"Wendy Maybury, who will play the Royal Comedy Theatre in mid-August, said she panicked that her career would come to a halt after she got pregnant.
“Louie Anderson told me: ‘Don’t worry about it. You’ll get 10 more minutes of material out of it,’ ” the Minneapolis-based comic said. “He was right. It made my comedy better.”
Last summer, Maybury started “Day Drinking With Mom,” a monthly get-together at Sisyphus Brewing featuring some of the Twin Cities’ most hilarious parents.
“Laughing is scientifically fantastic for your body and it makes you feel less alone,” said Maybury, “For the last couple shows, we invited audience members to share their own mom stories. You kind of unite, like: ‘We’re all in this together.’ Motherhood is feeling isolated, not sleeping, puke everywhere. That’s not a Mother’s Day card. That’s real life and it’s messy. When you call it for what it is, that’s refreshing.”
