Women In Comedy Org. Presents: ‘A Love Letter To Myself’- A Fundraiser for Women In Comedy

“A Love Letter To Myself” honors the journey of a woman's quest for self love, acceptance, and empowerment. This 2 hour variety show is packed with laughs and intimate emotional connection with the audience from start to finish. A diverse group of powerful, local, female pillars in our community are invited and tasked to write and read aloud love letters to themselves on stage, intertwined with laugh out loud moments from an all star comedy cast of local performers.

The love letters are written and performed by accomplished women from all walks of life who are making a difference in their communities (business, politics, tech, and more). The letters are mixed in variety style with a huge, hilarious, all -female cast of all star stand-ups, improvisers, musical comedians, and more.. We hope you'll join us!
