You don’t think women are funny? Well, you’re an idiot. Want proof? Come to Spotlight to see Pre-existing Conditions III, an all-female lineup produced by P.S.Y.C.H. 607.
One of the most popular comedy series in our playbook is moving to Spotlight and features five hilarious women — Molly McDowell, Jen Stephenson, Victoria Diana, Andrea Springer and Kate Clancy — who’ll take the stage and won’t give it up until they damn well feel like it.
Admission is $5 at the door and the bar’s open all night, so come out and see some of the funniest people in Albany, Rochester, Syracuse and Binghamton.
Molly McDowell is a regular in the Binghamton and Ithaca comedy scenes. A Connecticut native, McDowell brings her observational skills onto the stage and isn’t afraid of any topic. She highlighted the Pre-Existing Conditions show at Matty B’s in June and is back again.
Jen Stephenson is a hard-working, far-traveling comedian from Syracuse who enjoys taking shots at herself. Stephenson hasn’t met a mic she could turn down and has performed all over the state, including the Helium Comedy Club in Buffalo and the Greenwich Village Comedy Club in New York City. She took first at the CNY Playhouse Clash of the Comics and spends hours envisioning the perfect kiss — or tacos. Whichever comes first.
Victoria Diana performs all over New York and Vermont. She’s the winner of the Queen Bee Comedy Competition and the Vermont Comedy Outlaw’s Thunderdome. She’s the loser of many other comedy competitions and her mother’s validation. She loves writing in third person and pretending to read Infinite Jest in public for attention. She is currently saving up for her first side-boob tattoo: “Some dive bar near Jones Beach,” so she never forgets from where she came.
Based in Rochester, Andrea Springer has performed improv comedy professionally for 10 years and stand-up for two. A finalist in the Future Feature Competition at Comedy @ the Carlson in Rochester, Springer frequently performs around upstate New York and puts together benefit shows for charitable causes. She also co-presented twice at the New York State Literacy conference on teaching students improv comedy to encourage literacy.
Kate Clancy is a self-proclaimed bad bitch by day and an upstate New York comic by night. Crowned the Funniest in Saratoga in 2017 and the first Vermont Comedy Thunderdome champion, Clancy’s proudest moment in comedy took place when a punchline caused a woman to take off her shoes and storm the stage, leaving her over-processed, soccer-mom hair disheveled to form one of the best meltdown videos ever uploaded to the internet.
