"Hayley Raphael is a nice girl from Queens who is upbeat, positive, enthusiastic and witty" - Poppower.com for VH1's "Why Am I Still Single?"
Armed with wit and a wink, Hayley brings a healthy splash of chutzpah to everything she does as only a native New Yorker can!
You may have already seen her as Maria Pinnuziato in the long-running Off-Broadway show, "My Big Gay Italian Wedding" on VH1 as a co-host on "Why Am I Still Single," or performing original sketches & characters!
With strong theatrical roots, Hayley also has worked with Disney & Nickelodeon, and as a 5 feet human woman played mostly children on stage.

"I had the privilege of working with Hayley Off-Broadway in "My Big Gay Italian Wedding," I am the Dance Captain of the show, Hayley was cast as a cover for the show. Often times we are given very little rehearsal time to put someone in the show, and the actors are tasked with learning choreography very quickly. Hayley came into rehearsal more than prepared. She had retained most of the choreography that was taught at the audition and picked up the rest very quickly. Not only was she fast, but she is also a doll to work with. It would be a treat to get to work with her again."
