Fun at Comix

I was invited to go see Lea DeLaria's Big Gay Comedy Show last night at Comix, and it was hilarious!

Me and Lea DeLariaI mean, I always thought that gay people, and lesbians (lest I be chided by the angry dikes), were funny in general; but the lineup yesterday shot right past funny into ludicrous. And you know it's going to be a good time when someone jokes about going down on Laura Bush... and then enacts it.

"Like a triscuit... crinkle crinkle crinkle!"


Great performances throughout, and kudos to plus-sized burlesque star Glenn Marla! And a reality star sighting - Josie from Top Chef Season 2!

Update: Speaking of Josie, I saw this article on how she was the victim of an anti-gay assault in Long Island. Seeing her this past Monday, I'm glad to know she's out and about, looking fabulous.

I've stolen my fave line about camping from DeLaria: "My idea of roughing it is a hotel with no room service."

So true, so true.

oh my gosh, I didn't know something that bad happened to Josie... and it was on Long Island!! *gasp*

Long Island actually has a lot of hate crimes- mostly in Suffolk County. I totally hate crime. like, it sucks and stuff

Hey, there are not a lot of hate crimes here! Geez! But I will admit that Suffolk isn't exactly the Village. With that said, we know lots of gay folks happily living out east. Hopefully, between them and good organizations, like our favorite, LIGALY, progress will continue to be made.

Even so, hate crimes happen way too often, even in places like Greenwich Village, so there's still a long way to go.
