LA Conference to Feature "The Gay Mafia"
The Gay Mafia, an LA-based improvisational/comedy group, will provide the Saturday evening entertainment during the 2008 Affirmation Conference.
Since 2002, The Gay Mafia has given over 230 performances and performed sketch and improv comedy in venues across the country, including the LA Convention Center, Highways Performance Space, the Renberg Theater, the Tamarind Theater, the Ice House, and the Second City Theater.
The Mafia defied censorship at Club 66 by performing a banned sketch to huge audience support. They have performed private gigs for gay organizations such as Great Outdoors Los Angeles, Women On A Roll, Transgender Unity, and Out at Warner Brothers.
They have appeared on Harrison on the Edge, IMRU, the John McMullen and the Frank DeCaro national radio talk shows (on Sirius Satellite Radio), QTV's Morning Brunch Show, and Margaret Cho's Sensuous Woman Show.
The Gay Mafia appeared frequently at the Grounds in West Hollywood. Margaret Cho and many other stand-up comics performed with them. Kurt Hall and Diana Yanez of The Gay Mafia toured with Margaret Cho, performing as Lisp and Havana, Margaret's opening act.
