Club Oberon 2 Arrow St, Cambridge
7:30pm doors, 8:00pm show
Leighsa Burgin, in collaboration with ATKM Productions, brings veteran of the international comedy scene, Mimi Gonzalez (Ellen, LOGO’s One Night Stand Up) and hometown hero, Julee Antonellis (AfterEllen.com’s “50 Hot Comedians”, Women in Comedy Festival) together for you, for one night only, in a hysterical evening of multiple personality comedy. Their explosive and unique styles blend together expertly in a comedic tour de force not to be missed!
“Gonzalez is a strong, high-spirited comic.
One of ten stand-out stand ups in New York City.” —Backstage Magazine NY
“Antonellis brought a huge energy to the stage. Her physical comedy is hilarious…easily places Antonellis among the best in Boston.” —Bay Windows
Wash those Sunday night blues away with tears of laughter- you can always just DVR Downton Abbey and The Walking Dead. Laugh with us now, cry later.
Mimi Gonzalez is a writer, a Michigan-raised Latina and a 20 year veteran of the professional comedy scene. She’s a road-tested, high-octane comedian who takes the audience on a wild ride from the profound to the profane. Bawdy and political, her ferocious idealism of inclusion has been embraced by colleges, Prides, comedy clubs, resorts, festivals, cruises and even battlefields. Her television appearances include Ellen, LOGO’s One Night Stand Up, Que Loco, Funny is Funny, Latino Laugh Festival and The Today Show.
There’s actually nowhere she won’t go to make you laugh, including Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the US military. Her 2014 schedule is already jam-packed, stopping over in Boston for this very special appearance. Gonzalez calls her life of constant travel “Wonder Lust” because of the wealth of reasons there are to celebrate… especially stories of her fellow citizens. It’s been said “she never met a stranger” and always finds a point on the human spectrum on which to alight. Just let her hold the gun, she’s from Detroit and is a pretty good shot.

Boston’s hometown favorite prodigal lesbian comes home for a one night only stand up event! You may know Julie Goldman from LOGO’s BIG GAY SKETCH SHOW, or from one of her three TV comedy specials which viewers have seen on LOGO, Showtime and Comedy Central. She has appeared on Fox’s Bones, RuPaul’s Drag U and Happy Endings. Goldman currently can be seen on Bravo’s new show, The People’s Couch, with her creative partner, Brandy Howard. You can also listen to Julie on “Gay Pimpin with Jonny McGovern” podcast and her albums “The Awkward Studio Sessions” and “Co Dependent, Obsessive, Love, aint so bad, so leave the window open.” All available on Itunes.
Opening the show is Boston’s own sweetheart Julee Antonellis, named of one 50 Hot Comedians by AfterEllen.com. Her One Night Stand Up Debut had you asking for more! We aim to please- Julee is adapting over 25 years of theater experience and character-based storytelling to the stand-up scene. She wrote, produced and starred in her acclaimed one-woman show, (N)everclear. From Los Angeles to London she’s been sharing the stage with nationally award winning, comedic, gender-bending performance troupe All The Kings Men.
Advanced tix recommended- our last show with Julie did sell out. VIP ticket ($25) includes reserved preferred seating and free entry to the afterparty at the Milky Way (save $7!). General admission ($20 advanced/$25 night of) seating is first come first serve. http://juliegoldmanshow.brownpapertickets.com/
AfterEllen.com named Julee in their
50 Hot Women in Comedy list!
“A note on the criteria for inclusion: Hot, wildly hilarious. And hot. Here is our list of 50 Hot Women in Comedy.”
Julee Antonellis and Petey Gibson
These ladies’ brand of gender-bending comedy is outrageous, and their charm and unmatched chemistry definitely doesn’t hurt. Their stand-up, sketch and musical comedy show, The Gibson/Antonellis Comedy Hour, recently made it to the Women In Comedy Festival in Boston.
