Make Us Laugh, Funny Girl!
Stephanie Miller's Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour hits town this week with comrades in lefty funniness Hal Sparks and John Fugelsang.
LA WEEKLY: Do conservatives come to these Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour shows?
STEPHANIE MILLER: Yes! We get reports every show of reluctant significant others being dragged there. In every case, that we know of, the right wing other loved it! Lots of reports of asses being laughed off. No independent confirmation of said asses.
Of the original slate of 2012 GOP candidates, who would you like to see on the ballot?
Michelle Bachman and her big gay husband, Marcus.
Who's the sexiest conservative of all time?
Reagan. I voted for him when i was a dumb USC kid. I also thought I was straight then. Discuss amongst yourselves.
Have you ever have a conservative comic on the bill? Would you?
No and no. By definition, they punch down, we punch up.
What worries you most about the Democratic party?
That i have more balls, at times, than they do.
Are you rich? Do you think you pay enough in taxes?
Yes, because of "Sexy Liberal," I am rich, and I mostly love how that makes right wing heads explode, liberals succeeding at capitalism. And no, I think I should pay more in taxes, and I would be happy to, but that's why we give money to different sexy liberal causes in every city we go to, including Trevor Project here in L.A., to try to save more gay kids' lives.
As a liberal, a commentator and a comic, when, for example, Rush Limbaugh makes his famous "slut" comment, is there a part of you that's happy to have easy fodder to make fun of conservatives?
Yes, I think all women love getting sex advice from a man who hasn't seen his own penis in years. Pantages Theatre, 6233 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd.; Sat, July 28, 8 p..; $45-$75 ticketmaster.com – Libby Molyneaux
