About Me

Theresa Cannistraci-Farrell is an Actor, Producer, Stand-Up Comedian and a Talk Show Host who grew up in Queens, NY. She hit the stage at four years old, after her Mother signed her up for tap dance lessons. That's where the Producers of the movie The Godfather walked in looking to cast kids for the wedding scene. Theresa being 100% Sicilian was thrilled for this opportunity. But instead, had her first experience with rejection, when they told her that she did not look Italian enough! She responded by telling them that "Italian people have blue eyes too!" Theresa was also part of Danny Aiello's Italian Chicks Comedy Show. She is quick witted and loves Improv. Theresa has appeared in Commercials, Movies, a Web Series and a TV Sitcom. She loves transforming herself from a blonde bombshell to an old Italian Grandmother with an accent! Theresa hosts her own Talk Show every Monday night at 8pm EST called T TIME (her friends call her T) through Strong Island Television, which can be seen on ROKUTV, AmazonFireTV, TwitchTV, Facebook, Youtube, everywhere Podcasts can be heard and every Saturday at 11am on Channel 20 for people who live on Long Island. Theresa is thrilled to be part of a traveling Off-Broadway show called BATBOY: A Yankee Miracle, the true life story of Ray Negron. She is also in the longest running murder mystery show in NY, called Murdered by the Mob. She has been performing Stand-Up Comedy since the early 90's and enjoys the live interaction with her audiences. Theresa has been at deaths door five times (one out of body experience) and is a Warrior! She is blessed, grateful for everyday and looking forward to many more roles in the future.
