The Dinah Comedy Night brings together three of the most acclaimed female stand up comics, Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. at The Palm Springs Convention Center, in what is poised to be an unforgettable evening of hilarious stand-up comedy.
Fortune Feimster, who landed her writer/performer spot with “Chelsea Lately” six months after her appearance on “Last Comic Standing” where she was a semifinalist, will be joined by another Last Comic Standing alumni, British comic Gina Yashere, and stand up’s fastest rising star, Erin Foley.
Guaranteeing a laugh-fest, Feimster, Foley, and Yashere offer the perfect explosive mix of comedy! This high-energy, uniquely creative, hysterical trio will deliver a diverse range of topics, styles, and flavors, giving something for everyone of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds to enjoy.
The loveable Southern comic, Feimster is a full-time writer and performer on E!’s popular late night talk show “Chelsea Lately” with Chelsea Handler . When not giving funny commentary on the latest news in pop culture, she can be seen imitating the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Christina Aguilera, Honey Boo Boo, and Mama June.
Her co-star, Gina Yashere has been a stand up and TV star in the UK for several years. She broke onto the American comedy scene with her appearances on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” (where she made it to the final 10) and on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno (NBC), as Madame Yashere, The Surly Psychic. The Hollywood Reporter recently named her “one of the top 10 rising talents”. Her bombastic delivery, infectious personality and cheeky observations have wowed audiences not just in the UK and the US, but also around the world.
Without a doubt one of the lesbian community’s favorite rising stars, Erin Foley is a hugely talented comedian with a style and wit that has earned her a strong and respectable following. She’s also a gifted actress whose impeccable comedic timing and ease in front of the camera has placed her alongside the most sought-after funny ladies working in entertainment today. From New York City’s comedy club circuit to her Gays R Us show at the Hollywood Improv, Foley is on a roll and everywhere. She recently appeared for the second time on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”, was just seen guest-starring in an episode of the hugely popular web series “Little Horribles,” and is set to be going on “Last Call With Carson Daly” next week.
Celebrating its milestone 24th Anniversary, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend, the largest and biggest lesbian event in the world, is, once again, upping the volume on your laughter, bringing together the perfect mix of lesbian comics. For more information on Dinah Comedy Night visit www.TheDinah.com.
