Voted the hottest women in comedy* these witty wenches won’t disappoint. *based on a survey conducted in McDonald’s a 3 am; a young man who was passed out into a McFlurry, who had never attended a comedy club, said so. “ Hmm, sounds like two very interesting ladies are running the show and at only €5 it has to be worth a look-see!
