Fasten your seatbelts! Here are four female comics with attitude: Andrea Abbate, a favorite guest on Bill Maher's Politically Incorrect, finds it fun to be insensitive on stage in a time when everyone is so concerned with being "politically correct". Felicia Michaels, a.k.a. "Pottymouth", a $100,000 winner on Star Search, has since been seen on just about every comedy show ever aired. She won the "Best Stand Up Comic, Female" award in 1999 from the American Comedy Awards. Sheila Kay could definitely not be described as demure, coquettish, or dainty. She could be described as overbearing, blunt, and bawdy. Carole, known as "The Ivory Girl with an Attitude", has been seen by millions who have enjoyed her stand-up routine in "Crazy Girls" at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. For Adults Only. Explicit language. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.
How Felicia Sees It: I came into the world an Army brat. Moved here, moved there, landing at the corner of trailer park and military housing. I learned how to load a gun, dodge a social worker, and make an exit plan – before I could even drive. My escape came via the doors of a strip joint coined the Peppermint Lounge. It’s there that I met a comic, became a comic, won this and won that. I pounded the road hard, picked up a camera, did beaucoup TV, married my manager, then quit the biz.
As a musical and math prodigy, Felicia Day was not used to failing. She expected that being a Hollywood actress would be as easy, but eventually figured out that she had to carve her own way. After many false starts Day created the hit web series, The Guild which used her love of gaming as the basis, and became an Internet rock star. Day walks Michael through how she made her own success on her terms, and what happens when you get what you want.
