Hi all,

A friend and neighbor of mine happens to be not only an Army Wife but also a professional comedienne. I've managed to provide her with a few stories that have been worked into her material...(margarine skating).

Anyway, she has a national special airing on CBC on Monday 8 Oct.

Here is the info she sent me:

Hi all,

Heads up, my first NATIONAL RADIO COMEDY SPECIAL will be airing on Monday October 8, 2007 at 12:00pm.

That's 12:00pm across the country on CBC Radio One, and yes 12:30pm for those on da' Rock.

You're listening for "I'm an Army Wife...Now What?"

Find your local frequency or listen on-line if you want:  www.cbc.ca

A big thanks to all who made this happen, I can't say it enough times, you're all the best cheer leaders, supporters, interviewees, audience, friends, family, etc. etc. etc.

Tell everyone and have a good laugh!

Cheers,
Laura

Saw an ad for this at the Maritime Club in Gagetown looks like it would be a good show.

Its not stand-up, it is sketch comedy...sorta...

The big show was in Gagetown on 13 Sept at the base theatre where it was recorded for CBC Radio, there were also recorded interviews done in Gagetown and Moncton with "real" army wives to get the stories first hand...and the stories will be interspersed with the actual comedy routine for the airing on 8 Oct.

Having seen the bit during the preview show in Moncton, I can say first hand...it is FUNNY and there is something that everyone can relate to. My husband especially enjoyed Laura's description of the flight to KAF.

She essentially takes her own experiences...and that of her friends...and spins them into funny bits that everyone can relate to, cus if it didn't happen to you...you know someone who did.

I enjoy stand up comedy. i wonder if i could find this

Go here: http://www.cbc.ca/frequency/  to find your local frequency, or here:  http://www.cbc.ca/listen/index.html to listen through your computer (live streaming - has the advantage of being able to hop through time zones if your local broadcast schedule isn't convenient for you).

I just finished listening to this on the east coast and it was hilarious, even hearing it for the third time.

If you can catch it, I highly recommend it.

Heard the last 15 minutes on CBC Radio T.Bay (on air) - VERY well done.  In fact, someone I went to school with apparently helped produce it.

Thanks for sharing!

Searched but couldn't find on the site. I guess they don't archive these shows. Now I'm disappointed...oh well maybe next time.

For anyone interested, the show is running Thursday, 1 May 08 at the Sea King Club. Starting at 8:15pm.

This is supported by the PSP and MFRC in the Halifax area. We recerived a pair of tickets and I will post some thoughts after the show.

The show was entertaining and enjoyable. Certain characters in the show stand out in my mind, but I do not want to give away too much. There were jokes for everyone to enjoy for spouses and members alike. Some jokes worked and others did not earn as many laughes. If you get the chance to see the show, I would recommend for you to take the time to see it.
