As an actress she has appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Mindy Project and The Sopranos. And she and her writing partner Brandy Howard wrote for Joan Rivers on Fashion Police on E!.

Her first stand-up performance was at The Comedy Connection in Boston, Massachusetts, at the age of 15. Julie founded an all-women's stand-up and variety show called "OFFENSIVE WOMEN" and recruited Eve Ensler to sponsor their biggest show to date at The Zipper Theater in NYC.

Rebecca Schiffman
Rebecca Schiffman
Rebecca Schiffman is a singer-songwriter and artist based in Highland Park, Los Angeles. Her eponymous third LP, produced by Money Mark and featuring Nels Cline, came out this year on Fayettenam Records. A born-and-bred New Yorker, Schiffman has been described as a “long-lost Royal Tenenbaums character” (Vice Magazine) and has been profiled for her music, art, jewelry, and writing by The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Nylon, among other publications. Schiffman studied cello and piano from a young age, eventually picking up guitar. While attending college at the prestigious Cooper Union School of Art, Schiffman played bass in the pop-punk band Pearl Harbor. Her bandmate Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits) produced songs from Schiffman’s 4-track bedroom recordings, resulting in her first album Upside Down Lacrimosa, described as “resplendent and charming” by Lost at Sea. In 2009, Schiffman self-released her follow-up album, To Be Good for a Day. It was named “Best Album of the Month” by Vice Magazine and the song “Aaron” was featured in Lena Dunham’s breakout film, Tiny Furniture. Schiffman eventually moved to Los Angeles where she met collaborator Money Mark. In August 2016, the Adult Swim TV show, Squidbillies, aired with Schiffman's version of the show's theme song.

Although Schiffman’s primary focus is music, she has worked in other mediums. Her paintings have been shown at galleries around the United States including Ratio3 (San Francisco) and Bas Fisher Invitational (Miami), and the musician Grimes has frequently performed in Schiffman's jewelry designs. Schiffman has also acted as muse for renowned artist-photographers Ryan McGinley, Justine Kurland, and Sara Vanderbeek. She currently serves as vice president of the Highland Park Heritage Trust, a non-profit dedicated to preserving the culture of LA's Arroyo communities.
