Faye Woodroof - The Grandmother From Hell
Her Farewell Appearance
It has been over 4-1/2 years since Faye Woodroof graced our stage. Come out this Friday or Saturday to see "The Grandmother From Hell" as she makes her farewell appearance at the Funny Stop Comedy Club.
To look at her silvery hair and soft, expressive eyes one could fairly assume Faye is a sweet, aging grandmother with a brood of small grandchildren. Don't let the gray hair fool you! Faye Woodroof is THE GRANDMOTHER FROM HELL!
Faye Woodroof has years worth of opinions to express and stories to tell, all of which are not quite as "sweet" as audiences might expect from a grandmother! She not only targets male egos with her explanations of how she NOW views men, but she tells how she tried to eliminate a few uncooperative husbands with poison mushrooms they were not too willing to eat! Faye's stories about aging body parts and sexual escapades will make audiences laugh so hard that they will be begging to borrow her Depends! Faye even includes punch lines about "Grannies in Jail" because of an incident that occurred between a SWAT team and herself not that long ago!
What makes Faye's story remarkable is that she only began her career in comedy just two decades ago. After raising her children and working as a clerical secretary at a school for more years than she cares to remember, Faye had finally reached the time for retirement and relaxation...that was until friends and coworkers started teasing her about growing old. The next thing everyone knew, Faye was up in front of audiences proving how alive she was by winning Showtime's Funniest Person in Tennessee and then HBO's Comic relief II National Championship. After that, Faye took her show to the road where she has been known as THE GRANDMOTHER FROM HELL ever since.
As the headlining act for clubs across the United States, Faye Woodroof is definitely in the prime of her life. Her new profession of making people laugh with stories from for past and insight into what to expect in the future has given Faye something entertaining to do in her golden years. Not only does THE GRANDMOTHER FROM HELL redefine the stereotypical grandmother of today she also lets you know that if you think the first half of life is funny, then wait until you hit the second half!
You won't want to miss Faye Woodroof in her Farewell Appearance at the Funny Stop. Don't wait. Make your reservation by calling our Box Office at 330-923-4700 now.
