Comedy: Skip the Bowl and hang with the ladies

Jan 28, 2009 at 6:00 am

Comedy Caravan is offering an alternative to sitting on a couch, screaming at a television and eating fried globs of chicken parts on Super Bowl Sunday. The “Ladies of Laughter” show this weekend features comedians Melanie Maloy, Barb Neligan and Lady Jae.

Maloy is a regular on Sirius-XM Radio and made the list of E!’s “Top 50 Funniest People” last year. Some of the other highlights in her career: never being slapped after a show and getting asked out by Weird Al Yankovic, she says.

Neligan promises to share her witty observations on growing up Catholic in the South and how being a lesbian may have clashed with that.

The Sunday show starts at 8 p.m., or catch it earlier Wednesday through Saturday at various times. —Sara Havens
