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.
