Comedy or drama, thought-provoking or escapist entertainment...the objective remains the same: creating characters that audiences can identify with and telling a good story. Borrowing from sports parlance, my performance philosophy is: Go deep (emotionally) go long (unafraid to look foolish) or go home. Along with private coaching I also teach classes for The Negro Ensemble Company. Call Anthony Jones at 212-582-5860 or visit www.NECinc.org for additional information.

I've spent more than 30 years in network television (20-plus of them in LA) working on cushy sets. But after graduating from Southern Illinois University (also the alma mater of Dennis Franz and Melissa McCarthy) with concentrations in theater and journalism & training at NEC with Laurence Fishburne and Robert Townsend as classmates, I got my start on the gritty streets of New York City doing bawdy sketch comedy and political satire with Off-Centre Theatre on a pull-down stage off the side of a seen-better-days moving van with a baby on my hip. As a working mom, however, I quickly developed a penchant for sitcoms & soaps...better pay and more regular hours.
Now an empty-nester, I've gone back to the streets as Ginger Peechee-Keane, Adult Sex-Ed Evangelist & Mojo Motivator! What can I say? Once a hippie-chick, ALWAYS a hippie-chick...but with better jewelry.
Partnered with her sister Sonia as Co-CEO of M.O.I.S.T.! (The Multiple Orgasm Institute for Sexual Transformation) -- Ginger set about debunking the myth that women lose sexual vibrancy, vitality and viability with age. With a move from Los Angeles to New York City, she also became captivated by the bravery and boldness of Wall Street's Occupy Movement. In response to the increased threats she saw against women's reproductive rights and access to health care -- not to mention being deluged with horror stories of bad dates and boring sex -- Ginger decided to actuate that boldness and bravery by becoming the world's foremost expert on adult sex education and a champion for enduring satisfaction in loving relationships.
I've been developing this character in sketch comedy and theater festival productions since 2005. In 2013, I premiered a solo production in workshop at NYC's Dixon Place. Stay tuned to see what happens next!
I invite you to peruse this website to see how I practice what I teach...most recently in two episodes of NBC's hit series, The Blacklist!
