    Since 2006, Four Funny Females, Dallas' only award winning, all-female stand-up comedy show has consistently been one of the McKinney Performing Arts Centers' most popular and requested programs. The secret is out! Four Funny Females is more than a hilarious stand-up comedy's a sisterhood on a mission to get women laughing again; women who wouldn't ordinarily step foot in a traditional comedy club. "Ms. Stogner jokes about being adopted, and Ms Bartlett injects humor into her bout with cancer." THE NEW YORK TIMES Every year they attract new audiences from across the state of Texas in large part because they aim not offend but rather make the themselves and the world around them a little better. Over the past 12+ years, Four Funny Female has garnered local, regional and national buzz including but not limited to Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, Texas Monthly, CNN, and the NY Times. ***Rated PG13 for adult innuendo & observational comedy.
