We the Ladies is back and more delicate than ever as they present their all-femme and gender nonbinary comedy show, “pls i’m delicate,” at Might as Well bar on April 19 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
“pls i’m delicate” features stand-up comedy, as well as comedic sketches from some of the best jokesters in Chapel Hill.
“My friend Ellie and I came up with the name ‘pls i’m delicate,’” said Shea Stanley, a junior drama and communications major at UNC and president of We the Ladies. “We thought it was a friendly name for a comedy show. It plays on the idea that women are fragile creatures and that we want people to laugh at our jokes.”
Stanley created the idea of having a nonbinary show to try to fulfill the need of women in comedy and give a space for everyone to express their creativity. Her friend, Ellie Rodriguez, also shared the same idea. When they came together, We the Ladies was formed.
“Me and Shea founded the group this past summer,” said Rodriguez, a junior English major and vice president of We the Ladies. “We were freaking out when doing our first show last semester, because we were scared that it wasn’t going to work out and that a lot of people weren’t going to come. It was so amazing to see more than 100 people come out and support, and we hope that happens again for this show.”
