to Ron Gallman
Gomez keeps a busy schedule doing stand-up comedy and theater. She recently performed her one-woman show Los
Big Names at New York's 47th Street Theater, among other venues. Her previous
six solo shows have been produced in New York at The Public Theater,
The Whitney Museum, Performance Space 122, La Mama Theater, and beyond
New York at The Kennedy Center, The Museum of Contemporary Arts Massachusetts,
The Mark Taper Forum (Los Angeles), Theater Rhinoceros (San Francisco),
and internationally. She's the recipient of the 2004 GLAAD Award
for Off-Off Broadway theater, and the 1994 Theatre LA's Ovation Award.
She is the subject of the 2003 documentary Laughing
writing has been widely published, and her comedy CD Hung
Like a Fly (strongly recommended) is available on Uproar
Records. Stage credits include Off- Broadway and San Francisco productions
Vagina Monologues, and onscreen roles include Batman
Forever (1995) and Sphere (1998),
an experience she will not stop making fun of.
I first met Marga as a crazed fan and have gradually
insinuated myself into her glamorous Sapphic life. I interviewed her
at her Brooklyn home in 2005 with her dog Tabasco sitting quietly in
her lap the whole time. More about Marga at margagomez.com.
