Get ready for some ridiculously funny, gut-buster, riotous comedy with two of the most acclaimed lesbian stand up comedians in the country, Suzanne Westenhoefer and Dana Goldberg.

Slated to headline "The Dinah Comedy Night" on Saturday, March 31 at 8:00pm at The Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, CA, these two veteran comedians will pull no punches, offering an exceptional night of comedy galore.

In an industry that has for years radically been dominated by males, female comics have been progressively taking over the nation's comedy clubs, bringing their own unique repartee, original voice and individual talent.

Who runs the world?

Westenhoefer and Goldberg have successfully been holding their own in this boy’s club for a long time, and keep pushing the boundaries to carve out a unique voice for women in comedy.

Westenhoefer’s groundbreaking 25-year career of stereotype-shattering and brutally honest comedy includes being one of the first openly lesbian comedians on “Late Night with David Letterman” and the first openly lesbian comedian to have an HBO special. She’s appeared on Bravo, Logo and GSN and has had live performances across the US.

The kid from Amish Country who began her comedy career on a dare is celebrating a quarter century of out, open, no-holds-barred comedy and of course promises to not play it safe at the Dinah.

As seen on TBS, ABC, and Last Comic Standing, veteran comedian Dana Goldberg is a force of nature on stage. With performances at The Comedy Festival produced by TBS and HBO, and the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland; her quick wit and playful stage presence have her earning loyal fans across the country and abroad.

Comedy used to be a boys’ club, but who’s getting the last laugh now?

“At the Dinah, we are committed to openly celebrating our lives and what's a good celebration without the sound of laughter. I couldn't be more pleased to announce this stellar line up of two amazing and groundbreaking comedians who always hit it out of The Dinah park. We moved comedy to Saturday so we are expecting a sold-out show this year,” says Mariah Hanson, founder and producer of The Dinah.

Celebrating its 28th Anniversary, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend, is, once again, upping the volume on your laughter, bringing together two of the hottest lesbian comics on the circuit for an exceptional comedy night that is MUST SEE COMEDY!
