IN THE PRESS

NOW STREAMING EXCLUSIVELY ON FX ON HULU

Packed with stunning performances... a sprawling, ambitious series that spans a decade & features one of the most impressive ensemble TV casts of 2020.

Mrs. America reflects on the injustices that Schlafly experiences but refuses to romanticize her or her work. Plot beats expose Schlafly’s intellectual dishonesty and tacit acceptance of the Ku Klux Klan’s endorsement. Schlafly’s conversations with Lottie Beth Hobbs (Cindy Drummond), a collaborator based in Texas, particularly shatter the duo’s claims of moral high ground. Hobbs gives strikingly lucid insight into reactionary strains of Christianity, a faith she argues relies not only on love, but also on hate. -Slant

MARCO RUBIO GOES OFF TOPIC

BY MICHAEL BARBARO

Mr. Rubio has apparently watched it several times.  "I love the line, 'The squirrels are back.  Your dad doesn't want to call the exterminator.  This time it's personal.'"

GEICO'S NEW MOM CHARACTER IS SO GOOD, THEY COULDN'T DO JUST ONE SPOT
CINDY DRUMMOND GIVES MARTIN PLENTY OF MATERIAL
BY DAVID GIANATASIO

"She's a better writer than I am," says Marcus (senior copy writer at the Martin Agency). "She kept giving us so much fun material. It would have been a shame to leave that all behind on a hard drive somewhere."

THE BEST OF GEICO

"Spy Mom" joins the Caveman, Caleb the Camel, Maxwell the Pig and the Sloth in the Top 5.

JEOPARDY

Ok, it's not technically an award, but it's pretty frigging cool that Cindy was an "Answer" on Jeopardy twice.

 

BIO

Cindy Drummond spent the first 35 years of her life avoiding becoming an entertainer. After dropping in and out of college, waiting tables, tending bar, managing restaurants and working retail, all on her feet, Cindy found herself with a bad case of plantar fasciitis and an equally bad case of wanderlust.

So, she finally packed up her custom orthotics and her hopes and dreams, and moved to Los Angeles, where she quickly got a job...waiting tables.

But luckily for Cindy, the difference between waiting tables in Alexandria, Virginia, and waiting tables in Los Angeles, is that in L.A., all the other servers are actors, writers and comics. She had finally found her tribe.

Cindy first tried her hand at stand-up comedy. She performed at the big clubs like The Improv, The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory as well as alternative clubs like the late great Luna Park.

She even got fired from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, a badge of honor for alternative comics like Cindy, who utilize storytelling and improvisation rather than the classic set-up punch.

The stand up soon led to acting.

You might recognize her as the GEICO "Spy Mom," a recurring role since 2015. Cindy's years as a stand-up sharpened the improvisational skills she used to help mold the character of "Spy Mom" in collaboration with the director Wayne McClammy and the copy writers and ad execs from The Martin Agency. One of Cindy's favorite parts of her career is the act of collaboration. A senior copy writer said of her, "She's a better writer than I am. She kept giving us so much fun material. It would have been a shame to leave that all behind on a hard drive somewhere."

The "Spy Mom" character went on to be voted one of the top 5 GEICO commercials of all time in a Best of GEICO nationwide contest. And much to the delight of Cindy's parents, "Cindy Drummond" has twice been the answer to the question on JEOPARDY.

Cindy also enjoys working in film and television. She can be seen as a recurring guest star on the CBS prime time comedy "The Unicorn." And in one of her proudest and most satisfying roles to date, she appeared as Lottie Beth Hobbs alongside Cate Blanchette in the multi-Emmy nominated historical limited series, "Mrs. America," on FX on Hulu.

When Cindy is not working, she gives her time to a small non-profit all-volunteer-run animal rescue in Los Angeles called LA Animal Rescue, she is a Board Member and volunteer. She says the animals keep her grateful, grounded and sane.
