Stand-up Kate Davis likes to joke that the only time she has to herself is when she's onstage with a mic. She's not kidding. Davis is the mother of three, and she's one of the few female stand-ups who's built an act out of her domestic situation. Not that diaper-changing and babysitting jokes are part of her repertoire - Davis lets rip raunchy tales about female sexuality, from the ins and outs of dildos to envisioning what it'd be like if humans mated like cats. Davis joins Debra DiGiovanni, Kristeen von Hagen and other funny females in Myles Of Smyles, a fundraiser for the Susan Westmoreland Legacy Fund for cancer in pregnancy research. This Friday at the Isabel Bader.
