Ladies of Laughter is the biggest platform for women in comedy.  Before 1992, Mary Jo Wobker was instrumental in giving countless women their start in stand-up comedy.  After her sudden death, her good friend, Peggy Boyce created a women's stand-up comedy competition in her name.  Now, funny women around the world apply and see their careers reach the stratosphere.  The "Funny & Fabulous Show" includes the national professional winners.
