ANN ARBOR – Suzanne Westenhoefer will bring her hilariously topical comedy act to The Ark in Ann Arbor on Sept. 25.
Westenhoefer is known for her fresh and provocative take on the world from a sassy lesbian perspective. She doesn’t mince words and she’s not shy about her opinions. But she doesn’t limit herself to gay humor, either. According to LA Weekly, “Her act covers the universality of humanness.”
Westenhoefer got her start in comedy at a New York City cabaret when she entered a contest on a dare and soon became known as “the gay girl in straight clubs.”
No stranger to TV, Westenhoefer came out of the closet nationally during her first appearance on the small screen in a 1991 episode of the Sally Jesse Raphael talk show titled “Lesbians Who Don’t Look Like Lesbians.” Westenhoefer has since appeared on Comedy Central, and such shows as Evening at the Improv, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, and Politically Incorrect. Westenhoefer has also starred in her own HBO comedy special, which was nominated for a Cable ACE award.
Westenhoefer also has some best-selling comedy CDs under her belt including “Nothing in My Closet but My Clothes” and “I’m Not Cindy Brady,” both of which received a Gay and Lesbian American Music Award (GLAMA).
