What You'll Get
Before scalpels were invented, comedy was used to open up incisions during appendectomies and kidney transplants. Split your sides with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to Four Funny Females at the McKinney Performing Arts Center, located in the Historic Collin County Courthouse (a $20.50 value). Seats are assigned by the MPAC on a first-come, first-serve basis at will call, which opens at 7 p.m. on show night. Choose between two dates:
- The 8 p.m. show on Saturday, February 19
- The 8 p.m. show on Saturday, March 12
Listed as a don’t-miss event by the Plano Profile, Four Funny Females garners guffaws with its stars’ distinct takes on life. Showcasing four unique comic sensibilities, like the Beatles or Three Men and a Baby, the 90-minute standup show features a tech geek, southern belle, brash blonde, and off-kilter brunette commenting on an array of life experiences, from online dating and religion to talking squirrels. Laura Bartlett, producer and creator of the show, is joined onstage by Backdoor Comedy Club owner Linda Stogner and Improv's "Funniest Comic in Dallas" finalists Jodi Hadsell and Sherry Belle, ensuring that audiences are in fully qualified funnymaking hands.
Before the show, meander through the downtown area, where boutiques and restaurants offer Spanish tapas, wine, nostalgic candy, and gourmet popcorn to tame tempestuous torsos. The McKinney Performing Arts Center, housed in a former courtroom, offers balcony and main floor seating to accommodate hordes of humor hunters and comedy crowd surfers.
