Lady Laughs Comedy is proud to announce it will be returning to Madison for its third year. Funny women from all over the country, Canada and beyond will flock to the Isthmus once again for five days of HER-larity.
Within the last year, the nationally touring comedian, Madison’s own Dina Nina Martinez, has forged a path for women comedians with a tour entitled “I 💗 Funny Women!”, Stand Up Classes, the introduction of a 2 day festival in Wichita, KS — and she has no plans to slow down her quest of building a Lady Comedy Empire. “I like to think of it as building a Amazonian type society but instead of weapons forged by fire we use our wit and humor,” said Martinez. “Women are a force to be reckoned with. We’ve been so underestimated for so long and now we are poised for a takeover of comedy scenes, media and world domination…uh, I’ve said too much.”
As in past years, the festival will be staged at the amazing Plan B and Art In, but will also add the acclaimed Barrymore Theatre to its list of venues for Saturday night. This year will be just as diverse and inclusive as before with “He’s Not A Lady” all male showcase, an all new “They’re Not Necessarily A Lady” featuring non-binary comics, and female produced, written, filmed and starred short films and podcasts. It’s five days chocked full of funny women!
Submissions open August 10th for Stand Up, Improv, Sketch, Storytelling and Digital Content. Tickets go on sale August 15th at LadyLaughsComedy.com. Sponsorships are still available, enquire at firstname.lastname@example.org
