Back by popular demand Marga and The Bad Boys is the funniest, queerest, dirtiest, and most controversial stand-up comedy show ever. Dyke of darkness Marga Gomez (LOGO’s One Night Stand Up) and her co-headlining sarcastic gay hunk Thai Rivera (Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham) are joined by naughty jokers Casey Ley and Ricky Luna in NQAF’s hilarious homo hit.

This is Marga Gomez’s fourth turn as uproarious dyke diva and procurer of sensational Gay guy comics. She will be co-headlining with Thai Rivera, one of the most original, hard working and fearless comics in the business. Thai’s openly gay act has been winning audiences all over the country from LA’s Improv and Laugh Factory to redneck bars in the heartland to several television comedy specials.  This is not a show for the politically sensitive. Instead of a take no prisoners approach these comics will take prisoners, date them, and leave them for married politicians.

Biographies


Marga Gomez

Marga Gomez is based in San Francisco but tours nationally as one of the first openly gay comedians in America. In 2009 she was featured on the LOGO network’s ‘One Night Stand-Up.’  She has also appeared on HBO's Comic Relief, Showtime's Latino Laugh Festival, Comedy Central's Out There and the PBS series In the Life. Marga was named “Best Comedian 2009” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and is the recipient of a 2004 GLAAD Media Award. New York’s GO Magazine named Marga “100 Women We Love 2009” 


Thai Rivera

“In L.A. the legend of Thai Rivera grows. Thai’s fans are abuzz.”  Spark Magazine

Thai can be seen on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and LOGO network’s “One Night Stand Up.” Thai was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in the smaller, more rural town of Casa Grande, Arizona. When he was 19, he moved to Las Vegas where he lived the true Las Vegas party lifestyle. Tired of the fast pace of Vegas, he moved back to Phoenix and settled into a life of boring office work. He quickly tired of the life as a cubicle dweller, found his way to the local comedy stage and was never bored again. After becoming a finalist in a local comedy contest, he knew it was time to move to a city where he could hone his act. He quickly moved to L.A. where he has become a favorite with audiences, bookers, and his fellow comics. Thai is a Laugh Factory regular. Look for him in the upcoming movie Dirty Jokes as well as comedy venues and college campuses all over the country. Thai Rivera’s blend of sarcasm, edge, and charm is the can’t-miss recipe for a night full of laughter

ALSO APPEARING: Queer comic Casey Ley who is the host of Pirate Cat radio’s “The Morning Show” on  87.9 FM in the Bay Area and Los Angeles and Ricky Luna, a new gay comic on the scene starting to get noticed in local San Francisco comedy clubs for his wild ways.
