Balancing kids, work and marriage can be quite a challenge but two Maryland women have found a way to make it all funny! Join The Whoopie Queen Cyndy Bragg and Laurie Forster, The Stand-up Sommelier (aka The Wine Coach) along with their all-female troupe as they present “Makin’ Whoopie: Comedy about Wine & Sex…the Ultimate Pairing” set to take place on Saturday, April 28 at the NightCat Nightclub in , MD. Shows take place at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.. Tickets can be purchased at www.nightcatmusic.com.
Ms. Bragg and Ms. Forster are amateur comediennes and recently graduated from Five Minutes to Funny class at the DC Improv where they both took their everyday experiences and turned them into comedy routines to express themselves in a new way. The rest of the cast is rounded out by comics Tracey Allred, Jessica Trimble, Kathy Juda and Jen Tisdale. The show is sponsored by Hair o’The Dog Wine & Spirits, Peacock Restaurant & Lounge and Beautiful Discovery Salon in Easton as well as nationally recognized financial coach Barbara Stanny.
By day, Cyndy Bragg is a stay-at-home mom who bakes whoopee pies and by night, she takes to the stage to perform at various locations in and around NY, Baltimore and Washington DC. Having worked as a producer on short film projects with some famous and funny people, she always had a love of comedy and a desire to perform. So, when she moved to suburbia with her husband and two small children, she turned everyday events into something to laugh about. She wanted to share this love of fun and frolic with other women which is what inspired her to found the Makin’ Whoopie comedy shows.
“ Trust me, I really enjoy baking and I really enjoy my family, but a hectic schedule filled with running to the store, changing diapers and making sure the house is still in one piece can be daunting. I like making people laugh and quite frankly, it reduces my blood pressure so it’s a win-win ,” said Ms. Bragg, sarcastically.
Laurie Forster, a professional wine educator, author and radio show host, originally took comedy classes as a way in which to formulate a fresh approach to her seminars and programs. She brings her wit, charm and sharp sense of humor to the stage as she discusses being married to a professional chef and the challenges of balancing a career, a young daughter, and her “wifely duties.”
“Working and having a family in these times can be stressful. My husband and I are constantly juggling many things and sometimes the only way to get through the day is laughter. Ok wine first and THEN laughter,” said Laurie Forster, The Wine Coach.
