What to Expect
15-60 minutes of standup comedy (depending on your need). Material varies in subject matter: family, LGBT issues, Judaism, overview of religion in general. Performances can include a little bit of "crowdwork" (interaction with the audience), and can also be clean (non-risqué subject matter). Performances have no "swear" words.
Please feel free to reply with questions.
Dana Friedman is, in all likelihood, New York's first Orthodox Jewish, transsexual comic. Her performances address a wide variety of topics, including many outside the very unusual norms of standup comedy.
She is the producer of "Queernucopia An Evening of LGBT and Allied Comedy Goddesses and Heathens ", and "Right Down The Middle (East), (no missionaries, just funny positions)", which brings together Muslim, Jewish, Israeli, Arab, and Palestinian standup comics.
She was selected for the She-Devil Comedy Festival, and its "Best Of The Fest" show. Dana has also appeared with or opened for Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Yanis Pappas, Christian Finnegan, Julia Scotti, Tim Dillon, and other major headliners at clubs and theaters all over the U.S..
Additional Booking Notes
All I require is a microphone, and amplification sufficient for the space in which the performance is to take place.
