This Saturday at The Triple Door, a comedienne, actress and jazz musician that speaks our kind of language will be in our presence. Lea Delaria is a true American with a heart of gold. DeLaria was the first openly gay comic to break onto the late-night talk-show scene with her appearance in 1993 on “The Arsenio Hall Show”. She was also the host of Comedy Central’s first all-gay stand-up comedy special, “Out There”. With over 25 years of experience in the business, she is an extremely prominent figure in the grand world of lesbian stand-up comedy. Her raunchy persona and inflammatory, irreverent political commentary has proven controversial tides inside and outside the gay and lesbian community.
Since day one, she has billed herself as “That F$%^ing Dyke”.
“I called myself that because I would walk down the street and people would yell (it) at me. But after two years of performing I would walk down the street and people would yell (it) at me and I wouldn’t know if they were a fan or not!” -Lea DeLaria
DeLaria is our kind of women and you can see her this Saturday at The Triple Door. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 day of show at the door. The Doors open at 6:00pm with the full service of food, drinks and conversation that The Triple Door has to offer. This event is all ages and is a night not to miss out on this fabulous and fantastic woman.
