The Layover 

1517 Franklin St 

Oakland, CA 




Hello darlings….

Ladies Love the Layover is turning 2! I can’t believe we’ve had 2 amazing years of shows at the Layover. Feels like just yesterday that I took over the  monthly ladies night and turned it into a place for lovers. 

With help from our amazing sponsor Feelmore 510, we’ve managed to pack the house each and every month with comedy fans to love the shit out of. 

We are gonna celebrate our second year with an incredible line up of Ladies Love favorites….

Featuring the one and only MARGA GOMEZ 


Marga is my personal comedy lord and savior. She’s provided me countless laughs, advice, love and so much more while I’ve developed over the last five years. She’s absolutely one of the best working comics today. She’s produced one-woman shows, including her most recent work Lovebirds which has run in SF, Santa Cruz and NYC. Without her, we’d all be nothing so Im thrilled to have her on our anniversary show. She’ll be headlining the shit out of our show. 


Chris Burns 

In this picture, she may look like she’s ready to sell you insurance but I assure you that’s not the case. The only thing this bitch is selling is sass. I could listen to her talk all damn day because her voice is soothing. However be careful, she’s one of those people that can get you to divulge your life story by asking you the RIGHT three questions. Her jokes and storytelling are incredible. She’s one of my favorites and kills every time she joins us so come get witness the power that is Chris Burns. 


Natasha Muse 

What can I say about Natasha that’s not already been said? She’s beautiful. She’s poised. She’s a phenomenal mom. She’s an unbelievable joke writer and pun crafter which is why she was named the best tranny comedian in SF in 2012 and a comic to watch in 2013 by SF Weekly.  This year she became a member of the renowned comedy enclave The Business. She also knows how to conjure rainbows, unicorns and turn rain into glitter. All of these things are true. 


Jane Harrison 

This gal is one of my favorite young women on the scene. She’s a southern belle without all the flower print, hair spray and constant fanning. She’s a phenomenal dancer and commonly refers to men as “Baby boy” which steals my heart every damn time. Her dry sarcasm, clever wit and southern charm are undeniable. Get you some. 

I’ll be there too of course….hosting like a mutherfucker cause that’s what I do.

Happy New Year! 

January is going to be an INSANELY good show. I’ve booked incredibly strong comics to kick off 2014 right. 

We will have fewer comics this month with each lady doing MORE time. 

Ladies loving you long time this month … 

Featured Ladies: 


Caitlin Gill 

Caitlin is one of my favorite people on the planet. Period. She’s the best at pretty much everything including but not limited to comedy. She’s a gentleman and a scholar.  


Marcella Arguello 

Bitches try to hate on Marcella because she’s fine as fuck, skinny as shit and taller than a mutherfucker. They just jealous, and they should be. She radiates dope-ness. Bask in it. 


This bitch is amazing. Like AH-MAH-ZING. With her on the show, we’ve got a SERIOUS triple threat on our hands. THIS SHOW IS GOING TO BE FUCKING INCREDIBLE. 

Also performing 

Emily Epstien White 

Jane Harrison

And of course me, Lydia Popovich will be your host for the evening. 

We start at 8:30pm. 

Show is ALWAYS free. 

Tops are ALWAYS encouraged.

Next Show: July 9!


We are in the HEART of Summah. The time is now. You gotta have it. Get filthy with it NOW….while it’s hot.

 As a wise man once said, don’t wait till August to have a Summah

One of the best ways to spend a Summah weeknight is at a comedy show with your friends. And wouldn’t you know it…we’ve got a SUPER SWEET Summah line up planned for July. 

Ladies Lovin’ Summah….


Dhaya Lakshminaranyanan is cute as a button and sharp as a whip. Her intelligent and playful delivery charms audiences every time. 


Kimberly Rose Wendt  is one half of the producer duo Bitch Slap. She’s focusing her efforts on a big time show in August featuring a few Ladies Love favs and me. Kim is a funny gal in her own right. Come watch her shine. 


Priya Prasad is one of the Bay Area’s best. She’s bold, she’s beautiful and she’s fucking funny. If she made shirts that read “Priya is my Homegirl” they would sell out instantly. 


Corie Gipson recently reminded me that about two years ago after a show at the San Jose Improv, my mom said to Corie, “Keep it up, you did great!” Corie heeded my mom’s advise and now she’s even greater. I’m so happy to have her back at the Layover. Hopefully she’ll tell you all about the time she punched a bitch in the face. Oh and my mom is a prophet. 

And guest sets from….

Rachel Scoot This young lady dropped in and watched the last few months of Ladies Love shows.  She’s newish to the scene so I’m excited to see what she does.  

Smita Venkat introduced herself to me last month at Ladies Love and said she met Janine Brito in Tokyo and she recommended us. Janine Brito is one of the greatest human beings alive so I had to give Smita a set. 

And of course, I will be your host, Lydia Popovich guiding you through the glistening comedic waters on a hot summah night. 

Here I am represented by this picture of my mom jumping out of an airplane. That’s how you have a fucking summah. (Technically this was in PRE-summah but I think she deserves extra credit) 


Fun fact — I’m headlining a show at The Punch Line on 7.23.13. It features the dynamic Marcella Arguello as the host and a bunch of boys who I love but won’t be mentioned here because this is a web page for women by women. Buy Tickets.
