New autobiography offers both funny and inspiring insight into life as a mom and stand-up comedian

Comedy Mom! My Funny Stand-up Life, by clean comedian Sally Edwards, hits home with funny stories about child-rearing and stand-up comedy while offering an inspiring message about living life to the fullest and sharing your special gifts.

Chicago, IL (September 13th, 2013) - Sally Edwards, mother and clean stand-up comedian, loves being a mom. With children grown, she now has the time and energy to write the stories that made her laugh to tears when her children were small. Having experienced a very unsettling childhood Sally Edwards vows to bring up her own children with positive words and encouragement. Surrounded by a menagerie of rescue animals, she finds peace in their presence as well as ample opportunities to teach her children empathy.

Sally Edwards lives her teenage years at an all-girls Catholic boarding school where she first discovers her ability to make people laugh. However, it is not until she attends a show at Chicago's Second City Improvisational Theater on a "bad" blind date that she truly realizes her destiny. Years of improvisational classes and a career on the stand-up comedy stage give a behind-the-scenes look at the pressures of stand-up comedy while including funny ways comedians prank each other in live performance.

Sally Edwards is married to Bert Haas, Executive Vice President of Zanies Comedy Clubs, who she calls the "funniest man she ever met." Sally Edwards offers inspiring and motivational flavour to her story as she encourages her readers to appreciate life and "go with the fear" when met with life's challenges.
