Laughing Affairs, founded by comedian Felicia Madison, presented Laughercise, an innovative lunchtime comedy show, at the West Side Comedy Club located at Playa Betty’s restaurant in New York City. The afternoon’s lineup included Felicia Madison and fellow comedians Liz Miele and Carmen Lynch.

Guests enjoyed lunch as the talent took to the stage. Felicia performed after an opening act, sharing her irreverent take on marriage, motherhood, and life in Manhattan. “My husband wouldn’t divorce me,” she quipped. “He couldn’t bear to part with… half of his money.” Liz offered anecdotes on dating as a comedian (“His eyes are broke, my face is broke… is this what soulmates are?” she joked about dating a color blind suitor while dealing with an acne flare-up) and Carmen’s routine touched on everything from dating an older man to goat yoga.

Notable guests included Felicia Madison, Carmen Lynch, Liz Miele, Belinda Boxer, Laurie Gelman, Deana Hanson, Tara Lipton, Kory Apton, Carol Lister, Mara Landis, Nina Ashe and Gina Savage.

The Laughercise series eschews the traditional late night environs of comedy clubs, instead treating guests to a one course meal, dessert, and glass of wine in the afternoon as both up-and-coming and veteran comedians take to the stage. Laughercise’s times and locations are perfect for comedy fans seeking laughs outside of the traditional late night, male-dominated clubs. Laughercise is a production of Felicia’s Laughing Affairs, which also produces daytime and evening comedy events for birthdays, showers, corporate gatherings and charitable causes.
