Metaphors for laughter are often surprisingly violent, from busting a gut to splitting your sides to tumbling down the jagged face of Joke Mountain. Break a funny bone with this GrouponLive deal to see Southern Fried Chickie at Sons of Hermann Hall.

Hailing from Saltillo, Mississippi—or what she calls "the trailer-park suburb of Tupelo"—Christy McBrayer is just one woman. Yet in Southern Fried Chickie, she dons the attire, accents, and aloofness of 10 characters whose antics and eccentrics she's pinched off family and friends from her hometown. When McBrayer first staged her one-woman show in Los Angeles, Variety praised her "captivating ability to lose herself within the personas of some truly memorable down-home folk." Her colorful, yet dark repertoire includes a friend who brags of being a co-homecoming queen, and an aunt who gossips and chain-smokes despite being in the presence of her baby.

As the show progresses, the individual characters begin to form a three-dimensional community that's recognizable both for its comedic dysfunction and its heart-breaking realities. The bluegrass strains from a "redneck Greek chorus" tinge the play with hymnals and tunes from musical desperadoes such as the Eagles and Hank Williams Jr. Earlier in 2012, Austin360.com praised the overall product as being "undoubtedly entertaining for anyone who grew up in small-town South."
