Press


"...Near goth [and] wickedly gloomy, Meghan Hounshell's understatement and timing are unparalleled among her generation of yucksters. I am a sucker for the kind of joke that's a string of one liners, each building on and topping the last, and Hounshell's got that nailed." (Leslie Berman)
- The Times of Southwest Louisiana


"It's a lineup that picked on local superstores, the federal government, Humvees driven in the suburbs instead of Baghdad, and sleeping with pool boys. And then there was Meghan Hounshell.

Hounshell's songs about the origin of a punk-rock baby and being mistaken for a lesbian -- and the accompanying technical difficulties on her guitar -- made for one of the highlights of the evening" (Athima Chansanchai)
- Seattle Post Intelligencer


Seriously, these songs that she's performing are absolute genius, and she's so compelling and likeable on stage as she's singing them... She hit it out of the park, and that's mighty tough to do when you're up that early. Nicely done, Meghan." (Peter Greyy of www.seattlecomedy.net) - www.seattlecomedy.net
