To celebrate the show’s fifth anniversary, Mosley will host a live show at downtown Los Angeles’ Regent Theater on September 22.

As an actor, Mosley most recently appeared in the Netflix comedy The Out-Laws, starred in the Paramount+ reboot of iCarly alongside Miranda Cosgrove, and recently recurred on NBC’s Lopez vs. Lopez. She is represented by 3 Arts Entertainment and Ginsburg Daniels Kallis.
