Comedian Kate Quigley's titillating resume includes hosting an adult-video awards show and doing stand-up in a bikini. But those venturing out to Mall of America's House of Comedy this week expecting Playboy After Dark are in for a different sort of adult education.
Quigley dedicated nearly her entire act Wednesday to the insatiable desires of a divorcee in her 30s. But the host of the podcast, #DateFails, managed to obsess on sex without ever sounding filthy, a difficult trick for any comic, let alone one who looks like Lindsay Lohan's older and wiser sis.
Quigley pulls it off by aiming for the audience's sympathies rather than their libidos, getting them on their side early with a bit about how she married too young, and keeping them there as she crept into more and more explicit territory.
After the show, Quigley chatted about how she's adjusting her act to appeal to more than just male horndogs. It's a smart move, one that doesn't require wearing a bikini.
Quigley and opening act Brian Redban, an inventive, versatile comic whose made a name for himself in podcasts, will be in town through Saturday. For tickets, visit https://moa.houseofcomedy.net/
