Julie Brown is an American actress, comedian, screen/television writer, singer-songwriter, and director. After moving away from her hometown of Van Nuys (aka “The Valley”), Julie began her career as a comedian in the clubs of San Francisco. After returning to Los Angeles, she immediately started working as an actress and writer.
After guest-starring in sitcoms, like “Laverne & Shirley,” “The Jeffersons,” “Newhart,” and “Quantum Leap,” Julie added singing to her act, producing her own EP with the hit songs “The Homecoming Queen’s Got a Gun” and “Earth Girls Are Easy”- which through a stroke of show business luck became a movie she co-wrote and starred in (along with Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, and Jim Carrey). She also starred in and wrote the comedy show “Just Say Julie” for MTV and created a satire Madonna mockumentary for Showtime called “Medusa: Dare to be Truthful,” which won her the Writers Guild award for Best Comedy Special. During this same time, Julie also co-created the FOX sketch comedy series, “The Edge,” starring herself and Jennifer Aniston.
Julie was then cast as Ms. Stoeger in the movie “Clueless” and went on to write, direct, and star on the series version of “Clueless,” which ran for three seasons. Julie also starred in and created “Strip Mall” for Comedy Central for two seasons. In addition, Julie co-wrote the Disney Channel original movie mega-hit “Camp Rock,” which launched the careers of Demi Lovato and The Jonas Brothers. Julie was later a writer on the Kevin Hart series “The Big House.” Julie also wrote multiple episodes of “Melissa and Joey,” where she recurred as a guest star. Julie also had a recurring role on ABC’s “The Middle” and was a guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
Julie has voiced many fan-favorite animated characters for TV and film, including “Animaniacs,” “Batman,” “Pinky and the Brain,” and “A Goofy Movie.”
Currently, Julie is working on a sequel to “Medusa,” as well as “Earth Girls are Easy: The Musical,” and her first Young Adult novel.
