FAIRFIELD — You can put away the disco ball for this ladies night. Just come prepared to laugh, as four female comics bring their talents to the Uptown Theatre on July 27.

Christina Pazsitzky, Tammy Pescatelli, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Loni Love are the women behind the laughs.

Pazsitzky has been seen on Tru TVʼs “Worldʼs Dumbest,” as a roundtable regular on E!ʼs “Chelsea Lately” and in Showtime’s “Live From Amsterdam Series!”

Pescatelli has been a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Dennis Miller,” and as a featured comic on PAX’s “Balderdash,” National Lampoon’s “Funny Money” and Comedy Central’s “The World Stands Up.”

Rajskub is an actress, comedienne and singer who is best known as a co-star of Kiefer Sutherland on the popular television series “24.″

Love was a guest host for “GSN Live” as well as a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately” and Tru TV’s “Smoking Gun Presents.”

“I love all the women on the show,” said Rajskub in a phone interview.

What will these women talk about? The fine line between “male bashing and male loving,” Rajskub said.

Rajskub joined “24” as a recurring character in the second season and became a regular in fourth season. Outside of Sutherland, she has the second longest run on the eight-season show.

She also did comedy during that time.

Fans of the TV show recognized her from the role of Chloe O’Brian immediately. Others, who haven’t seen the show, identify her with her comedy act, she said.

There are those who just can’t place her or remember her during one guest shot as Gail the Snail on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” The saliva-slurping character was “annoying and disgusting,” she said, “but quite the hit.” Rajskub said she’s even seen some homemade Gail the Snail T-shirts.

“That couldn’t be farther away from being Chloe,” she said. “It’s always interesting when people are not sure what they are going to get.”

Her almost-5-year-old son, Valentine Anthony Rolph, is who makes this comic laugh.

“He’s so funny,” she said. “He’s so honest. He’s so innocent.”

Rajskub would love to have a role in “24: Live Another Day,” which is slated to premiere next May.

“As soon as I find out definitely, I’ll get it on Twitter,” she said. “I’m pretty confident they want me involved. I have high hopes.”

Rajskub’s film roster includes “Firewall” opposite Harrison Ford, “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde,” ” Dude, Where’s My Car?” and “Road Trip.”

She was a cast member on the HBO sketch comedy series “Mr. Show with Bob and David” and “The Larry Sanders Show.”
