“Laff Lady, America’s Funniest Grandma” visits TMC
The Thursday Morning Club will welcome guest speaker, Marion Oxenhorn, to its Wise, Wonderful Women Lecture Series on Thursday, February 20, 2020 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Club’s Madison Community House, 25 Cook Avenue. The Public is invited to attend this luncheon and lecture.
Marion, AKA the “Laff Lady, America’s Funniest Grandma” who resides in Rockaway, NJ, had her career and life changed at the age of 68, when she attended an all-female comedy show with friends. “I thought, ‘I could do that’ and every time I saw a comedian I said ‘I can get up there and do the same thing’ It didn’t look very hard.” These thoughts led to Marion’s enrollment in the Learning Annex in New York where she received such positive feed back from her mentor that she went on to perform at “Stand Up New York”. She continued to appear and headline in such other well-known metro area venues as “The New York Improv”, “Caroline’s”, and “Bananas Comedy Club” in Hasbrouck Heights. Marion is also a past winner of the “Gilda’s Club Laugh-Off” comedy contest.
Marion began her career when most people are retiring and she holds her 63-year marriage, her unconventional children, and the aging process responsible for much of her material. Marion delivers amusing anecdotes and stories blending humor with wry observations about domestic life and is refreshingly upfront with her audience which is sure to result in much entertainment and laughter.
The February 20th Wise, Wonderful Women Lunch and Lecture’s registration fee is $35; checks should be made payable to “TMC, Wise Wonderful Women” and sent to P.O. Box 345, Madison, N.J. 07940. Cancelled checks will serve as a receipt; no tickets will be mailed.
