If you're Barack Obama, you'd be glad to have this quartet of comedians on your side. With the motto “swinging the swing states back to blue,” the Obama Girls of Comedy — Carolyn Castiglia (VH-1, Last Comic Standing), Claudia Cogan (Sirius Raw Dog Comedy), Calise Hawkins (Comedy Central, NBC's Stand-Up for Diversity and Last Comic Standing) and Giulia Rozzi — are stopping in our fair battleground state to roast some Republicans. With so much controversy surrounding the selection of a female running mate with such fundamentalist values, the Palin-punishing material promises to scathe and scintillate. Republicans, swing voters and light-hearted liberals can catch these comics at the Canal Club on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m. $10-$12. 643-2582.
