Advocate.com's “9 LGBT Friendly Comedy Shows You Should Be Supporting”
On Tuesday September 29th, Queer Comedy at Zanies welcomes SNL contributing writer M Dickson! The all-inclusive comedy show will be hosted by creator Adam Guerino and feature Ali Clayton, Martin Morrow, Ray Lauk and present the hilarious drag queen Dixie Lynn Cartwright to the historic Zanies stage.
M Dickson writes jokes. Sometimes she tells them on stage. Sometimes she types ’em up and sells them to big old television companies and once she put them down in a book that Lewis Black called “a must read“. She's been seen on MTV, FUSE, Last Comic Standing + VH1 and was a contributing writer to SNL's Weekend Update. M tours the country and can often be seen headlining for Atlantis Events.
Queer Comedy at Zanies has put ongoing queer-inclusive comedy in the historic comedy club Zanies for over 4 years. Since its inception in 2011, Queer Comedy has been named the Advocate.com‘s “9 LGBT Friendly Comedy Shows You Should Be Supporting,” featured in Chicago Tribune’s “Stand-up Scene,” Timeout Chicago‘s “Critic’s Pick,” The Redeye’s “Do” and included in Chicago Reader’s “The Agenda” and “Culture Vulture” with the praise “More, please.”
Previous comedians have included James Adomian, Cameron Esposito, Beth Stelling, Brad Loekle, Matteo Lane, Liza Treyger, Megan Gailey, Joel Kim Booster and more. Comedians who have appeared at Queer Comedy have also appeared on Conan, Comedy Central, Chelsea Lately, @Midnight, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, BET, TBS Just For Laughs, SXSW, Comedy Bang Bang, The Pete Holmes Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, A Night At The Apollo, and Last Comic Standing. For four years and counting, every Queer Comedy show continues to demonstrate that no matter whether audience members are queer or straight, laughter knows no sexuality.
