Ladies get last laugh at Nugget’s Carson Comedy Club
Dual degrees in mechanical engineering and journalism weren’t enough to satisfy Jill Maragos’ need to stand out, so she chooses to stand up. A female comedian in a largely male-dominated field, Maragos serves up her unique “outrage over minutia” style in a special “Ladies Night of Comedy – Where Women Get the Last Laugh” event at the Carson Comedy Club, located inside the Carson Nugget Casino Hotel, 507 N. Carson St., Friday, Sept. 14, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:15.
Alatte Coffee, Wine & Deli, also located inside the Carson Nugget, will be offering select wines at $5 a glass for the event.
Maragos hails from a “crazy family” in Buffalo, N.Y., and has been featured on Audible’s “Fresh Voices of Comedy” at San Francisco’s Sketchfest. She performs across the country, including regular stints at The Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco; and has appeared on popular television shows like NBC’s “The Office,” Fox TV’s “Laughs” and HULU’s “West Coast Comedy.”
“We are so excited to show the ladies of Carson City a great time,” Trish Trenoweth, director of sales and marketing for the Nugget, said. “Jill hits on every one of the little things that drive women crazy, and you have to laugh at how they apply to our every day lives.”
Trenoweth said Alatte features more than 40 different wines from around the world.
“It wouldn’t be Ladies Night without a great wine selection,” she said. “We even have beer on tap for any brave men who show up.”
Maragos heads to Florida following her one-night stop in Carson City. Visit http://www.CCNugget.com for information.
