Comedians Tammy Pescatelli and Karen Rontowski are The Ladies? from Jersey this season at The Lyric Theatre in an evening of clean stand-up comedy perfect for the whole family. A hilarious female duo, The Ladies? from Jersey bring a little bit of the Garden State to the Sunshine State in a stand-up comedy performance unlike any other.
The Ladies? from Jersey star Tammy Pescatelli grew up in a big, wild Italian family outside of Cleveland, Ohio. The stand-up comic won Comedy Central’s Stand Up Showdown in 2010, and was a finalist on the second and third seasons of Last Comic Standing. Pescatelli has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the View, and co-created, produced, and wrote a reality TV show called A Stand Up Mother, which documents her own life as a wife, mother, and comedian. In 2014, Pescatelli was chosen by Jenny McCarthy to be a part of the comedian’s latest comedy special “Dirty Sexy Funny.” Joining Tammy Pescatelli as the other “Lady from Jersey” is Karen Rontowski. Known for her fast-paced wit and clean, optimistic humor, Rontowski has been performing stand-up comedy for over 20 years. A regular on the Bob and Tom Show, Rontowski has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman and Live at Gotham. Karen is also a tarot reader, paranormal investigator, and all around ghost hunter, and likes to bring a bit of the supernatural to every performance.
This season at The Lyric Theatre, get ready for The Ladies? from Jersey as they team up for an all-star stand-up comedy performance. With Pescatelli’s Italian roots and Rontowski’s supernatural obsessions, the show is bound to get a little wacky.
