Side Splitters Announces January Line-Up


Appearing this weekend: MARYELLEN HOOPER January 10 - 13

A veteran in the world of stand-up, Maryellen Hooper's comedy has taken her from clubs and colleges to theaters and television. She's appeared on "The Dennis Miller Show", "The Martin Short Show", "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and has had her own ½ hour special on Comedy Central called "Lounge Lizards". In 1998, the comedy industry awarded Maryellen "Female Comedian of the Year" at the American Comedy Awards.

A physical, story-teller, Maryellen's act is an ever-evolving story about her life as a woman, wife and mother. Never crude or offensive, her accounts of life's little annoyances leave audiences exhausted from laughter. From home repairs on her family's "Fixer Upper" to colicky babies, no story is too sacred to share with her audiences. Maryellen just taped her latest stand-up special, "Stinky Flowers" which will air this fall. The special is based on her stories about Wifedom and Mommyhood from her hugely popular blog, Stinky Flowers.

Appearing next weekend: DOM IRRERA January 18 - 19

"Fuhgeddaboudit!" Dom, a two-time CableACE Award winner, is back for one weekend only! Nominated, six times for an American Comedy Award, Dom Irrera's stand-up material was honed in a multi-generational Italian household in South Philadelphia with his mother, sister, grandmother, uncles and cousins all under one very big roof. A great-grandmother even lived across the street. Together there were three floors and four generations of family.

As seen on Comedy Central's Top 100 Comedians of All Time, The Aristocrats, The Big Lebowski, The King of Queens, Yes Dear, Dr. Katz, the list can go on.

This Philadelphia native is one of the most highly requested comedians at Side Splitters. A man of many faces and voices, Dom will not disappoint. This show will sell out, so get your tickets early!
