Ophira Eisenberg is probably most famous for hosting Ask Me Another, a trivia and puzzle show on National Public Radio. But the Calgary native once had her own humor-filled program on CTV Television Network and she has made countless appearances on Comedy Central, VH-1, E! Channel, the Oxygen Network and the Discovery Channel. On January 10, Eisenberg will headline LGBT Laughfest 2013, also known as Queens of Queens, at the Laughing Devil, NYC’s only outerborough comedy club. She will be followed by a veritable Who’s Who of LGBT funnypeople, including Adam Sank (NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Sirius-XM’s OutQ), MAC Award-winner Danny Cohen (Comedy Central’s Premium Blend) and Cara Kilduff (Here-TV’s Hot Gay Comics and co-host of Queens Public Television’s Talking About). Biggest Loser champ Poppi Kramer, the warm-up comic for the Bill Cunningham Show, will be the mistress of ceremonies.
The Big Thing –The Laughing Devil Comedy Club (GMAP) hosts a night of laughs with the excitement of watching the next Big Thing. Funny people from around the Tri-State Area (and beyond) flock to the only comedy club in the outer boroughs on Wednesdays to impress the audience and club bookers. Those who kill on Big Thing night become club regulars. Expect special guests such as Adam Sank and Joyelle Johnson.
