Watch Pittsburgh Girl Gillian Jacobs on NBC’s Community

23 Sep

Pittsburgh sure has bred a lot of actors and actresses!

Another to add to the list is Ms. Gillian Jacobs….the most recent Maniac Magazine cover girl and also a cast member of the hit NBC sitcom, “Community” which airs on Thursday nights.

Jacobs grew up in Mt. Lebanon and made herself known via Pittsburgh’s Public Theater. Her breakout role was on stage in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Aside from her theater work and her starring role on Community, Gillian has film and TV credits in NOnames, Coach, Watching TV with the Red Chinese, The Box, Choke, Law & Order, The Good Wife, Traveler, Fringe, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, among others.

Way to represent Pittsburgh, Gillian!

Kathy Griffin Loves Primanti Bros.

10 Sep

Comedienne Kathy Griffin was in Pittsburgh for a show at Heinz Hall on Thursday September 9th.

She stopped at Primanti’s – and apparently was impressed by the signature french fries-on-sandwich specialty dish 🙂

She tweeted before going on stage,

“Last nite I actually ate a sandwich here in Pittsburgh @Primanti’s w frfries INSIDE (SO good!)”

That’s how we do it here in Pittsburgh, Kathy!

Romantically Challenged in Pittsburgh – Set your DVR’s!

29 Mar

Pittsburghers,  set your DVR’s!

ABC’s “Romantically Challenged” stars fan favorite and “Twitter queen”, Alyssa Milano (of Charmed and Who’s the Boss fame) and will be set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

It will air on April 12th, 2010 at 9:30 p.m. EST (well, actually, 9:32 to be precise.)

The producer Ricky Blitt wanted the comedy to be set in a city with a “small-town” feel … plus, he is a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan!
