Comedy onstage for Foothill High

Laugh with three ladies about daily trials and tribulations

by Dolores Fox Ciardelli

Laugh it up for a good cause.

A performance of three comediennes -- "One Night, Three Women, Too Funny!" -- at Tommy T's Comedy Club in Pleasanton on Tuesday will be held to benefit Foothill High School.

The performers are Regina Stoops, Margaret Zhao and Stacey Gustafson, who recently sold out a performance at Bothwell Arts Center in Livermore.

"The audience loved Regina, Stacey and Margaret's performance," Bothwell manager Anne Giancola said. "Each of the comediennes delivers her story in a unique way, but each are keen observers of the daily trials, tribulations, rituals and joys of life. Come ready to laugh."

Regina Stoops was raised in a town called Normal, though her humor is anything but. Her comedic ramblings take a look at an ordinary life and redefine what it is to be normal.

Stacey Gustafson is a proud city slicker from St. Louis who turns everyday frustrations into hilarity as she pokes fun at kids, parents, marriage and midlife.

And Margaret Zhao illustrates how she used her humor and wit to survive oppressive tyranny in China and then the extreme challenges of culture shock in America.

Tickets are $20, with a table of eight for $120, plus a two-item minimum purchase. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and a silent auction will begin at that time to benefit Foothill PTSA and Band Boosters. The comedy show starts at 7:30 p.m.
