The Bothwell Arts Center is proud to present "One Night, Three Women, Too Funny" comedy night  starring local comedians Regina Stoops, Stacey Gustafson and Margaret Zhao.

Regina Stoops was born and raised in a town called Normal, though her humor is anything but. She has her own unique perspective on what most might consider the mundane details of ordinary life: raising three boys, being married (or not), aging parents, health care, navigating the world of special education, mini-van motoring and the grocery store.

Regina’s comedic ramblings take a look at an ordinary life and redefine what it is to be normal. Her unique perspective on life in the suburbs has made her a favorite at conferences, comedy clubs and fundraisers throughout the Bay Area. More can be found about Regina at


Stacey Gustafson is a proud city slicker from St. Louis who turns everyday frustrations into hilarity. Her tongue-in-cheek brand of humor resonates with the audience as she pokes fun at kids, parents, marriage and midlife.

She is also an Amazon bestselling author, humor columnist, and blogger who has experienced the horrors of being trapped inside a pair of SPANX. She lives in the East Bay with her husband and two teenagers that provide an endless supply of inspiration. Visit and Twitter @RUKiddingStacey.

Her book, Are You Kidding Me? My Life With An Extremely Loud Family, Bathroom Calamities, and Crazy Relatives boasts a 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

Her stories about parenting and daily events like laundry, public restrooms, and being middle-aged have appeared in numerous books and online publications. Her accolades include being honored as the Erma Bombeck Humor Writer of the Month.

Margaret Zhao was born in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her award-winning memoir Really Enough; A True Story of Tyranny, Courage and Comedy, charts her daunting struggle for survival, freedom and forbidden love.  Unfairly labeled as Enemy of the State under Chairman Mao,  Margaret had to use humor and wit to survive oppressive tyranny and then to handle the often hysterical challenges of culture shock in America. From learning to drive to pronouncing the Taco Bell menu, Margaret's stories of crossing cultures create surprises and uncontrollable laughs.   

With her great sense of humor and  inspirational life story, Margaret has entertained and delighted audiences of all ages at the Hollywood Laugh Factory, comedy clubs, schools, churches, fundraising events and many other venues.
