Child of a belly-dancer and a candlestick maker, Thessaly Storm Lerner was born in an electric storm in West Marin, California. Alternatively-schooled and artistically-encouraged, Rainbow Valentine/Clara’s early years were spent changing her name, playing dress-up and yearning for child-stardom, which never came. Determined to play Annie or Dorothy, Lerner attended Emerson College, where she graduated on roller-skates with a BFA in the earnest-kind of Acting. Subsequently, she moved to San Francisco, where she performed, wrote, directed and produced comedic theatricals, founded an improv troupe, worked with many notable Bay Area Theatre companies and became a voiceover talent. Lerner’s voiceover credits include Electronic Art’s “The Sims 2” and all expansion packs, Sony Playstation’s “Silent Hill 1 & 3”, dozens of Leapfrog Toys, Disney, WB Kids, MTV and hundreds more. Upon moving to LA in 2004, Lerner became The Ukulady and has performed on National Lampoon Radio, KPFK, at The Hollywood Improv, Comedy Store, The Venetian Hotel in Vegas, Pride & Fringe Festivals, NYC Uke Fest, her own weekly variety show in Hollywood, The Ponyshow, and her first album, Banned From Canters! was released in 2008! The Ukulady is constantly performing and creating new songs and projects, so check www.myspace.com/TheUkulady for schedules and updatesies!
