5:00 PM (Pacific)

Get ready to laugh...a lot!  Jennie McNulty’s stand-up has taken her all over the world. With a lightning-quick wit and a playfully sarcastic style, Jennie’s humor is fun! Her comedy makes you think; it’s never mean-spirited and it really makes you laugh. Take a plethora of unique life experiences (Doing surgery in a research lab at The University of Michigan; playing women’s professional tackle football and riding through the streets of Baghdad in a Humvee to entertain the troops) and add a love and mastery of improvisation to the mix and you’ll see why The New England Blade called her, “One of the premiere comedians in the country.”
Jennie has been a hit on TV and in Films. The last three months, Jennie has been busy with her online show, “InHouse Comedy Chat.”

FILM SCREENING:
LAUGHING MATTERS

Saturday, July 11
6:00 PM (Pacific)
8:00 PM (Central)
9:00 PM (Eastern)

Join us for this nostalgic screening of Andrea Meyerson’s first film, the award-winning documentary-comedy, LAUGHING MATTERS.
Kate Clinton, Marga Gomez, Karen Williams, and Suzanne Westenhoefer pioneered lesbian stand-up comedy. Playing small clubs in the 1980s and early ‘90s, they used the realities of being lesbian to challenge and charm audiences—all while hitting viewers where it counts—in the funny bone.
LAUGHING MATTERS alternates between interviews with the four comedians and their live stand-up performances. Each comedian has her own unique look and style as well as stories of what it was like to be “out” onstage long before it was chic.
“An uproarious, comic celebration of lesbian America and its pre-eminent comediennes.”

Marieann Meringolo is a native New Yorker who grew up on the songs of the Great American Songbook. She has been called “One of the circuit’s most powerful singers” and Time Out New York claimed, “If k.d. lang’s DNA were to get whipped together with Barbra Streisand’s in a genetics lab specializing in divas, the result might well be Marieann Meringolo.” She is a MAC Award-Winning Recording Artist as well as a Back Stage Bistro Award-Winner for “Outstanding Vocalist.” And, noted by The Wall Street Journal, “If you don’t do it brilliantly it isn’t worth doing at all…Ms. Meringolo’s powerhouse interpretation makes full use of the dramatic Bergman lyric.”
She was recently inducted into New York famed Friars Club.
