What words best describe Comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer? How about bold, bawdy, and just plain hilarious? Not afraid to ask tough questions that uncover the laughs underneath, Suzanne’s made a career out of telling the truth. And the truth is, life is funny. Suzanne Westenhoefer is the reigning shtick chick worth noting. Her individual style and unique sense of self set the stage for all walks of life – young, old, gay, straight, lesbian, bi, and every descriptor imaginable in between.
It all started when Suzanne Westenhoefer was dared to enter a comedy contest at a cabaret, and though she had never done stand-up before, she won. She quickly became popular as “the gay girl in straight clubs” performing stand-up between acting assignments.
While performing in a comedy club in 1991, Suzanne was approached by the Sally Jesse Raphael talk show asking her to be on the episode “Lesbians Who Don’t Look Like Lesbians.” Westenhoefer appeared and came out on national television (thus prompting her mother to remarry and get rid of that last name!) The unique Westenhoefer brand of humor has been in wide demand ever since. Suzanne Westenhoefer has appeared on Comedy Central, and such shows as Evening at the Improv, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, and Politically Incorrect.
After playing at theatres, clubs, and colleges internationally, Suzanne starred in her own HBO comedy special, which was nominated for a Cable ACE award. Suzanne does over 100 live comedy dates a year, in addition to her film and television work. While she often performs in large theatres, she loves returning to the comedy clubs where she got her start.
Guaranteed Fresh, her third comedy cd is a solid offering that covers the usual ground of relationships but also the fascination some gay women have with home renovation. Nothing In My Closet But Clothes, her debut comedy cd is a best-seller and won the prestigious Gay and Lesbian American Music Award (GLAMA) for Best Comedy CD. She repeated this feat with her next comedy cd I’m Not Cindy Brady which also won the GLAMA in April of 2000.
Suzanne Westenhoefer plays to sell-out crowds all over North America. She has hosted, performed. And killed at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Suzanne recently headlined with Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) at the famous Improv Club in Hollywood.
Suzanne is the girl next door and the brazen hussy. A quick-witted personality so her material keeps changing--sometimes on the spot. She loves her audience even as she ribs them. Suzanne makes her home in Los Angeles, and she is currently developing her new special for HBO entitled: TOUR DE FEMME!
