My Spirit Animal Is A Butch Lesbian: A Stand Up Comedy Show featuring Sampson

Sampson is a nationally touring, award winning stand up comedian, writer and activist who can make audiences double over in laughter whether he's joking about his wacky and beloved Aunt Jackie, his twink neighbor, being raised in the South, or addressing homophobia, poverty, and religion. For over a decade, he has been a favorite at LGBT pride festivals and mainstream venues alike. His screen appearances include BET, MTV's "Real World", and the Oprah Winfrey Network. He is also the author of two books, "Ebonic Faggotry," and "Taboo Village: A Perspective on Being Gay In Black America" and is at work on his third. He's also released three live stand-up comedy albums, including his latest "That Bitch Better Be Funny: Live at the Howard Theater," where he made history, becoming the first openly gay comedian to headline the famous venue. Other prestigious venues that he has headlined include The White House, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, CA and Harvard University. He's also worked with legendary acts including Whoopi Goldberg, Paul Mooney and Bruce Vilanch.

His comedy offers riveting, refreshing and original takes on religion, sexuality, life and politics--you know, all those things there you weren't supposed to talk about in polite company.

The line-up for this show also includes: Ash Fisher (Gotham Comedy Club) & Karen Ripley (LOGO)
