Comedian Kristen Studard is back with a new solo show, following up her last show Small Victories, which was Recommended with a capital R by the Chicago Reader and hailed as “Smart, ironic… and winningly offbeat” by the Chicago Tribune. In this brand new show Studard takes a look at her life and thinks the title of the show. The full title. She’s crying when she thinks it. Kristen has performed at the Comedy Central Stage in LA, TBS Just For Laughs Festival, SF Sketchfest, Chicago Sketchfest, and countless theatres, clubs, bars, bookstores, and backyards.
