Queer Queens of Qomedy

Comedic royalty is on its way back to the Alamo City. Poppy Champlin’s ‘Queer Queens of Qomedy’ is an all-lesbian stand-up tour that blends jokes about life, love and current events with musical parodies sure to make you laugh out loud. “Last year, San Antonio really came out, so this is the first time I’ve brought the same comedians back for a second year,” Champlin told the San Antonio Current. Once dubbed "America’s Funniest Woman" by the late Joan Rivers, Champlin (pictured) has shared the stage with Ray Romano, Dennis Leary, Rosie O’Donnell and more. Her witty weekly web series, “News You Can’t Use,” satirizes recent headlines à la The Daily Show and The Onion. Also returning are Texas Natives Sandra Valls and Vickie Shaw. Valls, originally from Laredo, was featured on the award-winning Latin Divas of Comedy in 2007 and Beaumont’s Shaw can be seen on numerous specials on the LOGO channel. $20-$30, 8pm Thu, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com. — Luke Anthony Schulte
