Everyone's had a few jobs--Mary Ann's had 51! Fresh from this year's Footloose Women on the Way Festival, Mary Ann upgrades her stand up comedy and musical cabaret chops to reveal how to smoke that job interview; balance many career hats at once; and have a personality schism with comedy and flair! "From California cuisine server to pre-school teacher to phone-sex responder to real estate agent to cabaret singer, Ms. Boyd manages to juggle this multi-faceted routine with spot-on-timing, lightning speed and a great singing voice. Light-hearted and entertaining, 51 and Counting makes you realize that even the worst of job opportunities have potential for comic treatment, and if anyone can mine the gold from the dross, Mary Ann Boyd can do it." Linda Ayres-Frederick, SF Bay Times
