There is a required drink pay but it's not too expensive. I had one soda and I was thirsty anyway.

I wore slacks, a sweater and boots. It was chilly due to the holiday season. Inside it was warm and comfy though..

The comedy was not very good--particularly the male emcee who had very weak jokes.

More Information



“Hottest Women in Comedy” features some of the best female comedians seen on Letterman, Conan, Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel Live and HBO, and all are regular performers in comedy clubs in New York.

Headliner Laurie Kilmartin is a former writer and frequent guest on Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd w/ Colin Quinn”. Laurie’s recent television appearances include: “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, and “Late, Late Show w/ Craig Ferguson”. Known for her caustic wit, unique political and social commentary, Laurie is one of the top female comics in the country, leading to her numerous Comedy Central appearances on “Premium Blend” and “USO Tour”.

“Hottest Women in Comedy” also features Queens native Mary Dimino, who has appeared on “Late Show w/ David Letterman”, “Late Night w/ Conan O’Brien” and HBO’s “Chris Rock Show”. Mary is one of New York’s most like-able comedians. Growing up in an Italian neighborhood with her Sicilian parents, Mary has an angelic face that looks like “I would bake you fresh cookies”, but when she opens her mouth, her real Nu Yawk accent sounds like “I’m gonna break youse knee-caps.”

Other comics on “Hottest Women in Comedy” include Calise Hawkins (seen on last year’s “Last Comic Standing”) and Lori Sommer (Gotham Comedy Club).

“Hottest Women in Comedy” is hosted by ‘token male’ Bill Michaels (seen on HBO’s “Sopranos” and Comedy Central).
