Justice and beer will be served when Marga Gomez and Julie Goldman convene for three nights of stand-up comedy and barely legal acts at The Club @ La Mama. In their new show, Gomez & Goldman: Stand Up and Slander!, Gomez & Goldman will use every joke in the book to defame Condoleezza Rice, the Cheney family, the axis of evil and Crest White Strips. A surprise dyke tribunal may be held to entertain frivolous lawsuits posed by audience members. This is the first joint project by Gomez & Goldman, two of the most penetrating lesbians in comedy. It may be their last if Alberto Gonzalez gets a hold of them.
