Comedian Tammy Pescatelli

September 14, at 7:30pm

Arguably one of the hardest working women in comedy today, Tammy Pescatelli brings brassy sexiness with a female voice of witty sarcasm to her audiences, holding her own on topics of sports, television, dating and family life using tongue-in-cheek humor.  Known for her appearances on NBC's Last Comic Standing, award-winning Netflix special Finding the Funny, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The View, Pescatelli is one of the only female comedians relatable to every audience member - male or female!  After seeing her perform, everyone wishes she was their best friend or sister!
