If you follow rising star comedian Heather McMahan (heatherontour.com) on social media, you already know she’s as funny offstage as she is onstage. It’s that unedited look into her daily life—with husband Jeff, their two French bulldogs, and her hilariously candid mother Robin—that has fans flocking to her sold-out shows, waiting for the release of her NBC series, I Can’t Right Now, and tuning in weekly to her chart-topping podcast, Absolutely Not! with Heather McMahan. Now, the Atlanta-bred funny gal is headed to Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas (wynnlasvegas.com) Aug. 19 for her Sin City debut. Here, she gets personal.
