with special guest Nico Santos
Heidi Foss is a three-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-up in Canada. The comedienne has combined her background in theatre with her unusually sardonic perception of everyday life to become a standout presence on the North American comedy scene. Her dry, deadpan delivery has earned her three televised galas as a part of the Montreal International Just For Laughs Festival, as well as numerous appearances on CBC radio, television, CBC’s Halifax Comedy Festival, and on CTV’s Comedy Now! showcase. Foss’ show at Parlor Live Seattle features Nico Santos from Showtime’s Pride Comedy Jam, E! Network’s Fashion Police and as a round table regular on Chelsea Lately. Seattle Pride Comedy Series, Vol. 2 sponsored by The Stranger.
with special guest Erin Foley
Bridget Everett is a singing tour de force known for her funny yet gut-wrenching, outrageous and unpredictable performance work. She’s been dubbed “Wynona Judd meets Melissa Etheridge, via the local bar floozy, on a rocket ship out of Twin Peaks” by Michael Musto from the Village Voice. Everett’s performs monthly with her band, The Tender Moments, and the performances have grown a cult-like following with guest appearances by Patti LuPone, Fred Armisen, Flea, Marc Shaiman, Tonya Pinkins, Jake Shears, and more. Everett’s show at Parlor Live Seattle features Erin Foley from TruTV’s How To Be A Grown Up. She just finished writing for the Ellen DeGeneres’ NBC sitcom One Big Happy, which debuts in the spring of 2015. Seattle Pride Comedy Series, Vol. 3 sponsored by The Stranger.
