Additional Resume Info (submitted by page owner via IMDb Resume)

  • * Hazelle Goodman

    Woody Allen told the New York Times "Hazelle is a real find! She is a
    comedienne who is very funny and can incorporate her humor into first rate

    Hazelle Goodman, a native of Trinidad and Tobago is a one- woman
    powerhouse! Her unique ability to transform into many different characters
    has propelled her to the forefront as a multi-dimensional actress.

    Featured in Vogue, People and Vibe magazines, her self-titled HBO Special
    received unprecedented ratings and was nominated for two Cable Ace Awards –
    Best Comedy Special and Best Performer.

    Among her many credits, Ms. Goodman starred opposite Woody Allen in the
    ground breaking role of "Cookie" in Allen's Deconstructing Harry, as the
    diva, drug lord, "Georgia Rae Mahoney" on NBC's Homicide, and most recently as as Evelda Drumgo in the block buster film Hannibal.

    People magazine calls the actress "sinfully good," and Time Out New York
    declares her "a memorable comic gem."

    In her solo performance "On Edge," Goodman brings a cast of 12 to life in
    a nonstop, spitfire performance. The comedienne has such endurance and
    chameleon-like skill, her performance kept me glued to the stage for a full
    75 minutes.'
    Spoletto Festival - NC

    "She dominates the stage. If Goodman's delivering the blow, it's bound to
    sting." -- Village Voice

    "Ms. Goodman does an outstanding job...she seems to change gender by facial
    expression alone." -- New York Times

    Ms. Goodman was honored by former Manhattan Borough President, C. Virginia Fields for her outstanding contributions in Theatre, Television and Film
