Sideshow’s Freak Flag is One Week Away

… and we’ve added another reader! Kate McCabe is touring with the Famous Lesbian Comedy Roadshow and squeezed us in. Really looking forward to her work.

Kate McCabe has been from all of the following places at one point or another: Erie, PA,—New York, NY—Los Angeles, CA—Baltimore, MD—Rochester, NY—Oban, Scotland—and most recently Manchester, England. A graduate from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she studied at the Stella Adler Studio and suffered the indignity and emotional pain of being constantly belittled and berated by crotchety old acting teachers–mostly to legitimize a career in comedy. Turns out that being ashed on by Virginia Slims and wearing Capezio character heels is good for the soul. She has subsequently performed long-form improv with The Hester Prynns, written sketch for The Ralph Show and Free Range, and performed stand-up in The States and The UK. She loves comic books, travelling, snacking, karate-chopping things, and napping. Proudest moments include offering Gina Gershon a smoked-mozzarella pizza whilst working as a cater-waiter and the one time Kate Clinton gave her a hug.

Also, drumroll please: Sideshow now has its own domain! www.queerliterarycarnival.com is up and running. We don’t have an official Sideshow mailing list, join either Cheryl’s or mine to get monthly reminders, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

It’s going to be a fantastic lineup—See you there!
