The Obama Girls of Comedy return to DC to ring in the Inauguration. We will be teaming up with Comedy Against Evil to present one fabulous night of hilarity to hail to the new chief. Come celebrate a new era of hope and change as we all have a ball and bring sexy back to the Democrats. 

A few months back, The Obama Girls of Comedy, a group of comedians hit the road to raise awareness that women were voting for Obama in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia and North Carolina. The group is made up of stellar women comedians who have appeared on Comedy Central, VH-1 and network TV. Throughout the pre-election season, we traveled to 5 states and raised a ruckus. We had our share of highs and lows and feast or famine as we ran out of gas, were mistaken for hookers, played at a few bars straight out of The Accused, volunteered for the campaign and witnessed the most awkward karaoke on earth. On November 4, victory was just particularly sweet when all the states we visited went blue. Yep that was us. 

Meanwhile their friend and comedy cohort, Jeff Kreisler did his part to spread the word on Obama. Touring Red, Blue, and Purple states, Comedy Against Evil brought laughter to voters in cities from Seattle to Dallas, Cleveland to LA, Houston, Cincinatti, Dayton, Gainesville and more! Along the way, we made many friends, had countless laughs, and twice escaped lynching. We didn’t change the world, but we had fun. Now a new, ever-shifting group of concerned performers picks up the pieces and continues the fight. Award winners and accomplished professionals, today’s brightest satirists will share their “fair and balanced”* perspectives on the issues of the day. 

On Sunday, January 18 the two shows join forces at DC Arts in Adams Morgan, featuring comedian and writer Jeff Kreisler (Comedy Central’s Indecision 2008, BBC & Bill Hicks Spirit Award Winner), The Goddess Perlman (Last Comic Standing, Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad), Hilary Schwartz (XM Radio) Elon James White (Sirius, This Week in Blackness) Scott Blakeman (Comedy Central, Letterman) and others. We are changing hearts and minds, one laugh at a time.

How did we do? Electoral Map Update 10-30-08

The Obama Girls of Comedy went to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, DC, North Carolina and Virginia. The shows were absolutely terrific. You are probably wondering if we made a difference. You Betcha! This project was about using our collective creativity to raise awareness. And if you look at this map, Pennsylvania is no longer a swing state, Obama is up 12 points. He’s ahead 4 points in Ohio, 1 point in Indiana, 9 points in Virginia and 6 points in North Carolina. You are so welcome America, not a problem at all. Florida even got off the Straight BS Express. Thanks Big Schlep!

At this point, things look good for Barack but I don’t trust those faulty machines, butterfly ballots and self-entitled Republicans. Please call up any relatives, friends from camp, old college roommates in Ohio, Indiana and Florida, tell them sincerely why you are voting for Obama and you too can make a difference. Join us in NYC on Nov. 4th as we watch the results. What’s next for the Obama Girls of Comedy? We’ll see… The Karl Rove Pink Ship Show, perhaps?
