Date of Copyright
Ivy Bottini's stand-up comedy album.
Liner Notes: Whether in nightclubs or on the university circuit, Bottini is an electrifying and masterful performer. She owns the stage and all who come to see her. Bottini's appeal has no limit as she cuts through ethnic, age and sex barriers.She has been compared to the celebrated actress Ruth Draper for her unique approach to drama, and also to Lenny Bruce for her outrageous daring in stripping away taboos and destructive (but never discussed social restrictions.She humanistically deals with growing up female and breezes through subjects you won't hear just anywhere, taking her audience from comedy to pathos. A fast-rising comedienne, Bottini had been well established in other areas o communications before turning her talents to comedy and performing. She now tours large and small cities, appearing in colleges, theatres and clubs, making her way into the hearts of women and men alike.
