Comedian and media personality Monique Marvez is someone who believes that laughter is the salve that keeps reality from scarring, so everything in her life that wasn’t fun at the time became material. After quitting a lucrative day job, she drove more than a million miles—literally!—in order to find a place where she could feel at home, at peace, and at ease in her own skin. Her in-your-face, fearless comedy performances earned her the respect of her peers and the admiration of her ever-growing following.After the collapse of her second marriage and a wretched rebound relationship, she fell into a mind-numbing depression. With her judgment clouded and her self-esteem at a new low, she went on to date a dazzling array of clown men and pinheads. As is frequently the case with smart women, the worse her personal life got, the more her career thrived! She’d walk onstage thinking, What can you people do to me that the jerk I’m involved with or the bank that holds my car loan hasn’t done already?! But somehow, all the pain paid off when she finally realized that the joke was on her!Through Monique’s truly poignant, often-hilarious, and very relatable story, you’ll see how the things you fear most—pain, humiliation, and risk—are really the things you need most in order to grow.
