Cravens created/wrote/starred in a two-woman show called “Freak Like Tennessee” that sold out its entire run, including the Comedy Central stage in Los Angeles and the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Cravens has also done voice over work in animations and commercials. She can currently be seen in CVS commercials.
