Judy Tenuta at the Lakeshore
I think I’ve seen Judy Tenuta‘s stand-up specials about a hundred times while lazily flipping though channels on cable. She and Rita Rudner. Tenuta’s still touring comedy clubs and I caught her show last night at the Lakeshore Theater here in Chicago, which is also where she’s from. Her demented woman with an accordion shtick is still alive and well. And the crowd was with her all the way, even during her jokes about David Carradine‘s hanging member. She was selling her cd after the show, which has the great title “Buy This Again Pigs!” Clips of her 1988 Women of the Night HBO special and a 1990 appearance on The Howard Stern Show after the jump.
