    Susanne Westenhoffer talks all things funny (and not so funny) with Nini, Dena, Kristen and Cathy

    Susanne Westenhoffer talks all things funny (and not so funny) with Nini, Dena, Kristen and Cathy

    Today we sit down with Suzanne Westenhoefer and if there is one thing Suzanne does is tell the truth and the truth is that life is funny, especially when it’s fermented in Suzanne’s mind. She also happens to be a very generous treasure trove of life experience. A trailblazer who started doing stand-up in the 1990s, she was the first openly lesbian comedian with an HBO Special and the first openly lesbian comedian on “Late Night with David Letterman.” As only Suzanne can do, she takes us from damsels in distress to Karen Carpenter to how female performers will change the world! So join us as the conversation goes on and off the rails. Suzanne wouldn't have it any other way!
