Not to mention, be able to laugh and joke about it before hundreds of people you never even met. Comic Lahna Turner is loaded with moxie, that and a deft comedy touch, as evidenced by her performance Friday before a packed house at Stanford & Sons comedy club. And further evidenced by her posing nude while pregnant for the cover of her new CD, “If These Lips Could Talk.”
Make no mistake, Turner’s comedy may be subtle at times, but it’s waaaay out there.
“Is it wrong to tell an AIDS patient to stay positive?” she asks.
Wanna souvenir T shirt to commemorate Turner’s side-splittingly funny show? No problem, other than your only choice being the AIDS patient joke in white letters on a black T.
Try wearing that to a Pride rally…
“I didn’t think (many) people would buy it, so I did a short run,” Turner says. “And then they sold out, so I printed more. It’s gone over really well. I’ve really never had any feedback from people, but I don’t think anybody’s gotten upset.”
Turner says she and husband/funny guy Ralphie May (now slimmed to a 400 pounds and still dropping) love playing Kansas City.
