All the comics from Lisa´s roster are hip, sexy, fun and hysterical! Stand up comedy has never looked so good.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE? Individually, these comics work colleges and clubs across the country. PFW features an amazing line up of five of these women doing their BEST 20 minutes. The tone of the show is sexy, irreverent, & smart. These comics are pros who have been working with each other for years. The chemistry between Lisa, the comics & the audience is unlike any other show out there.
WHO ARE THE FANS? Women love it because it´s smart, honest, hysterical and relatable. Young boys love it because it´s sexy. Men love it because it´s genuinely funny. Young girls love it because they all want to be us. Gay men love it because they all want to be us. Grandmas love it because it´s not "too" dirty. Couples love it because it´s interactive. Feminists love it because we´re not self deprecating and Scientologists love it because were not on medication. (at least not while performing)
