One Funny Mother stars comedian, former Miss New Jersey, and married mother of three, Dena Blizzard, in her hilarious solo comedy show about the trials and tribulations of motherhood and marriage. An outrageous and side splitting 80 minutes of sass that follows Dena on her hilarious journey through a day of cleaning as she prepares for her big “Girls Night Out.” Along the way she laments how her life and marriage have changed since becoming a mother of three, wrestling with the eternal question, “Have I gone crazy since having these kids?” The answer is a hysterical, “laugh ’til your face hurts” comedy that you won’t want to miss!

One Funny Mother has toured the United States and was named “Best One Woman Show” at the 2015 United Solo Festival in New York City. Current reviews include “PLENTY OF LAUGHS!” - NY Times; “I cannot think of the last time I laughed this hard and much and felt validated.” - Motherhood Later; and "The men were out in full force too, trumpeting along to all of Dena'a inclusive humor" - NY Theater Guide.

One Funny Mother is a great “Girls Night Out” or Date Night for anyone that IS a mom, HAS a mom or is MARRIED to a mom.
