LGBT COMEDY CABARET with POPPY CHAMPLIN
Cost: $20 In Advance; $25 At the Door; Students $15- To buy advance tickets visit: www.gaypriderockland.org

Info: Come laugh out loud with us at our annual Comedy Night- Hosted by Richard Skipper - Featuring Poppy Champlin. . . There's just something about Poppy. She walks on stage looking urban cool and she begins rolling out the jokes, starting slow and sure and moving on to staccato and soon she is hitting on all cylinders, spitting out jokes, quips, songs, impressions, interactions, bird calls and with deep resources to draw from, all of Poppysâ shows can be described as spin art No two alike. Poppy is crackerjack at the craft of Improv. Throw anything at her and watch as she magically turns it into comedic fodder. Her stand-up pedigree is flawless; from her latest SHOWTIME SPECIAL and LOGO SPECIAL, to Oprah Winfrey, and a featured story on Entertainment Tonight, and a performer on The Joan Rivers Show, and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen. She is also a favorite on Atlantis and Olivia cruises.
