About the Pink Collar Comedy Tour
The Pink Collar Comedy Tour features New York-based comedians Kaytlin Bailey, Abbi Crutchfield, Carrie Gravenson, and Erin Judge as they bring cutting-edge, hilarious stand-up comedy all across the US and beyond. The Tour premiered in South Carolina in 2012 and has since played to packed houses in more than 36 cities, including Austin, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Toronto, San Francsico, Raleigh, and many more. The Boston Globe said it best: The Pink Collar Comedy Tour is "smart comedy by female comics."

Erin Judge has appeared on Comedy Central’s "Live at Gotham" and at comedy clubs and venues all around the world. This Brooklyn native recently released her first stand-up album, So Many Choices (Rooftop Comedy Productions), to rave reviews.

The term "Pink Collar" designates a type of worker (just like blue collar or white collar), and it spefically refers to traditional "women's work," like nursing, child care, waitressing, or secretarial jobs. These four hard-working female comics bring their day job woes to the stage along with other stories and observations from their lives, and the result is a night of stand-up comedy that's loads of fun for everyone.
