    NEXT SHOW: MAY 14 

    ladieslayover:

    That’s right! We are back at the amazing Layover Tuesday May 14th with a stellar line up. 

    Ladies Loving the Layover….

    image

    Allison Mick  is a fresh face and voice on the comedy scene. It’s lovely to see a young lady swashbuckling through the treacherous seas of humor here in the Bay Area. Give her your heart and your laughs! 

    image

    Jenn Dronsky is adorable. Her unique sense of style sets her apart from the rest of the sartorially handicapped comedians. See what she’s wearing on May 14 when she joins us again to love the Layover. 

    image

    Pippi Lovestocking  is an American treasure. We are lucky that she lives right here in the Bay Area. She’s the poster gal for the City Clinic AND she has amazing jokes. 

    image

    Chris Burns like the logo says, she’s hella thick n’ cute. She’s also hella fuckin’ funny. I’m thrilled to have her back. 

    Aaaand our headliner…..

    image

    Liz Grant is one of the funniest ladies I know. Straight up. She helped me fix a joke that has now become one of my favorite bits. Her humor is transcendent. Come get high on her comedy (even though she doesn’t do that any more) and see what I’m talking ‘bout. 

    image

    Aaaand I’m back as your vivacious host Lydia Popovich represented here by this picture of Dolly Parton holding a kitty because I love kitties especially orange ones and let’s face it…DOLLY IS THE PRETTIEST ONE EVER. 

    Join us for laughs and drinks. Show is free. Drinks are on you. Tips welcomed & appreciated. 

    We start at 8:30pm. 

    See ya in Oakland.

    NEXT SHOW: APRIL 9

    ladieslayover:

    Hello Internet Lovers. 

    The March show was remarkable. Something special happened that night between all of us girls and that room full of people. 

    Huge thanks to all in attendance….The Ladies will never forget you. 

    APRIL 9 is our next opportunity to love one another. 

    Let these Ladies Love you…

    Your ILLUSTRIOUS guest host this month is ….

    KELLY ANNEKEN 

    image


    Kelly is the fucking best. THE BEST. I can’t say enough good things about this incredibly funny woman. She’s the head writer at Hobo Pancakes, the wonder woman behind Femikaze, host of Up Yours, Downstairs podcast, the host of Monday night comedy at Farley’s East aaaand can get her husband to be the Peggy to her Joan on Halloween. I mean come on. Leave some room for the rest of us to underachieve. Dang.  

    Follow her @thefatling

    image

    Clare O’Kane has something special. Something that other girls don’t have. It’s really HARD to put your finger on it without just wanting to wrap your hands around it and tug. It’s dark. It’s mysterious. Discover the mystery & wonder next Tuesday. 

    Follow her @clareoklare

    Karinda Dobbins is a Ladies Love regular. We featured her on the SF edition: Ladies Love the Punch Line and she absolutely smashed it. Her comedy is real, inspired, intelligent and all kinds of other adjectives that still don’t do her justice. Catch her while you can before she flies back to planet awesome. 

    Follow her @KarindaDobbins

    image

    Suzy Vincent  has been disappointing audiences since the gang bang of ‘89, or at least that is what her website says. This is her first appearance at Ladies Love and I’m sure it won’t be her last. 

    Follow her @thesuzyvincent

    image

    Nicole Calasich was recently introduced by a fellow comic as “a friend to everyone.” Here she is with a stranger’s dog. Instant friends. That’s how she rolls. Let her befriend you. 

    Follow her @calasich

    image

    Gina Ritter  was one of the very first ladies to love the Layover. She’s finally back to delight us again with her tales of cranky mom-dom and stories so inappropriate you’ll blush. I can’t wait. 

    Follow her @GinaRitter

    Aaaand of course there’s me. Unfortunately I will NOT be in attendance this month. I will be performing at the San Francisco Punch Line. If you are in SF please join us for Comedy Stylings hosted and conceptualized by Mary Van Note. The concept is simple - Comics telling jokes in their favorite clothes. Genius right? 

    In celebration, here is a picture of one of my fav pair of shoes.

    Drew Harmon: Insight, Tacos.: Show Tonight

    drewharmoncomedy:

    FYI - tonight I’m hosting a pretty kick-ass show that also happens to be in a Christian bookstore and is what we in the biz call a “Clean” show. That means all shits will be doodies, all cocks will be wee-wee’s and all double-penetration raw rough anal will be “hug sessions.” Wanna see this…

    The Christian bookstore across the street from the Layover is having clean comedy shows over the weekend. Check it out!

    Corrections

    Our Jan. 23 comedy preview, “The Return of the Comics,” stated that are no SF Sketchfest shows happening in the East Bay. In fact, there is one happening at The Layover on February 5.
