She's a Riot

She's a Riot


Suzanne Westenhoefer gives her Dinah predictions before her performance tonight at the year's biggest lesbian party.

Suzanne Westenhoefer can make 'em laugh with the best of them. The veteran comedian has graced stages everywhere and has appeared on countless TV shows that impress even the biggest comedy nerds: Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, Arli$$, and Caroline's Comedy Hour, to name a few. Thursday night she plays The Dinah -- an extended weekend of pro golf and good times in Palm Springs, Calif., and the biggest lesbian weekend this side of, well, anything -- for her 13th time.

What is performing at The Dinah like for you?

It's hard to explain. It's completely worth doing. I've been performing there every year since 1995, so this will be my 13th show. This is one of the best things I get to do all year. It is not a difficult crowd at all. It's basically a vacation in Palm Springs where I happen to work.

Explain what The Dinah is like for you, for those who won't be there this year.

Well, I can tell you it's not like it's an ordinary Thursday night. There are lesbians doing pyramids by the pool -- you don't see that too often. The next morning, on Friday, there will be lesbians all over Palm Springs, just everywhere. But it's really exciting each year. I remember seven or eight years ago, it rained, and it didn't change a thing. It was just a bunch of women having a good time in the rain -- you can imagine what kind of good time that was.

What makes you laugh?

I don't really like that silly, slapstick kind of stuff, like falling down. I really enjoy comedy and comedians. But it is more fun when I'm onstage making the comedy.

What are your predictions for this weekend?

I think someone is going to hook up. I think of all of these women out there in Palm Springs this weekend, at least one is bound to hook up. And we'll enjoy ourselves. And if my girlfriend goes with me, there will be dancing. I can guarantee that.

Westenhoefer will take the stage tonight at 7 at the Doral Resort.
