No one ever accused Suzanne of being subtle, not the shuttle driver who took her to the airport, the woman she was in line with at the grocery store yesterday and certainly not her audiences. Subtle, she is not.

After 25 years of groundbreaking, stereotype-shattering and brutally honest comedy, she’s not about to start pulling punches now.

The kid from Amish Country who began her comedy career on a dare is celebrating a quarter century of out, open, no-holds-barred comedy.

Suzanne tells the truth. The truth is life is funny, especially when it’s fermented in Suzanne’s mind. That’s why she could never be in the closet, making her a trailblazer when she started doing stand-up in the 1990s. She was the first openly lesbian comedian with an HBO Special and the first openly lesbian comedian on “Late Night with David Letterman.”

Heck, she was on Sally Jesse Raphael in 1991 on a show called “Breaking the Lesbian Stereotype…Lesbians Who Don’t Look Like Lesbians.” From “OMG, a lesbian has long hair and wears make up” to “I went to Helen and Jane’s wedding last weekend,” that’s how far we’ve come in the 25 years Suzanne has been telling her truth to audiences all over the world. Some of that is certainly thanks to her candor, courage and charisma.

Suzanne never does the same show twice. She can’t. She doesn’t write anything down. She charges boldly onto the stage and what happens is always a mystery and a delight. Enjoy a wild night of comedy. more >>>

Named "A Comic To Watch" by The Huffington Post, Nicky Paris' started as a standup comedian New York City at the ripe age of 17, where he became a fixture in the Big Apple's comedy circuit, performing nightly with comedy's greats in the city's most acclaimed venues.

He was asked to join The Wendy Williams Show as an on-air talent using his sharp wit and love for juicy, celebrity gossip for Wendy’s #StreetTalk segments, where he quickly became a regular for the segment on the hit talk show. Soon after, Elite Daily tapped Paris to become one of their lead cast members for their hit web show GEN WHY, where he has represented millennials for over six seasons along with some of the biggest internet personalities on the web. After starring in a viral Pokemon Go sketch, the dazzling comic then appeared in the Off-Broadway Production of My Big Gay Italian Funeral as well as on a handful of MTV specials: Epic Fails of 2015, 2016, It's Complicated and Video Love and was featured in Lifetime's promotional campaign for the Britney: Ever After biopic.
