Biography

A woman who wears many hats, funny lady Julie Brown has proved her mettle on television, in feature films, and as a recording artist. As a film actress, she made her film debut in Bloody Birthday (1980). As a screenwriter, she co-penned the script for Earth Girls Are Easy (1989), a film in which she also played a leading role. The film title came from one of Brown's songs. She has starred and directed a few cable comedy specials, notably Showtime's Medusa: Dare to Be Truthful, which won a Cable-Ace Award (she was nominated for four). The show also earned her a Charlie Coffey Writers Guild Award. In 1992, Brown starred in the short-lived Fox comedy sketch series The Edge and had a series on MTV called Just Say Julie (1989-1992). She has also recorded albums and had a couple of minor hits, including "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun" and "Cause I'm a Blonde." In 2008 Brown wrote and starred in the Disney Channel movie Camp Rock, starring teen singing sensation Demi Lovato, and in 2010 she joined the cast of the ABC sitcom The Middle, which followed a quasi-dysfunctional Indiana family in their attempts to survive life in the suburbs. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
