Lennon Parham is a member of the UCBT Touring Company and the house team, Reuben Williams. Her one-woman character show, She Tried to Be Normal, is currently running at the UCBT LA. In June, she reprised her role, flailing about as Nomi Malone in the hit stage show, Showgirls: the Best Movie Ever Made. Ever! She is also co-creator and performer of The Adventures of Lock & Kay, a two-woman show about the rise of a Pop Superstar Duo. Previous New York Improv and Sketch credits include Kill Your Darlings, The Shoves, Dillinger, We Built This City on Rent Control (Second City NY) and Blindspot. Film credits include Confessions of a Shopaholic (Feb '09), Pretty Bird & Hysterical Psycho. NY Theatre credits include Elephant in the Room!, Crepuscule, Hold the Fat, Until We Find Each Other and many other workshops with the O'Neill Playwrights Conference and MCC's young playwrights group. She holds a BS in Theatre from the University of Evansville in Indiana and taught French for 2 years at TL Weston High School in Greenville, Mississippi with Teach for America.

When Lennon Parham was on Dillinger, she initially hung back and said very little. While this may come off as her being shy, in fact, she was establishing herself as a silent improv killer. This led Anthony King, early into the team's existence, to once quietly say "Lennon is going to smoke us all" in reference to her abilities.

Gay dudes love Lennon.
