The Other Lemming

Our limited docuseries follows actress Mary Jenifer Mitchell , a girl who went on a weekend trip to New York, and ended up becoming part of comedy history. Performing at the legendary Café A GO GO, Café La Ma Ma, Broadway, Off-Broadway, London’s West End and eventually finding her way to the National Lampoon.

In 1973 The Lampoon went… Off- Broadway. American satirist Tony Hendra directed the rag tag cast of newbies: Christopher Guest, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Gary Goodrow, Paul Jacobs, Alice Playten, and Mary Jenifer Mitchell. The success of the show catapulted some of its cast to legendary status while Mary was lost to time. Her journey continued with a career in country music and even starring role in the very first made for cable T.V. movie. This is the unfiltered story of The Other Lemming.
