VT Comedy Divas [SIV62]

1/12/07: Vermont Comedy Divas sold out the ballroom at Higher Ground last Saturday.  A line stretched around the building with VTers hungry for comedy and eager for a winter respite.

Four funny female VTers, Josie Leavitt, Martha Tormey, Sally Stevens, and MaryAnne Gatos warmed up the crowd with their tantalizing tales.

Josie Leavitt has been performing stand-up for almost 20 years.  She left NYC for VT, opened the Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne and began teaching comedy at the Flynn.  The divas met in Josie's classes and the seed for a bigger act was planted.

What comes next for these funny ladies?  With a state lacking a comedy club and hungry for laughs, the divas future looks bright.

    Workers have begun dismantling the old coal-fired power plant on the Burlington waterfront which closed down in 1986. The long-awaited redevelopment is removing the outer brick layer of the building and retaining the interior steel framework, the centerpiece of a new city park on a waterfront that was once devoted to industry.
