Celebrate Mother's Day at Dena Blizzard's ONE FUNNY MOTHER Off-Broadway
Another Mother's Day is right around the corner! Forget the flowers, the chocolate -- and even brunch -- and treat your mom to an evening of laughs she will not soon forget.
ONE FUNNY MOTHER, the hilarious new solo comedy, written, performed and starring comedian Dena Blizzard will be the best Mother's Day present ever!
Currently playing an open-ended engagement at New World Stages(340 West 50th Street, between 8th & 9th Avenues), there are performances on Thursdays at 7pm and Saturdays at 8pm.
ONE FUNNY MOTHER stars comedian, former Miss New Jersey, and married mother of three, Dena Blizzard, in her hilarious solo comedy show about the trials and tribulations of motherhood and marriage. ONE FUNNY MOTHER has toured the United States and was recently named "Best One Woman Show" at the 2015 United Solo Festival in New York City.
"Throughout the year mom's struggle to keep their kids homework, after school events and birthday parties in perfect order, while trying desperately to find quality time with their husband, leaving most women exhausted and physically drained," explains Ms. Blizzard. "My show celebrates all the things that moms do but with a comedic twist. In addition, I open the door to great conversations about what we, as moms, can do to stop the judging and the shaming and start celebrating our failures as moms by sharing our stories. I welcome all to join the conversation by sharing your stories about motherly imperfection using#motherhoodmatters and come laugh your way to sanity."
ONE FUNNY MOTHER is dedicated to helping bring humor back to Motherhood and no one needs that more than parents of children with Special Needs and Learning Disabilities, like Dena's daughter, Brooke, who has struggled with ADHD, learning disabilities and immobilizing anxiety.
To that end, the show is offering a "Buy One, Get One" at $32.50 ticket offer through the official website -- www.OneFunnyMother.com (Use promo code FMBOGO316).
ONE FUNNY MOTHER is a great night out that focuses on laughing your way through parenthood, changing perspectives and encouraging parents to share their stories of failure so we all feel a little bit more normal.
