No fooling. ‘Funny Fiddle’ plays Saturday

Published 10:50 am Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Chris Pendleton’s “Funny Fiddle,” is coming to the area, courtesy of the Franklin-Southampton Concert Association, this Saturday, April 1. Ticket holders will recall the comedian/musician was to perform in January, but that scheduled weekend was covered in snow, postponing the event.

According to her website,, Pendleton has accumulated many TV appearances, such as

FOX’s Comic Strip Live, SHOWTIME Comedy Club Network, A&E’s An Evening At The Improv and Comedy On The Road, Lifetime’s Girls’ Night Out and VH-1’s Stand- Up Spotlight With Rosie O’Donnell.

She’s headlined at performing arts theaters, corporate events and comedy clubs throughout country and around the world. The South Carolina native resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she frequently performs in the casino resort showrooms.

One reviewer wrote: “… Chris draws her razor-sharp material from a unique perspective and an amazingly diverse background. Breaking new ground for women in comedy, her show cuts across all the traditional gender boundaries, appealing to both men and women alike. Her surprising talent with the violin adds an additional “Jack Benny” dimension to her unique performance.”

The performance will be at the auditorium of Southampton High School in Courtland, and begin at 7:30 p.m.
