This show won Best of Fringe Festival TWICE and was recorded at 2 sold out live shows!

Infertility, miscarriage, and abortion aren’t exactly a barrel of laughs… until you hear Mandee tell it. Developed to standing ovations at Fringe festivals across the Midwest, this dirty, irreverent, and deeply compelling show paints a picture of two women fighting for what they want, despite what their bodies have to say about it.

1 woman. 2 shows. 3 stage cameras. 4-ever on tape.

On November 11, 2023, we made Louisville comedy history and made a stand for body autonomy by recording Mandee’s first ever comedy special for streaming distribution right here in Louisville at a gala style red carpet fancy smancy event with 2 sold out shows in a state where abortion is illegal. ,

“…This show did make me understand what women go through related to the choices about our bodies. And it also helped me, it gave me actually some new insight into things I don’t think I was even conscious that I’m dealing with regarding bodily autonomy, regarding pressure from other people to live a certain way, look a certain way….”

“…I feel like any woman can relate to this. Some men too. It’s so timely and so funny. I laughed so hard, but also I felt something deeper and cried; it was amazing. It was surprising and so good….”
