Natasha Leggero is one of judges on NBC's Last Comic Standing. See her this weekend at the Drafthouse LIVE! Natasha has been a favorite round table guest on the wildly popular “Chelsea Lately”on E! since it’s premier in 2007 and is currently headlining packed comedy clubs across the country with her own brand of sophisticated writing, physicality and glamour. In 2010 Natasha shot a pilot for NBC with Tom Lennon and Ben Garrant from Reno 911 and will be a judge alongside Andy Kindler and Greg Giraldo on the new season of NBC’s LAST COMIC STANDING, hosted by Craig Robinson. She also currently stars in Comedy Central's new hit animated series UGLY AMERICANS. Natasha was most recently seen in the hit movie HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. She has played various deviants in her three-year re-curring stint on Comedy Central's RENO 911. She starred in Comedy Central's pilot GAY ROBOT, and in MTV's hit series THE 70's HOUSE. She has guest-starred on IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, SAMANTHA WHO , AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE , WORST WEEK, TIL DEATH, THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM and the upcoming Comedy Central series NICK SWARDSON'S PRETEND TIME. Born in Rockford, IL and raised in the theater, Natasha has loved being on the stage since she was 10. As a child actress in and around Chicago she spent all of her free time performing in plays. As soon as she graduated high school she moved to New York and attended the Stella Adler Conservatory. Upon receiving an additional degree in theater criticism from Hunter College she swiftly moved to Los Angeles and decided to aim her razor sharp wit at Hollywood instead. Her stand-up television appearances include two knock-out performances on THE TONIGHT SHOW w/ Jay Leno, THE LATE LATE SHOW w/ Craig Ferguson, LAST CALL w/ Carson Daly and she has signed on for a Comedy Central Presents television special and record deal. Natasha has been invited to perform at such festivals as The Vancouver Comedy Festival, SXSW, Sasquatch, Dublin’s Carlsberg Comedy Festival and the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, which she will be making her second appearance this summer in 2010. She resides in Los Angeles in a servantless household.

  • Then put your booty shorts on because – are you ready for this? No, like are you really really ready? – the legendary Pink Sock party returns after a two-year hiatus to present Twerk Thursday at Number 9.



  • One of our favorite parties of the year is the Masquerade & Mischief Queer Purim Party at the DCJCC. Who better to celebrate the life of Queen Esther than a bunch of queens? Devouring the DCJCC’s hamantashen cookies don’t count as carbs on this night, and there is an open bar. Also, it’s a costume party, so we’re going as bottoms.

  • The annual Wig Night Out party at JRs is happening, and is always packed. Pull something out of your drag bag and join. Any donations go directly to the Point Foundation (which is a pretty awesome foundation for gay kids).

  • Since both the Purim and Wig Night Out parties are on the early side, we fully expect you to wear your costumes and wigs down the street to hook up with hot people at CTRL at Cobalt. Yes, the underground queer dance party is now anchoring the last Saturday nights at Cobalt. We went to the opening party last month and there were so many cute boys AND lesbians (and lesbians, girls!).
  • Head over to Phase 1 Dupont for a 90s Throwback party.


  • Head out to Town on Sunday night for the DC Center’s Glamor, Glitter, and Gold Oscar Party. It is always fun, and there are catty comments reading the red carpet. Feel free to wear your best jeans…or a tux. We know he isn’t nominated for Best Director, but Ben Affleck deserves an award for Best Beard in Argo. Yum.
