The 2005 Queer Comedy Festival in Santa Monica, California is condensed into this collection of its funniest stand up and sketch comedy moments. Over twenty comics are represented, including lesbians Lea DeLaria, Page Hurwitz, Karen Ripley, Sabrina Matthews, Stephanie Howard and Jen Slusser.
DeLaria is outrageous in her comments on George and Laura Bush and their daughters, as well as lamenting ‘the pregnant lesbian thing.’ She headlined the festival and closes the dvd by singing ‘Butch Woman Blues.’
Another show stealer is Nora Burns (The New Women, The Broken Hearts Club) from The Nellie Olesons, a comedy troupe. She spoofs right winger Ann Coulter.
Gay comics include Bob Smith (Coming Out Party), Jason Stuart (Gia, Out There in Hollywood), Mark Davis (Out There, Out There 2), Andre Kelley, Jerry Calumn, Jason Dudey, Roy Cruz, Charlie Vaughn, Babloo, Ariana and Bill Cruz.
Some backstage discussion with many of the comics is integrated into the dvd. Overall, it’s great fun and full of laughs. For some comics like Matthews, Hurwitz or Smith, some of the material may be familiar from other television or dvd appearances, but it’s still funny the second time around! (AB)
