You’ll see award winning pro comedians plus a few courageous women making their comedy debuts.

You’ll laugh, you’ll lounge, you’ll be glad you’re a lady – but you don’t have to act like one.

(Men are most welcome in the audience. Please join us.)

The backstory

Becky will tell you the whole story when you’re comfortably lounging with a drink in your hand, but the short version is …

When Becky was writing a book about starting, she did a year of saying “YES” to starting ideas. Her first comedy reading in New York turned into her first comedy show in Kansas City.

The show sold out.

Then it happened again and again.
