EstroFest is back in front of live audiences this weekend, and the ladies are ready.

"I prefer to create sort of like a little world of weirdness and absurdity,” said Allison Roberts. “That's just what I love doing."

It’s been two years since the all-women comedy troupe last performed in front of live audiences. They're returning as part of the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival.

They’re playing two shows: 8 p.m. Friday and 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the JCC’s Hart Theatre, 1200 Edgewood Ave.
