Multiple Personalities // with Madeline Wager

When Los Angeles comedian (and dear friend) Madeline Wager contacted us with an idea for a portrait series of her characters, we didn’t know what we were in for.

Over the course of two months this summer, we traveled back and forth between LA and the Bay to produce and shoot a six-image series capturing these characters and their personalities.

Madeline has an infectious sense of humor — at the end of the day, our faces were often sore from laughing so much during our time with her.

Here’s a few images, and a little about the series, from Madeline:

Tami, Delores, and Karen are characters that I’ve developed over the past 3 years. They have been on stage, podcasts, web series, and have even arm wrestled for charity.

Delores is still on the fence about being a “buh-sexual”. Per the request of her therapist, Delores decides to share her feelings by reading journal entries in front of a live audience.

Tami found jazzercise after a tragic death in her family. She dances through her pain and encourages others to “dust off the cobwebs from your body and in your heart”.

Krafty Karen is delighted by everything and everyone. She owns over 12 glue guns, can bedazzle garbage, and will foster your cat.

You can see Maddy in action at Los Angeles Lady Arm Wrestlers (LA LAW) spring and fall brawls at The Bootleg Theater.
