“Southern California native Tammy Jo Dearen has a full calendar. In addition to taking part in regular stand-up shows at the Improv in Hollywood and across town, the comedian who always knew she wanted to be a performer also produces a comedy double-header every month at El Cid in Silver Lake and has a new radio show in the works. The comedian who regularly performs an "ode" to sign language instructors, dishes on her hair and often says things she wishes she hadn't, is SheWired's October funny lady of the month.”

“This is where GAY salutes those who have the courage to take the stage and make us all laugh. The comedians spotlighted here have become friends of GAY, signing on to support us here before we could even show them the web site. Just click on the photo icons below to learn about each of our featured comedians, watch a video clip of one of their performances, and see where to find them online. As always, be sure to tell our comic friends that you learned about them here at GAY. ”

“Her comedy acts generate interesting anecdotes in the lesbian community, but don’t expect her to segregate folks, she understands you straight kids too. Tammy’s humor is unique in a way that makes you appreciate the difficulty of sign language and the awkward days when you were forced to participate in gym class. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, referring to it in one word “SuburbiaHell… it’s a compound [word]” she reassures. Does that give her a leg up on the competition in the eyes of other comedians out here? Doubt it, she’s worked hard to get where she’s at.”

“For a minimum donation of $25, attendees at the fundraiser at Azul will be entitled to an open bar and hors d'oeuvres from 6:00 to 8:00PM, followed by an evening of entertainment from 8:00 to 9:30PM. Los Angeles comedian Tammy Jo Dearen, who performs at The World Famous Comedy Store, the Hollywood Improv and Laugh Factory, will host the event which features singer Charles Herrera, comedian Shann Carr, who recently returned to Palm Springs from her national tour, singer Lori Donato, and Azul’s own DJ Robb Roberts. That evening the exterior of Azul will be illuminated in pink light, thanks to the support of Joe Antillon of XIL Sound.”

“Tammy Jo Dearen is an all that and then some comedian performing all around LA... and then some-some. Not just any comedian, Dearen is a triple "F" threat - fiery, fresh and...wait for it...frisky. Dearen can electrify audiences with her ra-ra-ra-rapid fire wit and oh so easy charm. The funny girl took time to chat with the Examiner about daily life as a comedian, advice to wannabe comedians and what's it like being Little Miss Hollywood. ”
