    Ladies Love the Layover: NEXT SHOW: September 11

    ladieslayover:


    Women ARE funny!

    NEVER FORGET! 

    Ladies loving the Layover this month….


    Queenie TT is pure energy and sass. She wows audiences with her signature tales of plus-sized sisterhood. 

    Follow her @queeniettcomedy

    Alison Stevenson is 5 feet of pure style and sarcasm. Her dubious, insightful wit is the catalyst for uncontrollable giggles. 

    Follow her @JustAboutGlad

    Nicole Calasich  enjoys cats and doing comedy in the woods….just kidding guys she prefers doing comedy indoors at night like the rest of us. 

    Follow her @Calasich


    Amy Miller makes me want to be a better person. She’s the nicest lady in comedy aaaand one of the funniest. Her blend of storytelling and anecdotal humor delights me from the inside out. 

    Follow her @amymiller


    Gina Ritter has four sons and is still alive to talk about it. That’s why she calls herself “The Momster.” And she does talk about it, no holds barred…and it’s HILARIOUS. 

    Follow her @GinaRitter



    Aaaaand your headliner this month: 


    Clare O’Kane has a smirk and a twinkle in her eye that makes you wonder if she’s gonna steal your wallet or your heart. Either way, you end up kinda stoked because she’s so fucking charming you are just happy to be around her. 

    Follow her @clareoklare 



    And as always your host, Lydia Popovich represented here by this picture of an iced oatmeal cookie covered hash.
