Comedian-writer-animal activist Elayne Boosler is best known for her thoughtful and feisty political humor, and her love of baseball and animals. For forty years, she seemingly has appeared on every talk show ever on TV, has produced and written five one-hour Showtime comedy specials, written and directed two movies for Cinemax, appeared on Comic Relief for years, on Politically Incorrect over thirty times, and has hosted specials, series, and events. She has done lots of baseball color commentary, and sung the National Anthem and/or thrown out a first pitch many times for several teams. It’s no surprise that Rolling Stone Magazine sited Boosler as one of the Top 50 Comics of All Time (Feb. 14, 2017).

“Imagine the prototypical female comic of the 1980s: Big hair, suit jacket with shoulder pads and the sleeves rolled up, the ubiquitous brick wall behind her. You’re imagining Elayne Boosler – but before that image became a cliché, it was just part of the stand-up act she had been honing for years.” —Rolling Stone Magazine

Boosler will share the stage with the likes of Bruce Baum, Jackie Flynn, Denny Johnston, Scott Land, Scott Record, Ritch Shydner, and of course the evening’s hosts multiple award-winning comedy magician Michael Finney and “The Spouse Whisper” comedian Mark Cordes.
