Better Than Vicodin

So last night was the first night of the new Gay Comedy night at the historic Improv in Hollywood.

It was just absolutely fantastic!!!! I overheard someone at the bar after the show saying, "I laughed so hard for 2 solid hours - I feel so good right now it's better than taking a vicodin".

The organizers of the event are three sensational stand ups: Jennie McNulty, Erin Foley and Jason Dudey.

They were all absolutely hysterical. And what a joy to jokes by and about our community!

Jennie regailed us with her journeys to P Town and how it's gotten so straight lately that she compelled her gay brothers to fly out there and have sex in the open all over that town to get rid of the straight people. "We can't do it, boys. If we do, that just brings more of them!" She also regailed us with her perfect wedding scenario which was basically a lesbian football game with vows.

Suzanne Westenhoefer was outstanding, outspoken and way out there as usual and just KILLED. She was completely uncensored and off the wall. She talked about her adventures at the Gay Games had so many brilliant jokes I couldn't even tell you, but people in the packed audience were just screaming.

Jason told tales of doing comedy clubs in all the most remote small towns across America and how it was so hard to find gay people in those places he actually had to carry a compact around so he could see another gay man.

There were also a ton of great jokes about Senator Craig as could only be told from the gay perspective. Bruce Daniels said that bathroom bit was so old school-Judy loving-Wayland FLowers- and-Madame gay, that he needs to wake up and realize WE HAVE CRAIGS LIST NOW FOR THAT.

But my favorite was Erin Foley and Shawn Pelofsky doing a improv of how it would look if lesbians tried to pick each other up in bathrooms like that. Fucking hysterical.

Okay, it was awesome, I can't do it justice, just GO NEXT MONTH. I got a sneak peak at next month's line up and I can't say until it's finalized, but it will be just as awesome.

I am so glad you posted about the show. I laughed so hard, my sides still hurt.

I can't wait for next month. And I want to go to that show at Akbar on Tuesday.
