The Lesbian Agenda
The Lesbian Agenda
Did you hear that lesbians are taking over the world? Well, when they’re not getting killed off on TV shows or busy playing with their hairless felines!

Sophie Santos brings you her Agenda™ with this banging variety show featuring the best lez, bi and queer comedians* of all time. Buckle up those Birkenstocks ladies... she's got big plans.

*lineup may include straights if they are very, very funny and/or were raised by two moms.

Jess Salomon
Jess Salomon

Since making the move, Jess was selected to be a 2017 StandUP NBC finalist and had her stand up featured on SiriusXM’s Raw Dog. She’s done lots of cool festivals in America like the Laughing Skull Festival, San Francisco Sketch Fest and the Boston Comedy Festival.

In Canada she’s been in Just for Laugh’s OFF JFL, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and on CBC’s “The Debaters”. Her stand up has aired on CBC Television and can be heard on SiriusXM’s “Canada Laughs” and CBC’s “LOL”.

Fun fact: before comedy Jess used to be a U.N. war crimes lawyer. The jury is still out on whether this was a good move
