Like the return of the swallows to Capistrano and Italy putting Amanda Know on trial, the COME OUT LAUGHING Comedy Tour appears to be an annual thing. Returning to the Theatre Off Jackson in the International District for the second year in a row (or, is it the third?) the trio of funny queer comedians will be yucking it up this weekend, Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1.
Come Out Laughing was started by Jason Dudey in 2008 after he decided to launch a gay, gay-friendly, who-cares-who-you-are-or-w
ho’s-in-your-bed, comedy show in Southern California. Because the regular monthly show in Long Beach at the world famous Laugh Factory has gained so much success and national acclaim, three of the regular headlining comedians decided to join forces to launch a national tour that will bring the country a show they have never seen before.
Jason Dudey, Dana Goldberg, and Ian Harvie are a comedic powerhouse. They represent some of the best gay, lesbian and transgendered comics on the circuit today. These three comedians have headlined clubs, theaters, festivals, Universities and colleges all over the country and abroad. They have been seen on LOGO, Comics Unleashed, and Wisecrack. Each comic brings his or her own style to the stage, but the cohesion and brilliance of the show plays off of each comedian’s strength and delivers an edu-taining slant on the LGBT community that will open your minds and your hearts and leave your sides hurting from laughter. Audience members gay and straight alike are raving about Come Out Laughing.
This show has already sold out the Friday and Saturday shows at 8 pm but they’ve added a 10 pm show for Saturday, February 1 and a FEW tickets remain….go snatch them up if you want to see this very funny trio.
