She was the first openly lesbian comedian with an HBO Special and the first to appear on “Late Night with David Letterman” and it will be her first time performing at the Smith Theatre. Don’t miss this ground breaking performance; the truth is life is funny, especially when it’s fermented in Suzanne’s mind.
