My childhood dream was, and still is, to be a dancer, singer, actor.


So where am I now? Well, I’ve evolved and metamorphosed into an actor/comedian/writer/director~sort of. I’ve recently made two short films with Jim Carrey (or at least the cardboard cut out of him) and before you ask, yes he’s aware. The short films are “Seagulls' ' and “Making Out with a Broom”. I know you have questions so let me give you the rundown.

“Seagulls” is the Lesley Carlberg take on an interview that Jim (we’re on a first name basis) did with Marc Maron. Jim may or may not have a bobblehead of himself, like I do, but they’ve definitely been transported to the beach and the rest you’ll have to see for yourself.

For “Making Out with a Broom”, Jim is cast as Jim Bell, a husband having a conversation at the kitchen table with his wife Andie Sommer-Bell, played by yours truly ;). This short is a fun ride that pushes you to remember your absurdist creative side.

Big thanks goes out to Brother Sea Productions for bringing these projects to life. Stay tuned for news on where you can see these exciting projects in the future!

My big hairy audacious goal right now is writing a musical dramedy and filming a documentary about the process of it. The title is pending but it’s a story about motivation, perseverance, cataloging one artist’s career as they move from endeavor to endeavor with unwavering enthusiasm and gumption as they push to realize their dream of being a dancer, singer and actor.

It gets heavy ya’ll. The show follows four women who have been through it” in their own way. Abandoned by friends, family, husbands or children, seemingly constant rejection from auditions, dealing with health complications, on-line dating, the urge to binge watch everything and play Candy Crush until their eyes crust over. The characters contemplate their lives and unrealized dreams wondering what they're going to be when they grow up, how to keep up in this dizzying world and continue believing in their voice as the big clock in the sky keeps ticking. Don’t worry, I promise you, you’ll be holding your tummy, we keep it light!

This show is a major culmination of my career and if you know and love “How I lost one pound” you’re going to love this one. Okay go away, leave me alone so I can write the damn thing!

The play represents a lot for me. I’m in my late 50s, recently separated after a 31-year marriage,

moved across the country to Victoria, B.C. where two of my 3 children lived before they both moved away, haha,

at least one of them stuck around and is in the same province!

So, it’s life 2.0 for ol’ Lesley. It’s just me and my dog, Abby, and all the decisions are mine.

You have to believe in yourself and make things happen.
