Join me and some of Kansas City’s funniest women for an evening of jokes, stories, and salacious secrets. 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

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

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

You bought ALL the tickets, and said “DO IT AGAIN!”

Then COVID said “Not so fast, Missy!”

Now I’m saying “YES, let’s restart – more, better, braver!”
