The Ladies of Laughter Funny & Fabulous Tour includes winners and the best talent from the Ladies of Laughter annual national competition.

What started out as an annual videotape comedy competition in New York to honor comedian Mary Jo Wobker, who helped so many other female comedians break into the stand-up world, has grown in comedy clubs and venues around the tri-state area, including Atlantic City casinos, Caesars, Madison Square Garden, and now SOPAC!

Now known as “The Careerbuilder for Women in Comedy,” previous competition participants have included Amy Schumer, Tammy Pescatelli, and Big Bang Theory star Melissa Rauch, among many others.   In 2018, Carol Burnett accepted the first ever “Ladies of Laughter Spirit Award” established to honor those women who have inspired others to enter the competitive field of comedy.

Ladies of Laughter (LOL) comes to SOPAC through through its Creative Community Brain Trust’s work with comedian Liz Glazer.  This is the final show LOL will at SOPAC during the 2023-24 Season.
