Suzanne Westenhoefer’s ground-breaking career has taken off as the first openly gay comedian ever to appear on television. Westenhoefer has made appearances on Letterman, HBO, Bravo, Logo, and GSN, as well as, in live performances across the US in popular theaters, clubs, and fundraisers.
After accepting a dare, she began her career performing gay-themed material to straight audiences in popular comedy clubs in New York City. She later went on to host her own HBO Comedy Special in 1994, which earned a Cable Ace Award nomination.
Suzanne Westenhoefer is one of today’s leading iconic lesbian stand-up comedians. In 2006 she starred as a panelist on GSN’s remake of I’ve Got a Secret, featuring a panel of gay celebrities who had to guess the various guests’ ‘secrets’ through various timed questions. In 2007, Westenhoefer’s comedy special and documentary, A Bottom on Top, aired on LOGO Television and in previous years of her career, Westenhoefer was featured in the film Laughing Matters along with Kate Clinton, Marga Gomez and Karen Williams.
Hitting the cold hard truth and taking a stab at the funny bone, Westenhoefer speaks about her role in a post-production film, recent divorce, and challenge in re-entering the craziness of the dating world. Audience members can expect an evening of non-stop inappropriate comedy!
“We are all in for a night of laughter” said Dan Spellens, Director of Theaters & Entertainment for SMG at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. “We look forward to welcoming back Ms. Westenhoefer to the Center Theater,” he concluded.
