Tony-Winning Ex Child Star Writes Bawdy, Hilarious Tweets

Categories: Theater

In 1991, 11-year-old Daisy Eagan won the 1991 best Featured Actress in a Musical Tony for her performance in Secret Garden, but her garden isn't so secret anymore.

Today, Daisy--who's playing Joe's Pub on September 17--writes a nonstop spewing of funny tweets for the world to see, and I must say I recommend them more than most of the stuff on Broadway nowadays.

For example:

"Decided to take the word 'cunt' out of the first line of my show. You're welcome."

"My new headshots say I may have short hair but I enjoy penises."

"Forgot hairspray. There go my hopes of getting laid tonight."

"Ladies, when he tries to make you think you're being 'crazy', feel free to point out he's being a dick."

"I once told a homeless man to 'keep it real,' so no, I'm not proud of myself."

"Whenever I see an ad where the woman is a bitchy cunt, I'm like 'I'm totally gonna buy that now'."

"The wife in the Jack in the Box commercial is so cunty it makes me want to eat a bunch of shitty fast food."

And best of all:


Glad to see some child stars grow up just fine, thank you.

Daisy, I've already said this to you personally but I'd like to say it publicly. "Ex Child Star", hmmm...  You definitely are not a child.  You, by choice, are not a big celebrity.  But you have never ceased to be remarkable, admirable, and one hell of a bold, brilliant, beautiful broad.  In whatever capacity she chooses, Ms. Eagan is here to stay; to captivate audiences with her insightful and provocative wit, her self-deprecating charm, and her uniquely fearless vulnerability.   Daisy, you truly have earned a life-long standing ovation.


omg! so funny esp. the last one.



The Wiesler.'s are not gonna like this.


LOL she's a riot! Love that , "My new headshots say I may have short hair but I enjoy penises." one..hehe


I, myself, have long hair (now), and I have never enjoyed a penis (I'm a chick), and I'm 40! Yes.. a real life 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'.. But technically, I'm not a virgin (won't try and explain that one). I have visited myself upon the ladies a few times. I'm open to penises,  I am just not always fond with my legs are open. ;-)


Anyway, she's got a hella'va of a lot of wit about her, and lovely to view one's eyes upon. :-)


She looks-and sounds--amazing.
