Female comedians are celebrated in TV Guide's 'StandUp in Stilettos.'
TV Guide Network is bringing back its popular original comedy series, “StandUp in Stilettos,” hosted by actress Kate Flannery (“The Office”).
Set to premiere on Saturday, November 10 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, the show will feature three stand-up comics per episode, including many well-known names and faces on today’s comedy scene.
Season two of “StandUp in Stilettos” includes 12 half-hour episodes featuring comedic material for, by and about women.
Scheduled are: Thea Vidale (“Thea,” “The Drew Carey Show”); Cory Kahaney (guest appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman,” “Last Comic Standing”); Cathy Ladman (guest appearances on “The Tonight Show”); Luenell (“Borat,” “Think Like a Man”); and Laurie Kilmartin (writer for “Conan”).
"There are so many great, funny women we couldn't fit them all in one season. Not even close!” said Kate Flannery. “This show is a great half-hour of stand-up comedy. The only difference between our show and other stand-up shows is that occasionally there's lipstick on the mic."
Hopefully the producers will land some hot Latina comics like critica' favorite, Monique Marvez, the whipsmart standup comic featured on Showtime's Latin Divas and Showtime's Snoop Dogg Bad Girls of Comedy.
