We all know laughter is good for us. It's even better for LGBTQ audiences when we can laugh with the jokes rather than being laughed at. Happily for us, Dekkoo and Comedy Dynamics are releasing a show that promises diversely queer, outrageously hilarious, and delightfully relatable stand-up comedy in their new special Out on Stage: The Series.The show offers an eclectic lineup of LGBTQ comedians you know and love — or need to know so you can love them — including Irene Tu, Raneir Pollard, A.B. Cassidy, and more.
Host Zach Noe Towers, one of Out's "2018 Comedians to Watch," knows the importance of having a mike and a stage to share your voice, especially if our voices are usually marginalized. "I would even be willing to bet that every queer comic out there has had to sit and listen to someone turn their life into a punch line," he says. "And this is why projects like Out on Stage are so important. It not only provides a platform for new queer voices on the rise, but it brings us together. It creates a space for diverse voices to flourish, and it's so important to have this kind of representation available."
