. I have no idea how old you are? My mum uses the word demographic and likes men in uniforms just like you. Are you 63? All I can guess from your comment you are not 15 or 40.
You are definitely hitting your stride now. Just gets better every week. Keep on keepin' on!
I was going to comment on the violin being a little too repetitious until the gag at the end! Hilarious, best of luck moving on!
Funny, except Jian.
I agree with you. Next time i will think before I joke….actually I probably won't.
Can the people who post here just so they can earn votes for other teams maybe not?
I don't get what the premise of the show is, your video was just the same joke over and over again: it's tough to get good roles for women. I dunno, didn't grab my interest.
You know what I don't get…why we are all here? think bigger Sarah D…then everything will make sense. Peace and love.
Ooohh. As much as I really enjoyed this week's video, and I have been watching you from the start, I didn't think you nailed the mission. I even checked the sell sheet, but didn't get a clear sense of where the show would take us. Still, you deliver terrific humour with superb timing. I'll keep watching!
First of all I don't like the word nailed…I find that very offensive…now if you had of said "I don't think you banged the mission" well then you would have been right.
good job this week. The video was funny and entertaining. The sell sheet is also very eye catching and I like the little girl version of you on it. Good luck!
Great job. I am happy to support this project. Good luck making it to the next round. #HypeIt #ComedyCoupHype #BeHyperactive #100Characters
Your record is still skipping
I think you are funny and that keeps me coming back for more - good job on this week's video, such talent!!! I'm looking forward to more!
good job on this weeks challenge! it was very informative and I think you are very relatable and I want to watch more. Good luck in the rest of the competition and keep working!
The agent approach was funny and seems it is not so far from "real life " agents . I wasn't sure if this character fit into the series or if it is just as the media project role for Week #5. Anyway good job.
Fantabulous hype video! I think I know that agent! Not mine of course.....
Definitely top 15 material!
Nice reveiw of your project. I can see potential for lots of funny situations.This a one project I look forward to following. Good job!! The violin added a nice touch and will we see more from the daughter. I'd like to see more interaction with her as well.
This was my favourite of your videos so far. I thought it actually was humorous and seemed more creative and witty than your previous ones. Not sure if it's just me but your Facebook link doesn't seem to be working right now.
Cute. The violin was a nice touch. Now where can we find those selfie nudies...
This is my favourite video. I like that there only seems to be two types of agents for emerging talent: the desperate Murray Hewitts, and the iron walls designed to keep the emerging talents out.
Great video, every team needs an agent like yours, she's a great character, nicely done, I liked what you did with the violin and you had some good jokes in there too, Good luck with your Makeover Party
Nice looking sell sheet by the way
Did you get the violin gag from Mrs Browns Boys, I think that's where I seen it before ? Worked great in your video !!
Chuckled. Interesting concept.
Love the violin gag. Good luck in the voting round. Any chance all three Nova Scotia concepts will make the cut to 15? See you there? Hope so.
You've got this. Love it.
This is definitely making the top 15- gooo stella!
Best one yet. funny stuff. keep up the good work. I'd like to see this in the Top 15 for sure.
