Swinging Both Ways

The Hella Gay Comedy Show is normally a once-a-month event featuring LGBT comics, but this month the tables are turning and straight comics are performing gay comedy. Plenty of straight actors play gay guys on television and in movies and porn, and now straight comedians are going to play gay comedians on stage, too. The Hella Gay Comedy Show is putting on a one-night "Gay for Pay Comedy Show" featuring local straight comics either acting gay or telling jokes that a gay comic would tell, presumably. It's unclear whether they'll be wearing different kinds of clothes than they'd normally wear, or hats that say "I'm Gay" on them, or what, but part of the fun of going will definitely be finding out. Hosted by local LGBT comedian and actor Charlie Ballard, the lineup features six straight male comedians from the Bay Area.

Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
