Veteran comics Barbara Holliday and Dave Reinitz helm Flappers, where renowned comedians such as Adam Sandler and Susie Abraham have stopped by to tickle the funny bones of audience members at two area stages. Some of the upcoming performers in May include headliner Dwayne Perkins, a Brooklyn native who, on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, pondered which emoticons are platonic and which are flirty. Opening several of his showcases are comics Kwame Siegel and Gillian Bellinger, a star in the hilariously scary movie Feeding Frenzy. Later in the month, the satirical political punditry of Will Durst casts its ballot to spread belly laughs among the people. Durst has mocked both sides of the political aisle, taking inspiration from lifelong heroes Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny to inject humor and intentional absurdity into guest spots on C-SPAN and CNN.
