Sound the alarm! Seattle has a new comedy night! The very funny Andy Iwancio—who is releasing a comedy album on Kill Rock Stars in the near future, btw—is starting a new weekly open mic night at Comedy/Bar on Capitol Hill. It's simple, really—Queers to the Front aims to prioritize queer comics of all skill levels and become another reliably great weekly option for comedy fans in Seattle. (See also: the Comedy Nest, which is every Tuesday at the Rendezvous in Belltown). Iwancio told The Stranger, "What we’re trying to do is create a space for queer folks to come grow their comedy in a space that will support radical ideas or stories that would be stifled elsewhere. Also, just to be a radically kind place for queer people to try out comedy for the first time. This whole thing is just me trying to give back to the comedy scene as best I can. It has changed a lot—just like what the word 'queer' means to people. I like the umbrella nature of it though. From gold star lesbians to agender pink furs to a guy who got fingered for the first time last week, I really wanna hear goofy puns from all of them." If you want to perform, signups are open every Saturday from noon-4 pm by emailing queerstothefrontcomedy@gmail.com. The lineup is announced on Sundays via the show's Instagram account.
