2017 was a banner year for Cummings. She made her directorial debut with a film called The Female Brain, a neurology comedy based on the book of the same title by Louann Brizendine. She also published her biographical self-help book I’m Fine...And Other Lies, a funny self-help book with stories about addiction, co-dependency, and trauma that Cummings finds too embarrassing to tell on stage. With accumulated knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths, Cummings’ book promises to be a mesmerizing read of discovery.
