For those who enjoy the crass, shock-seeking jokes of, say, Sarah Silverman's early career, then Lahna Turner is the up-and-coming funny lady for you. A mom of two, she jokes about the everyday adventures of marriage and kids sans social filter—whether referring to her kids as douchebags or her half-completed bikini shaving as a "mullet," Turner aims right for the politically-incorrect bulls-eye with her nothing-held-back attitude. And we like her for that. She even sings a little, and she'll bring her acoustic guitar onstage this week at the Brea Improv to serenade you with original comedic lullabies—perhaps from her album Dick Jokes and Other Assorted Love Songs.
