(who co-writes the internationally-syndicated radio service, The Comedy
Wire) has dubbed her show, "My Ship Has Sailed: How To Be A Late-Bloomer
In A World Obsessed With Extreme Youth." She has filled it with biting
monologues and parody songs that wed jazz, pop and classical melodies
to witty lyrics about plastic surgery, cosmetics, double standards
on aging, and every other aspect of today's hell-bent pursuit of youth.
And she topped it off with an inspirational message that age shouldn't
matter, plus her own advice, such as, "Never tell your age. If anyone
asks, just say, 'I can't recall. But how much do you weigh?'"
longtime friend and pianist Brian Piper, she launched her ship in
a tiny club on Lower Greenville, a funky Dallas entertainment strip.
But word got around and some newspaper articles soon hailed the show
as "a potential cult phenomenon" and compared its shoestring origins
and feminine appeal to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." Suburban adults
soon began braving the bohemian neighborhood to see this rare club
show that actually spoke to people over 25.
The act also
began getting corporate and private bookings. In its next step up,
the show found a new home at DJANGO ON THE PARKWAY, a spacious supper
club in upscale North Dallas. Soon, the show began attracting the
attention of Las Vegas bookers and media members, including award-winning
Dallas TV producer David Clements. Clements attended Ms. Ainsworth's
next performance at Django and became a convert.
So on Sunday,
July 18th, Mr. Clements will be directing a multiple camera crew as
they tape "My Ship Has Sailed" for a special to air in Dallas on DCTV
and Comcast Cable. He sees it as only the beginning and envisions
the show moving on to PBS, Showtime or Lifetime.
