.Comedian Laurie Kilmartin Takes the Stage at Rooster T. Feathers

When Laurie Kilmartin lost her mother to COVID-19, she kept doing what she does best: writing jokes. It was a devastating situation, but for Kilmartin, it was a chance to offer wry humor in a real-time tragedy. The comedian has had a long career turning the tragic into comedy, recently making headlines for her take on the Roe v. Wade leak, saying she would “make sweet love” to the person who leaked the brief. The long-time writer for Conan O’Brien and former Top 10 finalist on Last Comic Standing begins a four-night run at Rooster T Feathers this Thursday.
