Ladies of Laughter Funny and Fabulous

Ladies of Laughter Funny and Fabulous

This summer, comedy producers are searching for the New York area’s funniest female variety artists to take part in the Ladies of Laughter Variety Artist Host Search for comedy bookings and publicity culminating at the Cutting Room on
Wednesday, August 21st at 8:00pm during the Ladies of Laughter Funny & Fabulous Show hosted by national headliner, Kevin Meaney. The show will also feature winners from previous years and serve as a fundraiser for fellow New York-area comedienne, Jodi Weiner, who is suffering from esophageal cancer.

Since it was first introduced into comedy clubs in 1999, the Ladies of Laughter contest has served as the launching pad for women in comedy with past winners receiving cash
prizes, comedy bookings and major publicity. Past events have been held at major comedy clubs, Atlantic City casinos and even Madison Square Garden. This past year, the contest has added the Funny & Fabulous Tour with past winners visiting major theatres around the country to standing-room crowds.

“We would like to add a funny lady to the Tour that has a unique or unusual talent such as singing, dancing or even juggling, and could serve as our host,” said Executive Producer, Peggy Boyce.

A percentage of proceeds from this year’s events will help benefit comedienne, Jodi Weiner, who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer last year. Jodi is a respected comedienne
who hails from Massapequa, Long Island and is a regular staple at major comedy clubs and casinos.
