Going Undercover for The Church Lady

Kitty’s in the business of other peoples infidelities. That is to say, she’s a private investigator. So, when she told the packed crowd at last night’s Slam about the time she was hired by the “Church Lady” to go undercover, Dana Carvey’s 1990’s comedy routine came to my mind. You remember… “Well isn’t that special?!”

Carvey’s sketch character pretty much sums up the woman from Kitty’s story- your iconic personification of virtue complete with orthopedic oxfords. In her story, the “Church Lady” hires Kitty to snoop on her husband who she suspects is not as virtuous as she.

How many sinners will turn up by the end of Kitty’s story? The answer may surprise you. Watch the video of her winning performance from last night’s Slam below.
