Gay, Black and Kind of Funny

Christmas In Bakersfield, playing at Comedy Sportz as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, will disappoint if you’re looking for the big gift but it’s a perfect stocking stuffer. Les Kurkendaal’s one-man show details the true story of meeting his boyfriend’s conservative white parents who know their son is gay but don’t know his boyfriend is African American. Kurkendaal flubs a few lines but gets lots of laughs and knowing nods, especially when acting out the family’s unbelievably clueless questions and comments about tap dancing, watermelon and barbecue.
