Etta May Etta

What’s the best way to describe Etta May? “Minnie Pearl with a migraine.” To put it simply, when Etta May takes the stage, she is the reigning Queen of Southern Sass and Your Woman for the 21st Century! This colorful comedienne, known for her trademark floral blouse, polyester pants, horn-rimmed glasses, and print bandana, used to tip the scale at an impressive 250 pounds. Having dropped over a hundred pounds she reflects, saying “You know you’re getting fat when you sit in the bathtub and the water in the toilet rises!”
