Review: Stand Up 4 Women, Phoenix Arts Club

I'm not a comedy critic. I know what makes me laugh, and also that a good laugh is what we all need right now. I disclaim this primarily because Sikisa - host of the fifth annual Stand Up 4 Women comedy gala - has no time for comedy critics: "Just don't!" she breaks off to tell everyone. However, she has nothing to fear because the night, though uneven, gives enough good laughs, and all for a very good cause.

Review: Stand Up 4 Women

Hosted by Sikisa live from a podium at the Phoenix Arts Club, the six performers appear via Zoom from their own homes enhanced by an invisible 'front row' with an invited Zoom audience of comedians (visible only to each other) providing a focus for the performer and adding a real-time laughter track that creates a bit of extra atmosphere.
