Comedian and Southern-belle dyke Sherri D. Sutton made a name for herself last year with Don’t Make Fun of Jesus and she packed the house again Friday.

Sutton, a mouthy lesbian from Georgia via Edmonton with a special talent for cultural stereotypes that are actually funny, gives us what’s basically a standup routine that’s nominally about her white trash upbringing.

Where it gets a little bogged down is in the lefty lecturing (Canada’s free health care is awesome; bigotry is bad), and sometimes Sutton changes topic so abruptly your head spins. But the heart of the show, the white trash parts, are genuinely funny and colourful and Sutton is incredibly gifted with accents and voices. The audience loved her.

From the official Fringe Festival guide:

Sherri d. Sutton of Don't Make Fun of Jesus (Best of Fest 2009) is back, and she is spilling the Dirty South's secrets. Come hear stories of the Deep South as only a true Southern Belle Dyke can tell 'em.

"A comedic force of nature. One ridiculously talented woman" - CBC Winnipeg

"Funniest comedy bits we've heard" - Winnipeg Sun; "Wildly brilliant" - Uptown
