CROSS-COUNTRY COMEDY IS NO BARREL OF LAUGHS

SHARE CROSS-COUNTRY COMEDY IS NO BARREL OF LAUGHS

After 11 years appearing in comedy clubs across the country, Cathy Ladman says she sees a decline in the quality of comedy, and adds that life on the road can be tiring.

Ladman, 37, who appeared at the Comedy Connection in Boston this past weekend, told the Boston Herald that comedy "has gone from jazz to pop to Muzak. It's getting harder to distinguish one comedian from another."She said she still enjoys going to clubs and performing but has cut back. "The road has changed and I've changed my goals." She said people tend to romanticize the rootless lifestyle because it is supposed to be glamorous, but "from where I am, living out of a suitcase is not where I really want to be."

She said she would like to have a family and is working on an idea for a sitcom. "Oh. I'm beginning to sound like such a cliche."
