What’s one thing that can bring together LGBTQ and straight audiences? Come Out Laughing hopes that comedy and sharing a drink can bridge any divide. Making a stop on its national tour, Come Out Laughing features lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and straight comics from across the country who have appeared on Showtime, HBO and Comedy Central. The Spokane stop features Come Out Laughing creators Erin Foley, host of the Sports Without Balls podcast, and Jason Dudley, from NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and will be emceed by Spokane’s own Jared Munson. This gay-friendly show promises to make you burst out laughing, or at least chuckle a bit. Head downtown to share some laughs and see how life’s funny no matter who you are.
