Marga Gomez comes out swinging in her comedy album Hung Like a Fly, and doesn’t stop until everyone is cramped with laughter. Gomez is part Puerto Rican, part Cuban, fully out as a lesbian, and fully committed to confronting all kinds of social niceties. With a high-energy delivery Gomez pokes fun at Spanish-language television, the lack of diversity in Utah, camping, and the gay and straight community alike. Gomez balances her social criticism well with comedy and has produced a raunchy and entertaining album that is deserving multiple listens.

"Deliciously cheeky...a comic marksman." (The New York Times)
"She's amazing...a lesbian Lenny Bruce." (Robin Williams)
Okay, so you shouldn't play this around small children (you'll have a lot of explaining to do), but I Gomez cracked me up. Yeah, there is a lot of lesbian related material, but not all. There is solid talent behind the material and her delivery. Recording quality is not great, but I've found myself keeping this one on the iPod for an occasional laugh.

Lots of Rah-rah pro-lesbian ranting, more like feminist rally than a comedy routine. Not a lot of laughs for this listener anyway.
