Dykes of Hazard Variety Show

Comedian Kristen Becker, in addition to “Doin’ Time” at the weekly Tuesday night comedy series at Nietzsche’s, for the past three years has been driving her Dykes of Hazard (DOH) comedy tour all over the country gathering audiences from Buffalo to Berkeley and everywhere in between. From big theaters to small bars, the Dykes of Hazard can entertain in any type of venue, in nearly any part of the country (well…within reason). Starting in 2010 Becker will reunite with former cohorts Ava La Fey, Jenny Wilson, and Karine Amato in a monthly variety show which is at once a blend of sketch comedy, standup, burlesque, and social satire. From local gossip to international headlines and political issues, the DOH is an intelligent mockery that skewers social taboos in a blend of humor and sexuality. It’s a provocative show, but hilarious and should become a quick hit. Each month will feature a musical guest, and this week brings local band the Manipulators.
