About The Queer Queens of Comedy
From Showtime’s’ Pride the Gay and Lesbian Comedy Slam, Poppy Champlin has been knocking em out with the funny for 25 years. Poppy is producing this three-city tour that goes from St Petersburg, to Richmond to the Virginia Beach FunnyBone. Headlining the Tour is LGBTQ comedy favorite Vickie Shaw. Vickie is from Texas where she observes that, “The speed limit, is a suggestion.” A veteran comic who’s beautiful Southern Style belies her sharp edged wit and hilarity, was part of Comedy Central’s flagship show Premium Blend and she has a one-hour comedy special on LOGO called “You Can Take The Girl Out of Texas” and is a regular on Olivia cruises. Being a mother and grandmother, Vickie says she just happens to be a lesbian. The third Queen to rule this stage is Jess Miller. Her Comedy style is infectious immediately. Jess placed in the top three of The Devil Cup Comedy Festival in NYC in 2016. She performs throughout New England in such venues as Foxwoods, The Comedy Connection and Caroline’s in New York City. Sponsoring the show is Sapphire Books the Gem in Lesbian publishing.
