STAND UP COMEDIAN JULIE GOLDMAN
With Special Guest Riley Silverman
Hosted by Jayce Koester of JPRIDE
Back by popular demand after selling out weeks early in the 2011 Jewish Humor Fest in 2011 – Julie Goldman’s stand-up is delightfully in-your-face, honest and aggressively funny. Headlining throughout the US at clubs, colleges, festivals and events; she’s been described as “unapologetically un-PC ” by Go Magazine, “a hilariously irreverent, butch lesbian” by AfterEllen, and Autostraddle writes, “watching someone be outraged has never been so fun.” Julie has been seen on everything from Bravo’s The People’s Couch, co-hosting the Vanderpump Rules After Show, and on LOGO’s Big Gay Sketch Show. You can enjoy a little Julie with your politics on the hit podcast Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy and make sure to check out her guest-starring role on the season premiere of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm!
Highlighted by VICE for her “wry observational comedy, radical openness, and casually inviting demeanor,” Riley Silverman has been seen on Take My Wife, Comedy Central’s Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, and multiple appearances headlining Portland Queer Comedy Festival and the All Jane Comedy Festival. Her debut comedy album, Intimate Apparel, was a #1 best seller on Amazon. Riley is the head writer for the International Waters comedy panel show podcast, was a body diversity model for the fashion brand ModCloth, and was listed as one of “100 Queer Women We Love” by GO Magazine, and “10 Women Comedians Who Smash the Patriarchy” by The Culture Trip.
