Back by popular demand, Four Funny Females, Dallas’ only award winning, all-female stand-up comedy show has consistently been one of the McKinney Performing Arts Centers’ most popular and requested programs.
Four Funny Females is more than a hilarious stand-up comedy show…it’s a sisterhood on a mission to get women laughing again; women who wouldn’t ordinarily step foot in a traditional comedy club.
Every year Four Funny Females attract new audiences from across the state of Texas in large part because they aim not offend but rather to make the themselves and the world around them a little better.
Over the past 12+ years, Four Funny Female has garnered local, regional and national buzz including but not limited to Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, Texas Monthly, CNN, and the NY Times.
***Rated PG13 for adult innuendo & observational comedy.
“It’s fairly rare that a group of women says “Hey, let’s go to a stand-up comedy show.” Just how many jokes about ugly women do you want to hear? Or sit through yet more stories of henpecked husbands or getting your date drunk to get laid? If you deal with screaming kids all day, do you really want to hear overgrown ones yell on stage at night? And how many times can you hear the F-word before it ceases to be funny?”
“So no wonder that the Four Funny Females stand-up show sells out wherever it goes. (The recently reviewed song-and-sketch show, Women Fully Clothed, is much the same.) Women need to laugh and are starved for opportunities that aren’t laced with misogynist pitfalls.”
“But here’s the twist: Once men have daughters, nieces and the like, they’re looking for such opportunities, too. At the final show of Four Funny Females fifth season in McKinney last Saturday, the two fellows sitting on either side of me laughed often and heartily. Even at the jokes about dud dates and disengaged dads—because the women made fun of themselves and their gender just as much.” THEATER JONES, COMEDY REVIEW, 2012
