The Gag’s All Here

October 27, 2019 @ 4:15 pm

The gag’s all here in this program of riotous, fanciful, and wacky shorts filled to the brim with their own personal brands of humor, hijinks, and hilarity relating to the queer experience. Featuring a history of flagging, a talking fish, a transgressive PSA parody, and a stripper with godly powers, this collection presents a variety of comedic styles sharing one common bond: they bring the funny.
Total Running Time: 89 min

Q&A to follow

Presented in partnership with Rooftop Films and the Upright Citizens Brigade.

After these shorts, stick around for the Queer Comedian Storytelling Hour, featuring Gabe Gonzalez, Alex Song, Phillip Henry, Pat Regan, and many more! Get your tickets here!
