How did Nice Gals like you Start Doing Stand-up?


Sally Love and Nancy Stanley


Sally was a radio and tv engineer in the 70’s, trained Russian factory workers in teamwork and time management, co-authored a popular book on Women’s spirituality, “Sacred Circles”, did executive recruiting for the mayor of Washington, DC, and became a yoga teacher after being fired by that mayor. Sally sees every experience as grist for the comedy she performs.
