Mommy Comedy: Lisa Perlman & Carolyn Castiglia
Nine months and no wine? Lisa Blythe Perlman often jokes that pregnancy is like being in AA and the fetus is her sponsor. A stand- up comic and writer who is 7 ½ months pregnant with her second child, Lisa has been performing comedy at country clubs, festivals, fund-raisers and colleges throughout the country for over a decade. Finishing her book on the life-changer that is motherhood, she is writing Mommy-Phobia to show women that it’s okay to have a little prepartum depression on the road to becoming a mom. Come see Lisa’ s stand-up act and make your cute belly bop up and down as you laugh at her take on marriage, pregnancy and motherhood.
