Funny Girl: Shawn Pelofsky

Posted By on Wed, May 12, 2010 at 3:46 PM

Growing up Jewish in Oklahoma, it's no surprise that Shawn Pelofsky turned to a life of comedy. Jewish. In Oklahoma. 'Nuff said.

While her physical similarity to Barbra Streisand could have led to a lucrative career in impersonation, Pelofsky instead became a real funny girl, honing her skills on Southern California's comedy circuit—where she opened for the likes of Margaret Cho and Bill Maher—and entertaining the troops overseas.

Pelofsky is performing at Hijinx Comedy Club, 800 W. Idaho St. (above where Osaka used to be) tonight through Sunday. Call 208-947-7100 for reservations.
