In this week’s episode of the Gay City News podcast “Thank You For Coming Out,” creator and host Dubbs Weinblatt (they/ them) welcomes comedian Louie Pearlman (he/him).
Louie Pearlman has been an innovator and maverick of the New York City Comedy and Arts Scene since 2002. His sugar-sweet Sixties Bubblegum Rock musical Joey and Ron, (co-written with Joel Esher) recently made its stage debut at The Player’s Theater in NYC. Louie’s officially-licensed Archie Comics/Riverdale stories “Nice Girls Finish Last,” and “Riverdale’s Worst Nightmare” are currently available on the platform Yarn. Louie also co-hosts and produces the pop culture podcast XOXO Riverdale, and the live streaming radio show/podcast Kick The Jukebox. His pieces have appeared in Gizmodo, Rebeat Magazine and Tough Pigs. For over ten years Louie has been a producer, director, performer and teaching artist with the nationally recognized arts education company Story Pirates, where he’s performed nationally in theaters, music festivals, and schools.
As queer people, we are constantly coming out, and each coming out story is unique in its blend of humor, heartache, worry, and wonder. “Thank You For Coming Out,” inspired by Dubbs’ beloved live comedy show of the same name, pairs them as host with lesbian, gay, trans, bi, non-binary, and more members of the queer community to discuss their coming out stories.
Listen in to our latest incredible journey into the LGBTQ communities’ vulnerable and often hilarious stories of coming out.
