Ladies of Laughter continues its mission in highlighting talented women in comedy by presenting Edmonds, Washington native, Meaghan Gross. Gross caught the eyes of Ladies of Laughter with her brilliant writing and deadpan delivery. She started doing stand-up comedy officially six years ago after taking a workshop taught by Ron Reid, and immediately became hooked on the humiliation and rejection that only comedy can offer. She has enjoyed a self-described meteoric rise to mediocrity that’s allowed her to perform in many of the Northwest’s finest clubs and all of its’ crappiest ones. She regularly gets to perform with Susan Jones, Alex Elkin and Tommy Savitt. Her comedy goal is to perform under Gary Gulman, "however he would like." When not performing, Meaghan enjoys not performing and spending time with her two sons.
