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.

Sami Schwaeber
Sami Schwaeber
Sami Schwaeber is a New York City based musical comedian who sings songs (often described as “illustrious”) about her mental health struggles, sexuality and, of course, her ties to judaism (L'chaim!)

Sami has performed at leading NYC comedy venues, including Littlefield, Union Hall, The Duplex, Gotham Comedy Club, The PIT and Don't Tell Mama. You can see her at Just Come! at The Graham in Brooklyn every Tuesday.
Melody Kamali
Melody Kamali
Melody Kamali is a stand-up comedian and writer based in New York City. She started comedy in the venerable Chicago comedy scene where she worked her way up from open mics to clubs to a televised set on Chicago’s own WCIU (Chicago’s One Night Stand-Up). She’s performed in festivals including the All Jane Festival, The Comedy Exposition, and the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival. Melody is a queer, first-generation Iranian woman. Those intersections of her life make for an awareness and appreciation of the absurd, and an almost confessional style of comedy she delights crowds with across New York.
Mindy Raf
Mindy Raf
Mindy Raf is a comedian, actress, writer who has contributed to MTV's GIRL CODE, COLLEGE HUMOR, TNT, VH1, and more. She has performed at the festivals WOMEN IN COMEDY, SKETCHFESTYC, SOLOCOM and BRIDGETOWN COMEDY, where she was named a festival highlight performing as her popular musical comedy alter-ego, Leibya Rogers. Through Leibya Rogers popularity, and as one of the first comedy projects on Kickstarter, she fan-funded and produced a full length vinyl comedy album LEIBYA FAIR LIVE. Mindy's debut young adult novel THE SYMPTOMS OF MY INSANITY (DIAL/Penguin) is out now.
