LOS ANGELES, Dec. 31, 2013 /CNW/ - Canadian Comedy award winning actress
Lindsay Ames will appear in the Funny or Die sketch comedy videos
"Karaoke Adventure" and "I am Lisa Simpson" featuring Yeardley Smith,
the Emmy winning actress who voices Lisa Simpson on "The Simpsons." The
videos are slated to release in January 2014 on www.funnyordie.com
From director Andrew Bush ("Roller Town"), "Karaoke Adventure" answers
the question of what happens when a night of karaoke goes awry. Ames is
playing a karaoke patron who reveals an unexpected plot twist.
In "I am Lisa Simpson," Smith and Ames find themselves in an unlikely
world where no one knows who Lisa Simpson is. Ames plays a customer who
gives Smith a hard time during her comedic identity crisis.
"What an amazing experience it was to work with a legend," Ames said of
acting alongside Smith. "I always feel lucky and excited to work with

Bush said, "Lindsay not only has fantastic comedic instincts, she brings
a great energy to set. I'm always excited when I get to work with her.
I am a fan."
