*Comic pioneer and notorious stand-up comedy snob Bob Smith has stated, under oath, that, “this is the smartest and funniest line-up of LGBT comedians I’ve ever seen! It should not be missed!”
Legendary Kate Clinton is the author of three acclaimed books and is celebrating her 30th year of making folks laugh with a national tour of her new show, The GLEE party. In May Kate will release her 9th comedy collection: Lady Ha Ha.
Eddie Sarfaty has vented his neurosis on Comedy Central, Logo, The Today Show and The Joy Behar Show. His debut collection of comic essays, Mental, was highly praised by Michael Cunningham, Edmund White and Christopher Bram.
Erin Foley is the fresh face of LGBT comedy. She’s been featured at the Montreal Comedy Festival three times and recently taped her own half hour special for Comedy Central Presents.
Andre Kelley, America’s favorite gay farm boy, is making his NYC debut after headlining across the nation and appearing on Comedy Central, VH1, and SiTV.
And from Toronto, Elvira Kurt has appeared in her own Comedy Central special and is the host of her own TV show on The Comedy Network.
