Dana Friedman is, in all likelihood, New York’s first Orthodox Jewish, transsexual comic. Her performances address a wide variety of topics, including many outside the very unusual norms of standup comedy.
She is the producer of Queernucopia An Evening of LGBT and Allied Comedy Goddesses and Heathens , Right Down The Middle (East), (no missionaries, just funny positions), which brings together Muslim, Jewish, Israeli, Arab, and Palestinian standup comics, LOL Nidrei (Unforgivably Naughty Jewish Comedy) which was featured in The Forward, and Orthomocks Jews, A Pre-Purim Standup Romp.
Dana was selected for She-Devil Comedy Festival’s “Best Of The Fest”. She has appeared with or opened for Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Yanis Pappas, Christian Finnegan, Julia Scotti, Tim Dillon, and other major headliners at clubs and theaters all over North America.
