The Comedians

Headliner: TammyTeaLove
Born in Brooklyn NY; raised in L-A! And Got her Game from the Bay! (Oakland, CA). Her first break was with “Academy Award” and most importantly “NAACP Image award-winning Actress Mo’Nique, at the San Jose Improv. Tammy has been working in comedy since 2007. On most nights, Tammy is found working the stages telling her authentic life stories “her own way.” Tammy’s life stories are relatable, while being unapologetically herself.

Sydney Stigerts
With her blonde pompadour and blunt sarcasm, Sydney Stigerts established herself in the Sacramento, CA comedy scene at a young age. She delights in skewering her millennial peers almost as much as she likes mocking her queer community. On stage, she is high energy, relatable, and would love to tell you a story.

Natalie Diaz
Sonoma County’s Natalie Diaz is making her mark in the Bay Area comedy scene. She won the “So Your Friends Think You’re Funny” competition at Barrel Proof Lounge and recently performed at the Novato Comedy Festival. Raised in rural Northern California, Natalie brings a unique perspective on the absurdities of life to the stage and delights audiences with her infectious energy.

What People are Saying

“The decision to drive from Oakland to Santa Rosa was easy for us, knowing that we would support an event promoting and supporting LGBTQ+ youth. TLC has done a tremendous job at positively impacting our community, and we are truly grateful for all the excellent service you provide.”

“My husband and I love going to comedy shows. We laughed so hard throughout TLC’s Gay Comedy Night, and we both thought one of the comedians was the funniest we’ve ever seen…and we went to Ali Wong at LBC! It was also just great to have gay comics doing gay jokes in a community that is 100% safe and accepting of the LGBTQ+ community. We will be back for the next one for sure!”

“Agencies that focus on serving LGBTQ+ youth are important in every community. Sonoma County is lucky to have TLC and Project Flare doing this work.” 

“Gay Comedy Night was a crazy fun way to support TLC. I can’t wait for the next TLC Comedy Night. We had a blast!”
