The C Word, named Best Solo Show of 2010 by Time Out NY and nominated for an ECNY award for Best One Person Show, is coming to LA.
Pam Murphy (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) was
an amazing woman, then she got breast cancer.
Whoops. Now, as an even more amazing woman,
Pam shares her story through comedy. Take a journey with Pam as she capitalizes on the worst
thing that’s ever happened to her. Through a series of characters, including various versions of
herself. Pam takes you on a very honest journey through her experience with breast cancer. Yes,
this show is about breast cancer, but you know, in a funny way. Directed by Rebecca Drysdale
(LOGO, HBO, MTV, Jim Hensen Company.)

"Murphy is a skilled joke writer. It’s clear that she wanted The C Word to be, above all else, funny. Not revelatory or soul-searching or didactic or triumphant, just very, very funny."
- Time Out New York
"Ready or not, you're going to laugh plenty at this show. This is a comedy show about cancer. Don't be scared and jump onboard for the ride."
"Murphy demonstrates that comedy could perhaps more precisely be defined as 'Time + Tragedy + A Series of Tightly Written Sketches Performed With High Energy and Inimitable Commitment.'"
