THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR

They fucking rock and are supporting our project and this show for you ladies!
LOVE IS AWK. an evening with female comics sharing how weird relationships are
This event is for the married, the dating, the broken-hearted, the single ladies, gay or straight. It’s a night out without the dudes on a mooshy holiday that either has you feeling pressured to make a romantic evening or pissed because no one is making that for you. It’s a few hours out of the apartment to laugh your ass off with other girls who are looking to block out Valentine’s Day shenanigans. It’s a reminder that it’s nothing but a day and it can be spent with some badass ladies.
What Your Ticket Includes
You MUST be 21+ to attend this event as it will be held at a distillery.
Your ticket will include a crafted cocktail by the Jos A Magnus Distillery ladies. Your ticket will grant you entry to our exclusive women's only event to watch (5) female comics perform. Our artists are:

Doors will open at 7 PM and it's imperative that you arrive on time. Doors will close at 7:45 PM to begin our show and we want to respect those performing and those who came to watch.
We'll have Fluffness set up for Cotton Candy treats (can you believe they're organic?!), satirical comics and prints by Dana, clothing rack set up by Naimah of From My Mother's Closet, and jewelry displayed by Laila of Äyna Jewelry.
Towards the end of the show, we'll have a Love Advice Q & A session. Our comics will answer your questions about relationships and everything that it entails. We'll be taking your questions at the beginning of the show and draw a few from the hat to have enough time to do as many as we can!
Additional drinks have been discounted at $10 a drink after your first drink ticket! We'll have small bites available and a few female vendors showcasing their products for purchase at the beginning and end of the event.
We have these to emphasize respect towards those we’re meeting with and recognizing we’re more than just a face.
No phones will be used until the end of the show
No exchanges of social media handles, emails, or numbers until the end of the show
No discussion about work or who you work for
We have no labels here. The only labels are the ones we place on ourselves. The only exceptions held are the ones we carry over our heads. We’re not here to impress each other, compete with each other, or trade services with each other.
