Best Female Comedian

Mary Santora

Readers' Choice

Mary Santora, part of the Accidental Comedy Club group (in fact, the "First Lady" of the group, as Accidental's site proclaims), has quickly ascended to the top of various and good lists in the entertainment world. She's hit the road and opened for big names like Tom Papa and Frank Caliendo, but it's her work here in Northeast Ohio that we're always excited about. There are a million and a half guys doing standup here, and not enough women. Santora, who's funny as all hell, is leading the charge. We catch her sets at Accidental Comedy gigs here and there, and we're always happy to see her step to the stage.
