All-Female Comedy Show BROAD COMEDY Begins at The SoHo Playhouse Tonight
Due to popular demand, YouTube sensation Katie Goodman's Broad Comedywill return to the SoHo Playhouse (sohoplayhouse.com) beginning January 29, 2018.

Broad Comedy played the SoHo Playhouse last May in a limited three-show run and is being welcomed back for an official Off-Broadway run, playing Mondays at 7:30pm through March 26 at the Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam Street). Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by visiting www.sohoplayhouse.com
Ever wonder what would happen if Kate McKinnon and Samantha Bee had a child and hired Tim Minchin as the manny? We have the answer! Bringing you politically savvy comedy since 2001, Broad Comedy is a nationally touring, award-winning, all-women musical comedy and sketch troupe that is made up of five irreverent, hilarious, and ridiculously talented women to whom nothing is sacred-except an unflinching and uproarious look at our culture. Just when you need them most, the Broads are here-as Gloria Steinem said about them-to "help you laugh at the bastards." ...Though you might think twice before bringing your conservative mother-in-law!
Broad Comedy has been called Los Angeles Times Best Bet, winner of Best of the Vancouver Fringe Festival, "Laugh-out-loud, knee-slapping, roll in the aisles funny... well worth putting on your 'must see' list... side-splitting, provocative, and politically pointed lunacy." -The Vibe, Los Angeles; "Exuberant! Colossal entertainment value, induced by the joyously vulgar, smart writing and skillfully executed showmanship. Katie Goodman is a multi-talented, femme-extraordinaire!" -Los Angeles Examiner; "If this irreverent, giddy, snarky, perky collage of satire, sketch comedy, and cheerleading doesn't make you laugh, then either you are incapable of laughter, or you are Dick Cheney. Or, of course, both." -The Boston Globe; "Fierce, female, fabulous and funny!" -Eve Ensler; "Broad Comedy will help you laugh at the bastards thus lengthening your life and shortening theirs." -Gloria Steinem.
A YouTube sensation, Goodman has turned some heads with over three million views, from her viral "I Didn't F*ck It Up," to the anthem "Sorry Babe, You're a Feminist," to her take on Park Slope life with her notorious video "Sh!t Park Slope Parents Say."

Katie's new album Halfway Closer To Dead-a follow-up to the highly acclaimed I Didn't F*ck It Up-is a feisty (and NSFW!) tour de force of songs from rock to rap to mock-opera. This second hilarious album is smart, political, and deeply personal with songs ranging from her YouTube viral hit "If You're Homophobic, You're Probably Gay" to the irreverent "Boobs Look Funny When You're Having Sex" to slam dunks taking on The Tea Party and climate change deniers. Plus, yeah, sex jokes. Because, it's Katie.
