Outsources: Taking Control of the Punchline

Posted: August 29, 2016 at 4:00 pm by , in Breaking News, Featured, Outsources

Join Angela Palermo for a conversation with trans woman comedian Jordan Wieleba. Jordan has been active in the Denver area comedy scene for the last several years.  She has performed locally at such venues as Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret and across the nation at comedy clubs and college campuses.

She serves up her comedy from her own unapologetic transgender perspective, a space where trans people transition from being the butt of the joke to being comedic creators in our own right.  We talk about the intersection of comedy and trans folks, the “therapeutic” benefits of stand up, the frightening possibilities of a Trump presidency and where she hopes to take her comedy career in the future.  For more information, please visit Jordan’s website at www.comedianjordan.com.
