Erin Foley presents Gays R Us, featuring the best gay, gay friendly, questioning, curious, funniest comics available that night. Now in it's third year at the Improv, Gays R Us continues to pack the house on the first Wednesday of each month.

Erin Foley:

Erin Foley, a recent transplant to Los Angeles, spent years in New York City’s comedy clubs mastering the art of stand-up comedy while successfully pursuing her acting career. In New York and Los Angeles, Erin can be regularly seen at Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline's on Broadway, The Improv, The Laugh Factory and Stand Up New York. She has performed at the Just for Laughs/TBS Comedy Festival in Chicago and the Marshall’s Women in Comedy Festival. Foley has had the honor of being selected to perform at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival three times. Not only has Erin had a successful career in comedy, but she also succeeds on the small screen with several national television commercial campaigns.

At the present time, Erin is filming a comedy pilot for E! Entertainment. She recently shot her own half hour comedy special for Comedy Central and has taped Chelsea Lately and The Kilborn File on FOX. Simultaneously, Erin has enjoyed success in the field of acting. She can be seen in the short films “Cried Suicide” and “Squeezplay”, as well as a pilot for MTV called, “This is Ray.” Her favorite role to date was in Cameron Crowe’s film “Almost Famous”. Erin played the role of Allison, the fact checker. Erin has branded a unique position for herself in the industry as not only a gifted stand-up but a talented actress. Her versatility makes her one of the most sought- after women working the comedy scene today.

Gloria Bigelow:

 In five short years as a comedian, Gloria Bigelow has filmed three comedy specials for television.

Bitten by the comedy bug after moving to New York, Glo, as she is called, seamlessly slipped into the world of comedy. She is seen at all of the top comedy clubs including The Improv, New York Comedy Club, Stand-Up New York, Comix, The Broadway Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory and Gotham Comedy Club. Picked up from a performance at the Improv, Gloria was the featured MC of the New York Comedy Expo opening for the finalist of the National Laugh Across America Competition. Glo has performed in numerous festivals including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival,  Outlaugh Comedy Festival, Michigan Gay and Lesbian Comedyfest and the New York Underground Comedy Festival.

Gloria was born in Pittsburgh, PA and was raised in a “shockingly white” suburb where she skied, played tennis, and went to the tanning salon. At the age of 15, she moved to South Carolina, learned that she was black and cut out the trips to Golden Tan. She attended Spelman College — because her parents didn’t think that she was quite black enough. While at Spelman she majored in Drama — and minored in more drama. Her MFA in acting is from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She now lives in Los Angeles, CA with her dog Niles and her cat Misu.
