“The Night” Premieres at SBIFF to Rave Reviews

Over Labor Day Weekend 2018, the lovely and talented Niousha Noor called to inquire if I could speak Farsi. There's a film, she told me, that stars Shahab Hosseini (of Oscar-winning The Salesman and A Separation fame), and they're in ...
Gia Mora Making Faces for Pessimists Archive

Making Faces

Rehabbing my hip by bicycle while talking on the telephone and listening to the impeachment on the radio... making this face. A face my grandmother might admonish would stay that way, should she have seen me make it. This week’s episode ...

Your Loving Teddy Bear

Did the teddy bear ruin young Gia’s maternal instincts? Listen to the latest episode of Pessimists Archive to find out why moralists at the turn of the 20th century believed this beloved stuffed animal threatened the existence of the human ...

Under the Knife

Back in the early aughts, an agent gave me the following unsolicited advice: “Just eat spinach and 12 almonds for every meal. And consider having your hips shaved.” Imaging a surgeon taking a chainsaw to my muffin top, I slowly ...

Now Playing: “Pessimists Archive”

Vanity was born when the mirror was discovered... It's always a delight to be a part of a project that I can enjoy as much as a performer as I can as an audience member. Pessimists Archive, hosted by the ...
Gia Mora's Atheist Rhapsody

New Original Song: “Atheist Rhapsody”

NEW SONG! 🚨📻🚨 Introducing ATHEIST RHAPSODY, performed live at The Second City Hollywood, written especially for Brother Bradley’s religion-themed Easter weekend comedy show. I am profoundly grateful to be able to sing these words without fear of state retribution or ...

Ciao!

When I was born, my parents declared themselves executive producers and decorated my birth announcement with klieg lights, so it's no surprise I started singing with my dad, guitarist Rick Chinisci, when I was three.

I began my career performing world premiere musicals on the east coast, for which I received four Helen Hayes Award nominations. Modern Songbook Records released my two albums, and I toured the U.S. with my original musical comedy Einstein's Girl.

Now based in Los Angeles, you may have seen me on TV shows like Baskets and Impress Me. I'm a series regular voice actor on Pessimists Archive and a custom voice producer with Premiere Networks. I'm also 1/3 of Scirens--a creative team dedicated to promoting science through entertainment. Scirens' comedy pilot MOMs was a finalist in the 2018 NY Television Festival Scripts Contest. In 2019, Anchors Away, the comedy I wrote and star in with Tara Jean O'Brien, screened at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and the Lift-Off Film Festival.

Like a pair of rhinestone Birkenstocks: elevated earthiness

My other writing stems from an eclectic array of personal interests, appearing on sites including OpenFitSheer Miracle, Voyage Vixens, Ms. in the Biz., as well as covering science entertainment for Scirens. I've composed music for film, comedy songs, and a disco number for Minnesota Public Radio. I also irregularly blog on this very site.

If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be rhinestone Birkenstocks (which I own and find to be glamorously down to earth). I love yoga, kitties, ecochic living, and fine art. Sure, it betrays my Italian heritage to eat vegan, but I promise I make up for it in pasta consumption.
