Ladies Who Laugh by New York Women In Communications
New York City native Jodie upset her parents by studying acting after graduating from college. Then, at the recommendation of an acting coach, she tried stand-up and hasn’t looked back. Known for her honest, feisty persona and hard-hitting material, Jodie was the co-creator and host of Spin Cycle Comedy, a stand-up show that took place in a NYC laundromat. The New York Times, Newsweek and Japanese television reported on the show. She has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, BET’s Comic View, the Dutch TV show the Comedy Factory and at top clubs throughout the United States.
Through her eyes “Sitting at Starbucks, drinking an iced mocha, watching three women in their 70s laughing and having a great time. They all have perfectly curled, grey old-lady hair and identical bags from Fabco Shoes. FYI: Fabco Shoes is a store that sells the cheapest shoes on Earth. They are obviously all wearing the shoes they just bought. Me? I am alone with my newly styled trendy hair and nice expensive sandals, not having so much fun. Moral of the story: Shallowness is boring. Maybe Bloomies will let me exchange these sandals for a life of friendship and laughter.”
