Marga Gomez In Pound says
GLAAD award winning solo performer Marga Gomez brings her slightly unplugged sex fueled comedy to Theatre Off Jackson for one night only.

In the comedy POUND, Marga Gomez plays a desperate version of herself as well as her gay nephew Mikey, and a delicious assortment of cinema’s most obscure and toxic lesbian characters. A critically acclaimed audience favorite at New York’s 2015 Hot Festival, POUND satirizes the gloomy portrayal of lesbian lust in film history and the sexual side effects Gomez suffered from watching these movies. Fighting to get her groove back, Gomez fumbles a ladies’ room tryst and teleports to a steamy lesbian data cloud where extortionists, showgirls, murderers and school teachers hook up in spectacularly meta ways.

Event is intended for audiences over the age of 18.

Marga Gomez is the writer/ performer of eleven solo plays that have been performed nationally and internationally. Her stage work earned her a GLAAD Media Award, Theater LA’s Ovation Award and a nomination for New York’s Drama Desk Award. Gomez is also one of the nation’s first openly gay stand-up comedians with television appearances on HBO , Showtime and LOGO. She is a long time favorite comedian on Olivia Cruises along with Lisa Koch and other mermaids and sailor girls.
