Very cool! A Colorado mom and comedian, Rubi Nicholas, won Nick at Nite’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America.” I haven’t met Rubi yet… but I’m thrilled a Colorado Comedian won. Congrats!
From The Denver Post:

Rubi Nicholas works long hours as an assistant vice president at a health care insurance carrier in Denver. At 36, she has two young daughters, a husband, a house in Castle Rock and dreams of becoming a comedian.

She’s a Muslim of Pakistani descent who married a Greek Orthodox man. Her husband converted to Islam, and became a stay-at-home dad so she could get her MBA and become a corporate executive.

Now she’s writing and performing jokes about her life as a working mom and Muslim. Last week, she won Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America 2, a TV competition that resembles an “American Idol” for comedians.

And she will soon develop a comedic TV pilot about her life.
