JULIE GOLDMAN LAUNCHES HER COMIC ASSAULT ON THE PACIFIC NWDate: Thursday, August 14 2008Topic: Theatre Off Jackson
New York comic dervish Julie Goldman brings her latest solo show to Seattle for an exclusive four-night engagement, September 11-14 at the Theatre Off-Jackson.Described as a "kick ass comic" (New York Press) and "charmingly deviant" (Village Voice), Goldman is outrageous, outspoken, fearless, righteous, uncensored, and openly LEZ (lesbian).Her romping pop style and perfect timing allow her to wrest the uproarious from the serious and send her audiences careening toward sidesplitting bliss.
Goldman is a cast member of the "Big Gay Sketch Show" and the star of the "Julie Goldman Celesbian Interviews" on LOGO.She has also been featured on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and performs regularly with "The Jap Show: Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad."Julie is a 2007 MAC Award winner (Manhattan Association of Clubs and Colleges), and she most recently received the 2008 NewNowNext: Brink of Fame Comic Award in NYC.
Goldman is also the host and creator of Offensive Women, a live monthly comedy show in New York and Los Angeles that features both up-and-coming and established women comics performing fearless, uncensored comedy.Offensive Women is also launching a series of web videos showcasing the best female comedians around."We're the next generation of feminist loudmouths," says Goldman, "and we're gonna say whatever we damn well please.Audiences won't know what hit them."
Goldman co-starred in "Big Dreams In Little Hope" and has a role in "Out At The Wedding," which is currently playing at film festivals around the country.
"Julie Goldman deals with the art of stand-up like she's got nothing to lose.Goldman is a crackerjack stand-up comic whose romping pop style and perfect timing allow her to wrest the uproarious from the serious and send her audience careening toward sidesplitting bliss.Call it feminist or lesbian humor if you want, but the great thing about Goldman is she transcends all those terms and shows us that we're all in this together.She is very now and an absolute must see" -- NY Press

Julie Goldman: Stand-up's warrior princess
It's a little intimidating to approach Julie Goldman after leafing through clips of her performance history.This is a comedian who knows how to unleash her inner Lesbionic Woman, Seeker of Justice or charge on stage as a Warrior Princess, complete with whip and breast plates.
Her repertoire includes a video clip with a public service announcement for world peace that suggests a new holiday called "Sit Down and Shut the Fuck Up Day."Reviewers pepper their praise with words like "raunchy" and "kick-ass."One critic even wrote that she has "the energy of a bolt of lightning: her madness might hit you or just scare you."
"I feel that I'm very different off stage than I am on," Goldman says, shrugging off the ‘Warrior Princess' moniker she adopted for her second one-woman show."Though that person on stage is absolutely 100 percent me, it's the me that exists in my head.The things I wish I could say out loud, or the way I wish I could be.The thoughts and feelings are all mine, though when I'm offstage or living my daily life, I'm not as high, high energy or loud, or obnoxious, or daring.Onstage I feel fearless, offstage not so much.
"I'm also quite shy and don't necessarily like a lot of attention drawn towards me, unless I'm onstage, and then of course, who else is there?"
Although it might seem as if Goldman performs without boundaries – a "no prudes allowed" sign might be fitting outside her venues – she does have her limits.
"I would probably never make jokes about cancer or killing kittens for fun," she says."I saw this fake Web site on the internet called ‘Bonsai Kitten,' and at first I thought it was real, and I just about bought a gun to kill the guy who was running it, and then I found out it was fake, a joke.What's funny about taking the organs out of kittens and putting them in jars?I just don't see it."
There are no limitations when it comes to her own community though.Goldman's biggest complaint about today's lesbians is that they're too politically correct for their own good.
Goldman started writing material and practicing stand-up at the tender age of 14.While attending a Jewish youth group convention, she got hooked on the comedians who performed.She approached them for advice, and they suggested she stop by the Comedy Connection in her native Boston.After she went once, she just kept returning.
Her resume now includes a wide spectrum of performances ranging from improv to film and video work to her three, one-woman shows: "The Lesbionic Woman ... Seeker of Justice" (1997), "Warrior Princess" (1998), and Julie Goldman Works It Out (1999-2001).In the past, Goldman has created some colorful alter-egos to share her stage, such as horny ladies' man Vito Danstancampiano and folk-rock performer Indigo Etheridge (singer of "Monogamous Slut").
"I've always incorporated characters, but in doing stand-up now, I'm mostly just me, with commentary about characters or different people I'm affected by, incorporating their gestures, voices, physical attributes, and then doing one big musical number as a character at the end," says Goldman, who co-founded the New York City sketch comedy group, Scary Little Town, and is a featured member of the monthly series, Scapegoat Productions Presents.
Comedy was her first love, but music has always had a strong presence as well.Recently, Goldman hosted the American premiere of "Sing-A-Long Sound of Music" at the Big Apple's famous Ziegfeld Theatre.
"Secretly, though performing and comedy was always in my mind, I really just wanted to be a rock star," she confesses."I would say they both play important roles in my life.I love them both.I'm a music nut.I love music.But I think comedy in all of its spectrums is a truer outlet for me.But to have the music involved at this point is so wonderful, and I couldn't do things without it now."
Goldman may have carved a niche for herself in the comedy scene, but she's the first to admit that it wasn't easy.Stand-up is a notoriously male-dominated medium that she likens to a fraternity: "Imagine a lesbian walking into a frat house and being like, ‘Hey guys ... wanna hang?'
"It takes a lot of nicey-nicey to make it happen," says Goldman, who cites Jennifer Saunders, Tracey Ullman, Robin Williams, and Mel Brooks as career inspirations.
Miami Light Project's ninth annual gay and lesbian comedy series, "Come Out Laughing," concludes with a double bill featuring stand-up artists Georgia Ragsdale and Julie Goldman.
