Dawn Whitwell : Special Guest

Recently rated one of America’s Funniest Lesbians by Curve Magazine, Dawn took her “subversive, slacker-next-door wit” on the road, as a featured performer at the LA Comedy Festival. A regular on The Jon Dore Television Show, Dawn has also performed standup throughout the UK, including the Edinburgh Festival. She has also appeared at Gotham and Comic Strip Live in New York, and is the founder of Comedy Girl, an all-girl standup class. Dawn debuted her live show Dirty Rotten Egg to sold out audiences at 2008′s We’re Funny That Way Festival. It has recently been published in the anthology And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents and Our Unexpected Families (Insomniac Press 2009). Most recently Whitwell wrote and performed Proud Larrys, with comedy partner Mae Martin, which was featured as part of Buddies In Bad Times 2010 Pride Program.

“But in this case some of the performers were sensational. Special mention has to go to Dawn Whitwell whose deadpan delivery is spot-on and who took some amazing risks.”
