Diversionary Theatre says
Join us on Tuesday, January 19th at 7 pm for The Big Gay Improv Show at Diversionary Theater! A team of San Diego’s finest improvisers present a montage of hilarious scenes that are totally made up on the spot and inspired by the real life stories of two guest monologists from the LGBT community. Our guest monologists for this show are Melanie Peters Paisley and Jeremy Latham Davies. Featured improvisers are Peggy Walkush, Laurel Posakony, Stephen Bowers, Jill Tsai, Jesse Suphan and Mike Schramm. This show is a fundraiser for Diversionary Theater.

Melanie Peters Paisley is the founder and Creative Director for Melanie Peters Productions, where she has been able to merge her love of producing music and video with her talent for helping others into a successful marketing business. Mel played music professionally from the mid-90s until 2009, making records, touring the U.S and abroad and even producing a TV show. She grew up in Santa Barbara, describing herself as a “lower middle class kid living in a ritzy town with butterfly barrettes in my frizzy hair and 5’11” in the 6th grade.” She came out as a lesbian to her mom when she was 17 then went back in the closet in the 80s for a bit due to pressures of the male-dominated music business. She is half of the music comedy duo Nick & Mel and Vice President of the National Organization for Women in San Diego. She and her wife Jill are newlyweds who met on Facebook. They have two dogs and a cat who thinks he is a dog.

Jeremy Latham Davies hails from the Bay Area where he lived in the same house from birth until moving to San Diego at age 20. Jeremy tried the usual "boy" things when he was younger (sports, boy scouts, etc.) but quickly abandoned those activities to pursue a life onstage. His mother introduced him to the golden-age of movie musicals at a very early age, which served as inspiration. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Performance in 2013. Unfortunately, Jeremy's parents are quite conservative, so he was raised with messages of the evils of gay people. He spent most of his pubescent years trying to "make himself straight" until his senior year of high school when he finally came out. He works professionally as a drag queen for the Dreamgirls Revue at Urban MO's Bar & Grill and elsewhere and is the current reigning Ms. Tantrums & Tiaras. He and his boyfriend Jordan have been together almost three years and they have two fur babies.
