AT THE LGBT CENTER’S RENBERG THEATRE
Saturday, February 7 at 8pm
The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center has announced the one-night-only return of Julie Goldman in her new comedy extravaganza Take A Walk on the Softer Side at the Renberg Theatre on Saturday, February 7, at 8pm.
Irreverent. Outrageous. Hilarious. Charming. Soft? That’s not a word usually associated with Julie Goldman, one of the hottest young comedians working today. A star of The Big Gay Sketch Show on LOGO, The Provincetown Banner called Goldman, “a master of irreverent cultural criticism that will have you laughing so hard you reach the edge of tears and beyond.” The Banner concluded, “She is a must see.”
Goldman describes herself as “the worst lesbian in the world” and is renowned for her brash mix of humor, observation, and music (she plays guitar at a third grade level, specializing in lesbian folk-rock realness). She has three TV comedy specials under her belt which have been seen on LOGO, Showtime, and Comedy Central, and she has appeared on Bones, RuPaul’s Drag U, Happy Endings, The Mindy Project, MTV’s Faking It, among others. Goldman performs her comedy standup all over the country.
Opening for Julie Goldman will be comedy star Teddy Margas, a founding member of ‘The Queers of Comedy’ and a cast member in the hit stage show Streeptease. Margas has toured the country for the past 10 years and now lives in West Hollywood where he co-hosts a weekly comedy show at Fubar with Mikey Scott.
General admission tickets for Julie Goldman’s Take A Walk on the Softer Side are $20 and may be purchased online at www.lalgbtcenter.org/theatre or by phone at (323) 860-7300. Net proceeds from ticket sales will support the full range of free and low-cost programs and services offered by the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre is located at the Village at Ed Gould Plaza, 1125 N. McCadden Place (one block east of Highland, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard), in Hollywood. Free onsite parking is available.
