About this event

A vaudevillian-style, one-woman celebration of female fools. Also, Abby may juggle (unconfirmed). Using a variety of comedy styles HarleQueen takes the audience on a journey through the history of female comedians; it's storytelling, history, and hilarity with honesty and heart.

Join the HarleQueen in celebrating the women who blazed a trail for their sisters in comedy!

"Our indisputable Queen of Fools" Theatreview.
"The breath of fresh air that we didn't even know we needed" Art Murmurs.
