ImprovAcadia Presents Ladies Who Ranch, comedy
The Ladies Who Ranch (name meaning: nothing) are a group of comedians who care deeply about uplifting female voices, in particular their own. They are Sophie Zucker, Maya Sharma, Kelly Cooper, Caitlin Dullea, and Caroline Yost. The way they met is boring (improv class, dingy basement, lots of rats), but the comedy they do is not. Their monthly, typically sold-out show at Union Hall includes unhinged character performances, dreamy monologues, attacks on their audience, and unconventional musical bits. TimeOut NY has called them “demented” and an “onstage experiment.” The New York Timesheralded them as the “sometimes improper quintet of funny ladies.” They recently sold a pitch to Comedy Central and currently have a TV show in development with Cowboy Bear Ninja. They were listed as both "Best of 2021 Comedy" and "Comcs to Watch in 2022" by Comedy Bureau and Gold Comedy, respectively.
