Oh, To Be Young & Gay & Witty
Julie & Jonny at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center promises to be the "gayest comedy of all time." Just how gay -- and damn funny -- are they? Both Julie Goldman and Jonny McGovern, LGBT-themed stand-up comics and actors, were stars of Logo network's much-missed The Big Gay Sketch Show. Both are singers; Goldman does the folky guitar stuff, and the baritone McGovern has released three albums, which include the songs "Dickmatized," "I Saw Your Dick on Craigslist" and the fag-hag cautionary tale "Don't Fall in Love With a Homo." ("Now, I know he does your hair/Takes you shopping everywhere/But he ain't gonna touch you down there.") Goldman also founded the bicoastal, all-female club night Offensive Women and writes for Joan Rivers on E!'s Fashion Police. And McGovern hosts the wildly popular Gay Pimpin' podcast, featuring frequent guest Goldman. Two gays going wild, and they're coming for your straight souls. Resistance is fruit-ile. Renberg Theater, 1125 N. McCadden Place, Hlywd.; Fri., Jan. 19, 8 p.m.; $20. (323) 860-8300, lagaycenter.org.
Sat., Jan. 19, 8 p.m., 2013
