Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A petite, energetic comedienne and actress who has opened for The Band on the concert stage and starred in the short-lived Fox series "My Wildest Dreams" (1995), Lisa Ann Walter scored as Claudine, Whoopi Goldberg's best friend in the feature film "Eddie" (1995). She began her career as a young girl of six, and in the 90s was appearing Off-Broadway as Brandy in the South Street Theatre's production of "Battery". Walter began performing on the stand-up stage, where her act has been termed "boisterous" by critics, who have also spoken of her "well-built" frame, somewhat unusual for comediennes. This led to opening for The Band on their "Jericho" tour. Fox signed her in 1995 expecting series success, but her vehicle, "My Wildest Dreams", in which Walter was a career woman trying to balance the elements of her life did not click. In 1996, she co-created and starred in the short-lived ABC sitcom "Life's Work", in which she was an assistant US attorney in Baltimore balancing home and work.
