Touring the Pacific Northwest stand-up circuit, Suzanne Westenhoefer is relaxed and upfront, wryly suggesting to her audience that there aren’t many better places for a lesbian comedian than Portland and Seattle. Brimming with warmth and humility, Westenhoefer has made an art of abstracting the hilarious from the mundane. Certainly this stand-up stand-out doesn’t shy away from more ribald subject matter, nor is she afraid to take a hard line as she candidly discusses life in showbiz as an out entertainer. At the same time, however, Westenhoefer is possessed of an uncanny ability to keep things honest, intimate, and uplifting: Even as she tackles problems of discrimination and inequality, this endearing entertainer is no stranger to the healing power of humor.

"A center-stage diva who bursts out of her closet with little explosions of outspoken bemusement that could make even Bette Midler blush." (New York Daily News)
Comedy I can relate to.
I have seen her in person several times and I have most of her albums. This is one of the best! She is very funny and right on the money when it comes to the little things like cats and square dancing...
