About Columbus Gay Pride Comedy Showcase
Kick off Gay Pride early with the 2nd Annual Gay Pride Comedy Showcase! This year, we are donating a portion of the proceeds to Stonewall Builds! Brought to you by Wonder Doug, the Columbus Funny Bone, and the Garden on High, the Gay Pride Comedy Showcase features a cast of queer entertainers, and is the perfect comedy night for both LGBTQ and Allies.
Hosted by Bianca Moore, the show will feature Pat Deering, Angie Healey, Christine Horvath, and your Co-Headliners Wonder Doug and Brooke Cartus.
