Former Last Comic Standing Contestants Team Up for Every Woman Comedy Tour

Comedian Michelle Wolf might’ve received mixed reviews for the verbal beatdown she unleashed at last week’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but she earned some nonpartisan props from attendees when she said, “It’s 2018 and I’m a woman, so you cannot shut me up!” It’s an empowering message that female comedians like Aida Rodriguez, April Macie and Emma Willmann are probably taking to heart as they travel the politically divided country on The Every Woman Comedy Tour.

Making a stop at the Tobin Center on Saturday, the trio will bring their own unique brand of stand-up to the stage with only a couple of things on their agenda: to be heard loud and clear and to make people laugh. Both goals are easily attainable for the women, all three of whom boast impressive resumes in the industry. Rodriguez was a finalist on the eighth season of the reality show Last Comic Standing as was Macie, who appeared on season four. Willmann made her late-night TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2016 and has performed on Fuse’s Uproarious and AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live. As Willmann explained on Colbert, if she says her name too fast, it sounds like she’s saying, “I’m a woman,” which, like Wolf, is the perfect statement to make when you want an audience to sit up and listen.



$25-$49.50, Sat May 12, 8pm, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org.
