interviews Phyllis Smith

the office phyllis lapin

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has an excellent profile on Phyllis Smith (“Phyllis”). An excerpt:

‘To look at Phyllis, an “Office” drone best-known for her deadpan double-takes, you might never suspect that Smith was a dancer with professional companies in St. Louis, a football Cardinals cheerleader, and a burlesque performer with Will B. Able and his Baggy Pants Revue at the Chase-Park Plaza in the 1970s.’

  1. That is a great article. I hope they work her burlesque dancing into the plot somehow. Thanks for positing it!

  2. You’re welcome, Annie! :)

    I have noticed Phyllis dancing in a couple of episodes — Christmas Party and The Fire (when Dwight is singing ‘Ryan Started the Fire’).
