GS_HEADSHOT“Wendy put together a wonderful selection of funny, creative people including herself. I love the environment, and I loved every single person that I saw. Please let everyone know that it was a treat to see a handful of extremely funny, truthful, eloquent, and I dare say, special people.”

KellyCarlin“With Tasty Words, Wendy has created one of the most inviting spaces to perform in. I always feel that my work will be met by an audience that is smart, open and hungry to share the human experience. The audience is there because Wendy attracts them. On top of that, she has created one of the healthiest artistic communities that I’ve ever been in. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of her world.”
Kelly Carlin, author “Carlin Home Companion: Growing Up With George”


HughFink“Wendy Hammers and Tasty Words is everything this comedian/writer dreams of. A tightly produced program filled with A-List talent that gets to perform in front of a smart, appreciative crowd. And to top it all off, Wendy is such a pro that she not only seamlessly keeps the show interesting, but she also gets your credits right when you’re introduced. I hope Tasty Words continues to enjoy the success it richly deserves.”
Hugh Fink, former head writer for SNL
