Coming to the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach on April 22-23!
WEST PALM BEACH, FL — Fresh on the heels of their third hit SHOWTIME special, FUNNY WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE today announced a spring 2022 U.S. touring including a stop in West Palm Beach at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts on April 22-23. Tickets are on sale now at kravis.org or by calling 561.832.7469.
FUNNY WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women who have seen it all. They have a lot to say, and they say it hysterically!
“I created this show to give opportunities for women over 50. For far too long, being of a ‘certain age’ has been considered the end of a career. I’m helping to change that,” explains creator Carole Montgomery.
FUNNY WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE premiered on SHOWTIME in 2019. The special was the highest-rated premiere standup show for the network, and made history as the first special to feature six female comedians over the age of 50. It was followed by two more hit specials in 2020 and 2022. The spring tour will star comedians CAROLE MONTGOMERY, LEIGHANN LORD, MONIQUE MARVEZ and JULIA SCOTTI.
