They say laughter is the best medicine. The same can be said about sex. However, in the landscape of comedy in all forms of media, sex is often the butt of the joke. When it comes to the topic of sexual identity, way too often that representation is under attack for the purpose of humor and if you’re a person of color, it can feel, at times, like an assault.
As a sex positive comedic performer, how can you coexist in a business that appears to define you as the ‘other’ and unwanted for the purpose of comic effect?
The landscape has changed, audiences member are constantly violating the sanctity of the stage, and now more performers are finding themselves in a position where they have to fight back.
In this panel moderated by stand up comic and college professor Ken Cosby, Rosie Tran, Diana Hong, and Vanessa Gritton will discuss of the joys and pitfalls of being a sex positive comic in today’s world as well as how to use the power of comedy to heal, defend, and enjoy who you are as an individual in your every day life.
Come hang out for a full night of comedy, cocktails, music, and story telling! One ticket gets your access to both shows.
Broke LA Comedy Hour features some of the best comics in LA, giving you the chance to see them in a cool, intimate setting.
Hosted by Vanessa Gritton
Then after that you can hang out and listen to some tunes before switching rooms to catch a live edition of Story Poker.

Hosted by Omid Singh and Jeffrey Baldinger
