Smart bets: Lady Parts Justice League

In an election cycle in which politicians evade consequences for sexual misconduct, the Lady Parts Justice League sheds light on the blatant sexism of this strange modern landscape. Lizz Winstead, co-creator of “The Daily Show,” conceived LPJL and the comedy show “You Should Smile More and Other Manspirational Observations” with the most hilariously liberal comics in the business. Winstead will begin her North Carolinia tour in Asheville. “We see how hard your activists work and want to bring a catharsis and have some fun at the expense of the crappy politicians trying to destroy the civil liberties of way too many people in the Tar Heel State,” she says. The show, featuring Winstead with Helen Hong, Joyelle Johnson and Buzz Off, Lucille, takes the stage at The Grey Eagle on Sunday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m. $17/$20. Photo by Michael Young
