It was a night of dirty jokes by the ladies and for the ladies on Friday night at the Laguna Town Hall in Elk Grove, where the Real (Funny) Housewives of Rio Linda brought their comedic talents to the Laguna West neighborhood as part of their current tour of the Sacramento area.
A near-capacity crowd made up of women of all ages, some of whom did bring their husbands or boyfriends, filled the hall, which was configured with a more intimate setup rather than a traditional auditorium stage.
Without having any prior knowledge about these comedians and their show, one might go into it thinking all five of them perform at the same time as a group. Instead, Sinderella, Kristen Frisk, Kimmie Kay, Cheryl the Soccer Mom, and Stephanie Garcia each deliver their own set over the course of two hours. And while the group’s name is a play off the Bravo network series, these ladies were highly entertaining without any of that high-maintenance drama.
Each of the Real (Funny) Housewives have great energy while on stage, but Kimmie Kay may have had the most on this evening. Her enthusiasm for making the audience laugh combined with her set of very adult-themed content appeared to draw the most side-splitting laughs. Each of the ladies were very funny and entertaining as they talked and joked about their own life experiences from being married and having kids to trying various methods of weight-loss.
All five of the ladies have professional comic backgrounds, and they met while doing shows at many of the same venues in town. It was Cheryl, who is the soccer mom after all, who got this group together. Cheryl said most typical comedy shows will have just one woman on the bill, if any, so this was a way for each of them to support each other. The support was evident, too, as each member of the group sat off to the side and watched the show while one of them was on stage. Each of ladies still performs individually when the group, which has been around for about a year, is not touring together.
If you enjoy jokes about male and female anatomy, among other things, and you are not easily offended, then this is the show for you. You will not be disappointed.
