Women are expected to be yummy mommies in today’s society, but how exactly are you supposed to do it? Should Anne Marie give up all her hopes, dreams and yoga classes? Let them cry themselves to sleep and actually say ‘no’? Or figure out a way to have it all…whatever that means!!!!

Other credits to her name include acclaimed shows such as, Watch Norma’s Back!, Leaving Norma, Dating Myself, Not Getting It and Got it Good.
Anne Marie has performed all over North America, including Atlantic City and Los Angeles, and her 5th show Not Getting It was made into a one hour comedy television special that currently plays on The Comedy Network.

“Anne Marie Scheffler didn’t think motherhood would be this hard. She thought she could be the sexy showbiz mom, with a baby in one arm and a movie script in the other. Her jarring realization otherwise makes for a humorous and entertaining show. Scheffler is a charismatic, sparkling performer.”
