A Funny Housewife!
Linda Belt is a funny housewife who can make anyone laught. From G-rated to R-rated material, Linda has it all. Often compared to Joan Rivers and Joy Behar, Ms. Belt has found her calling.
After being a PTA mom Linda finally gave in to her inner struggle as a suburban pillar-of-the-community and began her stand-up comedy career. Her unique style of observational humor touches on the absurdities of modern life which include such themes as marriage, sex (or lack thereof), parenting, and social mores. Best of all Linda's husband thinks she’s playing mah-jongg.
