Comedian Kristen Becker (End of The Earth Comedy, Dykes of Hazard) comes to Salem for ONE NIGHT ONLY at Opus Underground
Comedian turned producer turned activist Kristen Becker has been described as a “comedic tour de force” and is likely the funniest dyke you’ve never heard of. Born in Buffalo, NY and raised in Louisiana, her show dishes up a bawdy sense of reality… served with a slice of southern charm.
In 2006 she was a founding member of Dykes of Hazard comedy, bringing lesbian comedy into deep south dive bars. As baby dyke Becker matured and the national climate changed, her efforts switched to a more unifying message. In 2015, she launched the Loosen the Bible Belt tour with Pastor Jay Bakker ( son of queer icon Tammy Faye Bakker) a comedy/variety tour intended to bridge the the gap between the religious and queer communities existing south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Yes. She is a non religious dyke comic that tours with the Pastor son of Tammy Faye Bakker. How do you NOTknow her? Oh wait, there’s more.
In 2016, Becker launched Summer of Sass (summerofsass.com) a summer work program that relocates 18-20 yr old LGBTQ humans from oppressive areas to work and live in Provincetown for the summer.
Professional booze-slinger turned giggle maker Meghan E. DePonceau is a stand up comedian hailing from Buffalo, NY, by way of Denver, CO. She combined her various passions of comedy, wearing cute bows in her hair and making hooch by creating and co-hosting Shanty Town, a traveling house party comedy show. She is also the producer/host of a monthly show unCORKED! at Infinite Monkey Theorem, leaving behind her previous careers as a ruthless bookie and pulling Excalibur from the stone reenactor.
