Four Funny Females Showcase Eclectic Mix of Humor at Slapsticks Comedy Loft

What do a high brow British humorist, an Indian college student, a Italian Catholic rabble rouser, and a soft spoken teacher have in common? They are all part of the "Four Funny Females" comedy performance at Slapsticks Comedy Loft on Saturday, May 31 at 8:00 pm.

"There has never been a more eclectic mix of feminine comedic viewpoints gathered on one Pittsburgh stage," states Slapsticks owner, David Kaye. "It's rare that two female comics appear at a comedy club on one night in this town. An all female comedy performance is practically unheard of. Stand up comedy is traditionally a male sport in Pittsburgh, but the women on this show prove that they can write and perform as well, if not better than most of the guys."

"Eclectic mix" may be an understatement. Subhah Agarwal is a Carnegie Mellon University student whose parents immigrated from India. She has been performing comedy for over a year now. In this short time, she has risen quickly, performing at major clubs across Pittsburgh and Chicago. Drawing on her unique experiences growing up second generation Indian and female in America, she provides a creative perspective into every day situations while sharing personal experiences and opinions.

Sally Chopping lives in Pittsburgh but when you hear her crisp English accent you will think she just flew in from Buckingham Palace. She is a professional public speaker who gives keynote speeches on using humor for stress relief, listening skills and public speaking techniques. Her advice about improving public speaking skills has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette quoted Sally as saying: "Public speaking is more fun than sex." After that she got emails from dating agencies saying she needed help.

Nance Marshall is a middle-aged grade school teacher who leads a mild mannered life by day, but at night she takes off her babooshka and slings good natured barbs about dating, relationships, single life and her weight. Nance will make you laugh and think about how much you love your aunt Martha at the same time.

Gab Bonesso carries full bags of X-generation angst and Italian Catholic guilt on stage and dumps the contents into the lap of her audience. Feisty and ready to scrap, Gab prowls the stage vehemently defending her beliefs with expletives and exclamation points.

Be a part of Pittsburgh history and experience this truly liberating event. "Four Funny Females", it's like watching The View, Oprah, and Saturday Night Live all rolled into one hilarious live performance.
