Aisha and I had been talking for months about wanting to go to a comedy show. So when my friend invited me to see her partner do stand-up alongside other comedians at ImprovBoston’s monthly Queer Qomedy Hour in Cambridge, I got tickets almost immediately! Queer + comedy = yes, absolutely, please and thank you! And only $5 per ticket? Extra yes.
It ended up being a sold-out show, so I’m glad we got tickets in advance. The theater is small, so it has an intimate, informal vibe. Perfect for stand-up. There were five or six comedians and all of them were genuinely hilarious! The show did a great job representing across the LGBTQ spectrum, I was pleasantly surprised. Some jokes were queer-focused (obviously, it’s Queer Qomedy!), but not all.
I’m so glad to know this exists as a monthly event and will definitely be going back.
