"If you think you’ve seen all that women in comedy have to offer, think again. Fresh, original Chris Pendleton will take you — at the speed of light — down her funny road-less-traveled. With a new spin on everything from adoption to physics (and plenty in between) it’s a performance you don’t want to miss — but fair warning: not for the faint of thought."

LA Weekly


"With a hilarious mix of stylish stand-up, outrageous song parodies and funny fiddling, comedienne Chris Pendleton doesn’t leave a dry seat in the house. And she’s not just another pretty face behind a microphone, thank God — this girl really knows how to write."


"In the male-dominated world of stand-up comics, Southern gal Chris Pendleton is quickly making a name for herself. With an easy manner, charming Southern drawl and quick wit, she takes the audience on a mental stroll through dating, marriage, having children and having older parents. Chris offers very funny yet delightfully clean humor."


"Ms. Pendleton is quick, intelligent, and avoids the obvious female comic clichés. Some female comics delve into the realm of what’s-funny-about-being-a-woman-as-opposed-to-being-a-man style of humor. Chris Pendleton has transcended that material, sticking to her comic, through-the-lens perception of life."
