What do you get when you cross a farm girl with a former partner in a major Detroit law firm? And what on earth was the State Bar of Michigan thinking in 1980 when they issued this woman a license to practice law? And why should you always use your cup holder when buying coffee at McDonalds’s? And when will the road construction ever end? These and other questions will be answered when you discover the comic musings of Connie Ettinger. A self-styled “recovering lawyer,” Connie’s outlook on life pairs the seemingly divergent aspects of a small town upbringing with life in the legal fast lane and creates a sardonic view of matters ranging from the uncertainties of puberty to the absurdities of our justice system.
Stupid people, beware! She has no tolerance for their antics which bring the legal system (and freeways and grocery check out lines) to a maddeningly slow crawl. Her engaging, animated delivery on a variety of topics from “ladies’ nights out” to those who would not think twice about taking a hair dryer into the shower will draw the audience, regardless of background, age or sex, into a shared appreciation of life’s little ironies, guaranteeing that a good time will be had by all.
