Dale, Michele VanDusen and Gains Kelly, who will regularly perform at the club, will provide the clean comedy in May.
Dale tells stories about her family, which she characterizes as red trash -- half redneck and half white trash.
VanDusen, a stay-at-home mother of four boys, talks about motherhood, home schooling and her weight issues.
Kelly shares stories of what it's like to be raised in Bartlesville. Dale said Tulsa needs a place for comedians to flock to because the city has a rich history. "Great comedy has always come out of Tulsa," she said. "Tulsa breeds comedy, and we want to help those who want to give it a try."
Eventually, the club will have open-mike nights. The room seats 125 people and tickets are $10.
Yuk it up every weekend
New comedy club in Tulsa brings area, national acts
TULSA — Suddenly, Tulsa is alive with comedy. After the city’s last comedy club shut down last year, it seemed there was no place to hear live comedians doing their thing. Then, later last year, the Brady Theatre started booking nationally known comedians, and now Cowboy Sharkies, at 58th and Memorial, is bringing live comedy to Tulsa every weekend with national headliners and local opening acts. The atmosphere is intimate and friendly, with about a dozen tables set up in front of a stage surrounded by fish tanks and punctuated by a cow skull that has become the butt of several comedians’ jokes, according to Susan Dale, a comedianne who also is the manager and promoter of Tulsa Comedy Tonight.
