Barb Neligan

Comedian, Writer


Barb started doing standup in the early 1980’s while in college in Chattanooga, Tennessee. From there she moved to Chicago where she spent five years honing her improvisational comedy skills.

She moved to Nashville in 1995 and began a writing stint that included scripting such epic dramas as “Country’s Most Shocking: Stories Behind Southern Rock and Outlaw Country” which aired on CMT. If you get a chance to watch it, it will change your life.

Barb is back out on the comedy circuit and is busy shouting out witty commentary–on everything from congress and cotillions to cyberspace and carnivals–to strangers as they pass by her on the way to the bar.
