The Dangerous Dames of Comedy
Starring Poppy Champlin and Sonya White
Saturday, April 27 at 7 & 9 p.m.
Poppy Champlin is one of the most quick-witted comedians working coast-to-coast today. Besides Poppy’s deep comedic chops, she has a good voice that she puts to use during each performance. She erupts onto the stage, fearless, upbeat and energetic spitting out jokes, quips, songs, impressions and even birdcalls. Poppy’s shows can be described as spin art, “No two alike.” Her stand-up pedigree is extensive: from being the winner of America’s Funniest Real Woman on The Joan Rivers Show, then featured on Entertainment Tonight. Her television appearances include Showtime, LOGO, Comics Unleashed, Comedy Central, VH-1, HBO and Oprah. Poppy’s observational style of humor tackles tough subjects with ease. In this comedienne’s hands we can laugh at life’s most formidable perils... and laughter that ravages fear is the best kind of all.
Sonya White serves her funny stand-up routine with northern flavor and a southern accent. Her observational comedy is enhanced by dead-on impersonations and appropriate sound effects. Her comedy is based on real-life experiences and her fond-but-irreverent interactions with friends, family and the world at large.
